The Ontario Knife Company sp1 marine combat knife. This thing is a freaking sword. It is a 121 I believe inches overall seven of. It is blade it's a clip point. And it's kind a double-edged there's a definitely. Some edge on the back end. Or at the clip points. It does have a nice deep blood groove. And a really good ergonomics on the handle it's a very non-slip. Ibelieve you could probably use. This regardless of how wet slimy. Whatever your hands happen to be it's uh close to a pound like ten points. Something ounces of 1095 powder coated steel carbon steel so definitely not. Something you'd want. If you're in like a real humid climate. Or if so you know take according precautions the knife itself. Iknow is 100% made in America. Ican't say the same for the sheath which is very nice. Or for the box either. One of those could have been made in the China. It has a very nice lanyard very sturdy it's a full tang knife encapsulated.
If you don't know the difference between a regular full tang. And like an encapsulated go to like Google. And they can pull you. Some pictures up that would explain. Icould possibly explain. It but a very solid knife. Ihaven't had this. One for very long but. Ihave taken it on a. Few trips with me I've put. It through a little bit of use. And it's as sturdy as. Iwould expect from a slab of steel. That size and for I think. It was 37 bucks so it's a deal let's deal steal of a deal the sheath is really well-made it's. Some kind of leather. Or leather like material. And nylon it has a lot of different points. That you can use to mount. It to whatever gear. You happen to be mounting it to backpack your pants boot bike. If you happen to attach to.
That it has a really tight lock up. Once it's in there and. It does have a double clasp so. Once it's in it's not done anywhere. And it's its pretty sturdy. Imean I'm not Hulk hands. And get and try to yank. It out but it's not going anywhere. Once it's in it's a it's for 37 bucks I'd say. It is exactly what you would expect. It to be plus maybe a little bit. Idon't know that it's bomb-proof but I'm not planning on testing it necessarily quiet. That heavily or for the money it's not a bad way to go.

Everybody we're going to do. Another knife review. And today we're going to talk about. Another small fixed blade. Ilove small fixed blades I'll tell. You why I have a specific use for small fee explodes. Icarry a small fixed blade. Icarry my firearm and the reason is. Anybody ever goes for my firearm I'm gonna have to use my strong side hand to retain my firearm in. That situation I don't believe no matter. How much you train. You can 100% count on reaching across your body with your weak side hand pulling a folder out of your pocket opening. That folder and bringing it to use. Because remember you're wrestling with. Somebody over your firearm it's a life-or-death situation chances are it's going to go to the ground. You have got to come out on top of. This your life depends on. It so my philosophy is carry a small fixed blade on your weak side.
That way you don't have to worry about fine motor skills. While you're retaining your firearm with your strong side. You can reach with your weak side pull out. That fixed blade it's automatically ready to go. You got to do is start sticking it in. Somebody to get them off of. Itypically I carry mine on like. Isay on the weak side iwb appendix carry. And it's easy to go to its natural location for when you're in a fight. Or flight situation your hands want to come to your core anyway naturally so that's a natural location to locate. That at its easy to hide easy to access. Ican get it into use. Ihave to all right. What we're going to cover today is the tops knives lioness Rocky's addition. Now tops knives is well-known in the community they're an american-made product. They have a vast product line. Even know many models. They got a 10000 different models.
Idon't know they are crazy. That they've got so. Many models like I say they're an american-made product with a great reputation. They primarily build in 1095 carbon steel. Although they do have. Some stainless but primarily in 1095. They have a fantastic heat treat for 1095. They really know how to do. This steel they have a great reputation as far as. That goes the line acid model. You know anything about. That it's more marketed towards females it's a fairly small model. One in particular is in a finish. What they call their rockies edition but the other models there's two other models. One is actually pink powder coated with black g10 handle scales. And the other one is purple powder coated with black g10 handle scales. And that's pretty feminine. Idon't have anything against. Idon't want to carry a pink.
Or purple knife personally but. You know to each their own. This model you can see. That the steel is done in an acid stone wash it's a medium dark acid wash with a fairly heavy stone wash finish on. It it's its very good overall it's very. Even overall no issues as far as the finish goes. And then the handle scale is in natural micarta that's a little. More masculine looking knife. It does say lioness on. It I'm not going to sweat. That I'm not worried about my weather. Anybody thinks that my knife is masculine enough. Or not as long as it's not pink. Or purple so you know let's go ahead. And do the specs on. This knife you got a three. And a half inch blade length. And I'm measuring that to the plunge the blade stock thickness is about an eighth of an inch. Or three point two millimeters the blade width from the edge to the spine.
One point one inches are 28 millimeters the handle length. Imeasured this from the strike but here to the finger choil I'm making all of. That the handle length. And that's 40 three inches. Or 10 centimeters the handle thickness 498 thousand so you're right on a half an inch there twelve point six millimeters the handle width at the widest point here. One point zero one inches. Or twenty-five point seven millimeters the overall length right at seven. And a half inches or nine centimeters the weight of the knife itself three point three two ounces. Or ninety-four grams with the sheath. This is the sheath right here with belt clip on. It you're looking at a total of five ounces. Or a hundred and forty-two grams. What to go ahead and take a look at.
That sheath that knocked out it's a Kydex sheath let's say a taco. Or clamshell type of sheet meaning it's folded over. This way and a fixed closed on. One side with bolt on hardware. Ibelieve that that is spaced four at a clock. Ihave not tried this I'm using the built in clip. You can see I've got. Where it's candid right since. It appendix carry you'll see. That carry down in the belt is going to can't. This right in the fold of my leg to crotch there for a. More comfortable carry. Now will say I think. This sheath material. This codex is a little heavy. You know this is 80. Or 90 thousand scottex. Ididn't measure I probably should it's a little bit heavy for iwb carry. Now that's that's not good. Ijust think it's a little heavier for my preferred carry. You know if you're going to carry on the outside of your belt. You really want a tough sheath then that's good actually like. Isay it's not bad it's just sort of personal preference thing and then in the design of the sheath the only thing I really have issue with again because of the way.
Icarry is the point down here I'm gonna take. And I'm gonna radius. This over and soften. This point on my grinder I'm gonna. You know about like. You know that keeps. It from jabbing into my crotch. And being uncomfortable. When I'm bending over. Or seated overall the quality of the sheath is good the clip is plastic. You can see it's a retained type of clip. You know it's fairly stout. Idon't think you're going to break. It under normal use it's screwed mounted with a large rubber o-ring. That gives it tensions so it's. It won't rotate you consciously want to rotate er. It has a you know a great amount of force on. It the hardware is finished well on. Idon't really see any issues in the quality of the sheath at.
All the fit is good. Isee here you can see yeah there's not. Any play anything and you've got a nice ramp here to push off on with your thumb to pull. It out so overall the sheath is pretty good quality. Now let's take a look at. This knife this is a small knife at about seven-and-a-half inches overall. Now take a look at my hand I've got medium-sized hands I'm not a real big cat but look at the way the fit of. This I've got full grit. All four fingers on. It I've got this super big coil here. Imean super big some good jumping right here in a natural position. Where my thumb's going to fall in the forward position. That out of my waistband. Ihave to use it for its intended purpose that's the grip.
That I'm going to use primarily. Or initially I need to. You know readjust it to a reverse grip. Something so the design of. This is absolutely fantastic from my intended purpose the blade style is almost Persian in fact. You could compare this to say like the cold steel towel water folders which I've done a review on you're welcome to check the blade profile is almost exactly the same almost exactly the same so. What you've got see. You hold the and you've got the centerline of the knife you've got a handle. Or natural draw up here. And then you've got a lick. Or ting to the centerline of the knife a slight rise towards the tip a slight rise in a trailing point. And then the edge you've got a very short flat section here. And then barely rising towards. That tip the tip is good it's in line with the design here. It gives you a natural feel for where the tip is. You need to manipulate the tip. If you're using it in a utility use. You can choke up in. This big hair soil and you're very close to.
That edge it doesn't have a secondary coil. You can get into but. This primary coil is huge. You can get really close to the edge. This there's another set of jump. And further out on the blade towards a tip it's not comfortable for me to use my hands are just too small. And stretching from. This soil to there is a little much for me. Although you could use. It in a pinch grip with. This finger you can see I've got a natural. You know you wanted to use. This it's a little pointy for me but. You wanted to use it in for skinning game. You can use that way. Any fine detail cutting but in my primary use I'm looking for. That big coil that natural hand grip. Iwant to be able to stab stab of course.
Ihave to use this for the intended purpose as far as my intended purpose. Idon't fear slipping forward. Idon't fear falling back. You see you've got a nice bit of palm swell here it's its fairly exaggerated actually for Palms well. Because it's very thin in the toil area. And then it thins out again back here going into. This impact head so. You know this really is a fairly pronounced palm swell. It does really lock. That knife in and combined with the forward finger choil. It gives you a very secure feel. Now as far as the butt-end goes I'm calling this an impact tip but. You have large hands it's its not really. You can see in my medium hand. Irotate I've got a little bit. That extends out I could use.
It for a non-lethal sort of impact device but. You have a large hand it's really going to cover. That you're not going to be able to use. That then you're looking at. You know the primary use will be to attach a lanyard. You do have a very large lanyard hole no issue at. All get in 550 cord through there. Even with the core in alright as far as tops 1095. They use like I said already. They have a fantastic reputation as far as their heat-treat of 1095 I've had no issues I've had no rust issues good edge retention the grind on. This is a full flat grind. It is done very well. You can see it does not intrude into the spine of the night so the grind geometry is pretty much perfect from the edge to the spine. And not through the spine it's. Both sides the edge grind itself is fairly thin. It is fairly thin behind the edge it's a good slicey knife.
You can see side to side here. And from the tip to the plunge grind. That it's its you know they've done a good job there is a small sharpening coil here as. You can see that there is a small sharpening coil to terminate. That grind line in so you're not grinding into the plunge. You know a hassle with your sharpening or edge Flair. You sharpen all the way kudos to Tops for. That is a much-needed feature. Many knife manufacturers overlook the fit. And finish as far as the handle goes your basic natural McCarter there're no liners sometimes tops were used colored liners under their micarta to offset. That but on this model. They don't I think it's really attractive. It is natural micarta. It looks natural to. It doesn't look fake color II.
You know it's not fancy the grip is. You know it's micarta. This is linen micarta here isn't it's the finer micarta. You can see it's not canvas micarta it's linen. It does have some surface texture. You can see here it is smooth but. It does have some surface texture. Ilike mica by Carter. It gets wet and at least in. This surface finish widths. And texture the exposed fibers here. Idon't know that it's almost like. They swell up when water hits them. It becomes a little tackier to. Whereas a smooth finish GTN. You know the fiberglass that's in GTN really doesn't react with water. And a smooth finish gtn will stay smooth. If it's wet and sometimes becomes slippery. This has got more of a. Idon't know again a sort of naturally tacky but not obtrusive finish to. It as along with the jumping up at the blade tip your primary jump in here you've got. Another set of jump in here. And that's a little far back as far as my grip goes.
Idon't know exactly. What it would be used for no jumping on the inside of the grip at. All not in the soil. Or across the grip itself. Nothing on the butt-end. This knife it comes naturally to the hand like. It fits my hand well it's got a fantastic blade design. That moderately rising trailing point like. Isay it's a lot like almost exactly the same profile as the cold steel tower war folder which. And is my primary carry folder so. This comes into my system very easily. It comes into my hand very easily it's easy to carry it's small its compact it's lightweight the construction is exemplary there's no rough edges no gaps no misfit on the scales.
It feels like it was made to go together. It was made to go together. You know what I'm talking about again the sheath. You know nothing wrong with the sheet. Ithink it's just a little thick as far as the material goes for my personal use but there's. Nothing wrong with the design other. What I said about just rolling this tip a little bit. And again that's because. It iw baby you know. This clip it does set off of the body a little bit but. And iwb carry with this clip over your pants. And your belt it actually. This hot right here pushes the sheath into your body. It doesn't really push the clip out. Because the clip is on your belt the belts what's putting pressure in so. This hot really gets pushed into your body. Then out so it does doesn't make. It hard to conceal anything I've not had. Any problem with it coming off of my belt.
Idon't know it's a. You know like a nylon injection molded clip. Idon't know how tough it's going to be but. Idon't foresee having any issue with. Ido like I say I'm pretty sure. Icould put a small tech lock on. Icould do a loop okay just to put a loop on. Icould carry even just leave the hardware in. And put a piece of cord on. Icould carry it rips cord style like the CRKT. That Lucas Burnley design that's a good carry option also so. You know that's a good sheath. Idon't have any issue with. And the knife is a high quality knife it's small compact lightweight fit. And finishes good a good steel that's easy to resharpen like. Isay 1095 is a carbon steel. It will rust you don't take care of. It but I've not had. Any issue as long as. You just use some minimal care practice with. Ijust keep it coated down with a very light layer of your favorite oil. Iuse tough glide which is basically a dry lubricant after.
It dries so I'm gonna say hey. You need a small compact fixed blade lightweight maybe you're looking for something to carry parallel. And my philosophy with. This which is to use with my firearm for offside carry. This is a great little knife. It doesn't hurt at it says lioness on. It I'm not so sensitive about. That's because this finish is pretty manly. And yeah that's not such a big issue. And again look at that right there proudly made in USA made in USA. You can get one of these for about $100. Ithink that's a pretty decent deal guys so. If you're interested in. Something like I do recommend. And like I would trust my life to. This thing in the intended use. Ihave put it into my system so again. Iappreciate you guys taking the time to view. One of my videos I want to say God bless to. Everybody you have a great day we'll talk to.
