Ontario SP10 Raider Bowie – Badass Knife of the Week

Want to show someone what a real knife looks like a la Crocodile Dundee? Point them to the latest Badass Knife of the Week.

The SP10 Spec Plus Marine Raider Bowie is a beastly blade from the inimitable Ontario Knife Company and is among the best all-around heavyweight knives on the market.

Modeled after the classic American Bowie, this knife boasts a jumbo-sized 9.75-inch blade made of 1095 carbon steel, which is insanely tough and easy to sharpen. Although it’s not corrosion resistant, the steel is coated with epoxy textured powder coating for extra protection from the elements and to minimize the steel’s reflective properties.

A big knife like this may come across as a gimmick, but OKC does not mess around when it comes to making knives. The Spec Plus series is designed for military, sporting, and first responder purposes, so you know it can withstand some of the toughest tasks. And, of course, it’s made in the United States.

Because OKC knows you’ll be wielding this beast for hours, the handle is made from durable and comfortable Kraton, which conceals the full tang construction. A guard separating the blade from the handle will keep your hand from sliding forward in the unlikely event of slippage.

The knife also comes with a combination leather and Cordura sheath for all those times you’ll want this faithful companion at your side — whether you’re out batoning wood or doing light carving.
