While I haven't used it yet, I love the look and feel of this knife. It feels sturdy, the sabre grind is what made choose it over the SP46, and the handle is very 'grippy'. Seems as though this SP47 model is discontinued, as I was only able to find it on the Ontario knife site, so I'm very glad to have it for that reason as well. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the ridiculous sheath that comes with it. It's at least 3 inches longer than the knife blade is, and is very cumbersome. I have ordered a custom kydex sheath for it, which cost me another $40. I have other Ontario knives, and don't have a single complaint with any of them, except for the SP47 sheath.

If I owned only one knife and it was this one ,I would be happy with it. But it isnt my only knife, I have two other knives that I call favorites also. the gen II sp50 and a mora robust.Each knife has its place for what it is used for . The gen II sp47 is my companion when im taking walks in the woods, it can do it all. In my opinion it is without a doubt the best knife to strap on when hittin the trail. The only mod I made to it was to cut off the top guard for choking up . The sheath I put some work into that also and have no complaints. Also very happy with ontario-knife-store. No complaints. Fast shipping. THANKS

Great little knife. Once sharpened, it shaved hair even after batoning with it. Great bang for the buck ! The entire Spec-Plus series ROCKS ! I have an Sp8,10,17,47,AFSK, & Kukri. They ALL perform great. One of the best bang for the buck series available.
