Ontario SP8 Machete Survival Knife (Spec Plus 8)
Spec Plus 8 (SP8) knife is also known as the Machete Survival Knife.
The Machete Survival knife looks akin to a cleaver, but is also thick
giving it the feel of a machete. The SP8 Machete Survival knife also has
medium "teeth" (top serrations) on the spine of the long blade, making
it ideal for sawing. Of all the Next Generation Spec Plus Knives, the
SP8 Machete Survival knife is the only Spec Plus knife that features a
singular guard (Front Quillon) on the grip and a choil on the blade. A
flat wedge style tip coupled with the lack of rear quillon (guard)
allows the SP8 Machete Survival Knife to be handled similar to a saber
grip and used for prying. With all the possible applications, it is easy
to see why Ontario refers to this knife as the Machete Survival knife.
