    They are fantastic for food prep and removing splinters. And by food pred I mean knocking out a cow with it and and by removing splinters I mean prying door jams open.

    I've heard, read, and even said a blade was "a sharpened pry bar." That is a sharpened pry bar. But, to OP's question, I never seen or heard of one.

    Straight. Up. Tanks. Horrible and I mean horrible sheath though and as far as I know, there isn't much available in the after market. I'm not going out on a very far limb by saying these may be the toughest knives built for their purpose.

    What purpose is that? Keeping someone from standing up?

    I think they took cues from the Landkreuzer P.1000 Ratte.

    It's meant to be hit on plain and simple. It's pretty singularly purposed, although I have heard it described on other forums as the ultimate survival knife, which it clearly isn't. But, if you need to get the keys out of your locked car by cutting a hole in the roof, this could be the knife to do it with.

    I remember seeing those for sale. Reminds me of the thickness of the Smith & Wesson Homeland Security tanto and there SWEXT knife. Too thick for my uses. I sold my homeland security knife at a gunshow but still have a SWEXT. More like a sharpened boat anchor.

    I have one and yes it is very sturdy. Has very long primary bevel so even though it is very thick, it is also very wide and still you can get a useful Edge on it. I bought mine used on the trade blanket and it came with a Kydex sheath so overall I like it actually. I put a shaving sharp edge on it the other day with my work Sharp. Please excuse the half-finished handle wrap. 20190605_164611.jpg

    Those are both .25” thick. Same as the BK2. One of the photos in the original post shows the comparison between .25” (BK2, SWEXT, etc) and the .375 Ontario.

    Is that the signature edition? If it’s the regular Afghan Bush it’s .25” thick. Only this signature series one has the .375” thickness.

    get a half inch thick Kukri and have it cut down? lol.......just seems like.....at that point your basically carrying a hatchet with an odd shaped handle......I'd wager the hatchet would be more.....more.

    I dunno..... BK2 is comically overbuilt as is, anything bigger than that just seems like a solution in search of a problem.

    I may be wrong, it MAY be a fantastic blade for " all kinds of things " .......but it seems so specialized it would limit its usefulness.....

    At 3/8" thick I wouldn't even consider it.
