    ONTARIO ASEK AIRCREW EGRESS SURVIVAL KNIFE

    Post by ladrang on Fri Sep 09, 2011 4:55 pm

    Hi folks got it today, this piece was missing to my warrior vest, this knife has been chosen by the U.S. ARMY to be included in its AIR WARRIOR EQUIPMENT SYSTEM.
    This knife has been used by canadian pilot or door gunner to Afghanistan.

    The Gerber ASEK would also be acceptable, but most crews don't like it because it is bigger and bulkier. The Ontario knives are smaller and being smaller, take up less room on the vest, which means more space for other junk. Your Ontario ASEK is an early model as the later ones have the foilage green strap cutter.

    Thanks for your comments, they are always appreciated, so now I need to find the later model Wink

    I do, but family is sleeping right now and I have drill in a couple hours. I will see if I can get one this afternoon, maybe even one mounted on a vest as we are having TA-50 showdowns today.
