This knife is used by the Air Warrior Program and other branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
The ASEK Survival Knife System designed and manufactured by The Ontario Knife Company is the one and only Survival/Egress knife chosen by the Untied States Army to be included in its Air Warrior Equipment System. Don’t be fooled by imitations – This is the only ASEK Survival Knife System tested and approved by PM Soldier and Natick Research Labs to meet the criteria defined by the US Army. This system is a Survival/Egress knife with plexiglas breaker, hammer, saw teeth, serrations, spear holes, lanyard hole and insulated guard. It comes with an anodized aluminum strap cutter to cut webbings, cord, cloth, etc. It has a screwdriver and a honing rod to keep your knife field sharp. The fire retardant scabbard fits on the pilot’s vests, load bearing equipment, web belt, belt or can be worn on the calf as designed for Air Warrior. The strap cutter fits in the left leg pocket on flight suits and is a must for medical crews.

fire retardant? you mean fire resistant right?

Ronald Dunne says:

Looks like a pretty THIN blade for a survival knife… what is that, 1/8th” inch? Other than that it looks pretty good. Prefer a 1/4 inch thick myself tho. And what is meant by a “replaceable blade”?
Altogether it looks like a nice set-up, but sadly the thinness of the blade queers the deal for me. Thanks for the review!
