I understand what you mean by primitive- if it wasn't for the rivets, I would wonder what the stitching is made of

Well got both the Gerber Strong-arm and the Ontario SP15 LSA.

Gerber: The Strong-arm Knife is everything that Gerber Claimed, well made and well designed. The textured grip stays put in even wet hands. It's still in the Kitchen Processing Stage of knife trials, but it is working well and hasn't caused any "Hand Fatigue" chopping veggies or slicing meat.Solid dependable Knife.
The sheath on the other hand is a Techno-wienies nightmare. In order to make it adaptable for horizontal carry the Nylon web belt loop is only retained with a snap for closure. First thing I intend to do is permanently affix it to the rubber-like scabbard sewing the excess nylon webbing near the snap closure so it won't ever open.
I'd rate the Strong-arm Knife at 4 1/2 stars out of 5. The sheath/scabbard at about 1 out of 5 stars.

Ontario SP15 LSA: The sheath is primitive at best,bot even worth discussing 1/2 star.
Photo's of the Blade don't do it justice. While it is center-pointed in alignment with the grip, and back weighted for excellent balance in the hand, it isn't a Traditional Fighting Fairbairn-Sykes Style Knife. The fine edged side of the blade works about the same as that of my Pentagon Elite only it's 6 inches vice 5. The serrated false cut back-strap side of the blade is most unusual. It isn't of equal proportion (thicker & not as wide as the fine edge blade side) so it is immediately discernible with the naked eye as different than a Classic Fairbairn-Sykes Style. The serrations are cut wide so that they totally encircle my fero -rod. Makes for an excellent sparker. While the serrations work well on nylon webbing, they are a bit to coarse (wide) for para-cord, but the fine edge works well. I'll need some more time wielding the SP15 LSA before I'll be ready to rate it. It is rather unique. Feel free to toss any questions Ya'll might have about either knife at me, I'll do my best to test or explain.
