FUNCTION AND FORM FLOW WITH THE NEW ONTARIO KNIFE COMPANY® SHIKRA FOLDER
Experience Versatility and Beauty With OKC’s Take on the Elegant Shikra Design
Ontario Knife Company® (OKC®) has a long-standing reputation for knives built for extreme conditions. For over 130 years, the company has blended classic design with extreme quality, all of which has been poured into their latest – the Shikra Folder. This lightweight, functional knife will prove to be a blade you will carry everywhere.
Getting straight to the point of the OKC Shikra Folder, the 3.2-inch Stainless-Steel blade has a 55-57 HRC rating with a beveled taper to a very fine tip. This makes for a highly versatile knife with a slotted spine by the grip for delicate work when opened to its full 7.4-inch length. The handle is linen micarta on one side and full Titainium on the other. This reduced the weight while providing excellent grip, even in wet conditions. A belt-clip helps secure the knife in your possession when not in use.
“The Shikra blade design is well known for being highly versatile and we set out to make a highly functional, and lightweight folder that our customers would want to carry every day,” said Kenneth Trbovich, President and CEO of Ontario Knife Company. “The fine-point blade is incredibly strong, yet subtle for delicate work, making it a great knife for everyday use, as well as defense. The combination of linen micarta and Titainium for the handle makes it light in weight with a secure feeling in the hand – just what we wanted in a folder we’d carry all the time.”
