OLD-WORLD STYLE COMES ALONG WITH THE OLD HICKORY HUNTING KNIFE FROM ONTARIO KNIFE COMPANY®
OKC® Brings Classic Old School Artistry and Quality in a Durable,
Multi-Purpose Knife from Old Hickory Line
Ontario Knife Company® (OKC®), the award-winning cutlery maker with over 130 years of experience and heritage, adds a rugged hunting knife design to its revered Old Hickory product line that was first introduced in 1924. The Old Hickory Hunting Knife lives up to the reputation and design that has made these knives favorites for decades.
Like taking a step back in time, the Old Hickory Hunting Knife has the classic, remarkably-crafted hardwood handle that is secured with brass compression rivets. The 5.5-inch blade is constructed of high-carbon steel, which is capable of retaining an edge better than many stainless steel knives and it has a hardness rating of 55-57 HRC. OKC still employs manufacturing techniques used over 90 years ago and integrates them with state-of-the-art practices and facilities.
“If you went into your grandparents’ or even great grandparents’ kitchens, pulled a knife out of the drawer and held it in your hand – that’s what an Old Hickory knife of today looks and feels like,” said Andrew Yates, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “That knife may even be an Old Hickory blade. We wanted to add a hunting-style blade to a series that is already popular and trusted among outdoorsmen. The Old Hickory Hunting Knife is a perfect all-purpose blade that will last. It’s a classic knife that will last for generations.”
The Old Hickory Hunting Knife is proudly backed by a lifetime warranty and Made in the USA.
