First introduced in 1924, the Old Hickory® knives are the most venerable product line still in active production. The Old Hickory® knives feature a hardwood handle secured with brass compression rivets to 1075 carbon steel blades that are both very sharp and capable of retaining an edge better than most stainless knives. Proudly manufactured with artisan processes for over 90 years, Old Hickory® has stood the test of time and is proven to be the best carbon steel kitchen cutlery sold today.
USE & CARE
Please note that the Old Hickory knives are made with carbon steel. We have been making Old Hickory since the early 1900's. Carbon steel knives require extra care to prevent rusting and oxidation of the surface. Old Hickory should not be placed in a dishwasher or allowed to soak in a sink. We recommend cleaning the blade with a damp sponge or cloth and dry thoroughly. Some people go a step further and apply a light coating of vegetable oil to the blades surface. If your blade shows signs of rust, use some steel wool to remove it and then apply some oil to the blade. To keep the blade razor sharp, use a honing steel, sometimes referred to as sharpening steel, or sharpening stick. After years of use, the steel blade will develop a patina, a darkening which is desirable and an indication of its age. Old Hickory knives are durable and affordable, but do require special care.
Old Hickory® 705 5-Pc. Cutlery Set
l have been using my Old Hickory knife for twenty-five years. It holds a keen edge, and, when it finally does dull a little, one minute with a sharpening steel brings back edge. So, I bought these two sets as gifts, which were delightfully received. I highly recommend these knives.
Awesome knives. Factory edges are super sharp. Quality is exemplary. Ontario Knife Works website was easily navigated and their shipping was extremely quick. The order was perfect.
Excellent quality knives. We had a set years ago and we no longer had them so we thought we would replace them with a new set. These knives do not disappoint. Would highly recommend these knives.
Fantastic cutlery and wears really well, and lasts a lifetime... My old ones are more than 70 years old and I am still using them - steak knives, spatulas, paring knives....
