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.
I am a lover of coarbon steel knives. They take a little more care but you can keep them sharp easily. This knife is great quality for the price. The logo on my handle came off when I was coating it with coconut oil, but thats minor in my opinion. I have used Ontario knives for mostly tactical applications but both my wife & I intend on collecting all their Old Hickory collection. We really love these knives. Even the ice pick is quality.
The Cook’s knife was exactly what I was looking for. A kitchen knife with a carbon steel blade at an affordable price. It feels very sturdy and well made.
