Ontario Knife Company's industrial and agricultural knives have developed over the years to include a wide variety of products based on evolving customer demands. These fruit, vegetable, field, harvesting, table and construction knives feature either a 1095 carbon steel blade with hardwood handles or a 420 stainless blade and a molded plastic handle. These versatile, all-purpose knives may be used to multi-task harvesting, digging and industrial cutting applications.
This knife has been in my family since I was a child. When the wooden handled one wore out, my father ordered the blue handled knife.
It continues to be my favorite knife. Recently the last one went missing from a camping trip, so I just ordered five more!
I don't know where I originally bought this knife many years ago but I have used it for everything! When I looked at your site a year ago it wasn't clear to me that I could buy one directly from you. When I saw that I could a couple of weeks ago, I order 5 knives, 2 for me and one for each of my 3 daughters. It is so comfortable to hold, sharp enough for anything, short enough blade to cut up little veggies as well as cardboard!
This knife is easy to sharpen and I keep it very sharp. Due to the thin kerf, this blade cuts better than any other knife I have. For example, this is the best knife for getting thin, uniform slices of cheese. We have one that was passed down from a relative decades ago. It has been sharpened so many times the blade is visibly worn down. I just bought 5 more to have a couple of extra in the house and to give as presents for Christmas. I was really happy to discover that this knife was still available to buy (I'm guessing that my old one is 20 - 30 years old).
