Details

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.

Rough shape out of the package.

Blade was barely sharp. It took a while to get a good shaving sharp edge. Handle is tight but fitment was off. Luckily the scales are too big leaving room to sand them down to fit correctly, in the process, I was able to shape them to fit my hand a bit better.

My old knife

I bought the butcher knife in 1976, while taking a high school cooking course, and ever since then it has been the knife I most often reach for. The heft, balance, retained edge, all the characteristics are just right. It will easily outlive me, and is already coveted by the next generation. It does sound like, from reviews I’ve read, that the quality has slipped in newer knives, and delivery might be an issue. That is very unfortunate, and why I won’t be ordering another one today.

Great edge

We raise and process all of our meat. I have a variety of knives that I’ve collected over the years. When I first received this butcher knife it did not have an edge at all. I put an edge on it and was excited to break down a hog with it. It was everything I hoped for!

When all my knives are sharpened, the Old Hickory’s have the sharpest edge. And the have the best edge retention of all my knives.

I hope to one day have nothing but Old Hickory’s in my line up!
