The Old Hickory line of carbon steel knives has long been a favorite for modification by end users. Bushcrafters and outdoorsmen love the heritage, the American-made quality and 1095 carbon steel for outdoors pursuits, often taking the butcher knives and shortening them to a more usable length and adding a sheath for easy carry.
Realizing this, Ontario has released the Fish & Game Knife (#7024) with a flat ground satin-finished high carbon steel spearpoint blade reminescent of the Kephart Bushcrafting survival knife. With the addition of a quality leather sheath, this knife can be taken right into the field for hunting, survival, and bushcraft, and of course, it still works great for hunting, fishing and food prep. Like the Kephart knife, the Ontario Old Hickory Outdoor Fish & Small Game Knife is perfect for all your outdoor adventures, from backpacking and camping to hunting and fishing. This knife has been optimized for dressing fish and small game. It has a hardwood handle and a durable leather sheath.
History. 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 high 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.
