Okapi is a pocketknife and hand-tool manufacturing company based on the North-East coast of South Africa. Supplying Africa with affordable, highly durable and functional knives and agricultural tools for 112 years has been no small task but accomplished with much success. With such a wide range of environments and conditions to factor, from the arid savannahs to the thick, tropical jungles, Okapi products can be found taming the wild in all of them. From forestry and fire control implements to machetes to sugar cane knives, Okapi covers the gamut to be a one stop shop for all needs.
Okapi's Reliance Machete features a black coated 1055 high carbon steel blade for rust prevention and durability. The orange injection molded handle is textured and comfortable to grip. It is resistant to shrinkage and swelling and the bright orange makes it easy to find if you drop it in thick bush. The handle features a prominent lanyard hole for securing the blade to your wrist via lanyard (not included) or easy merchandising.
