Old Hickory Hunting Knife 5.5" 1095 Carbon Steel Blade, Leather Sheath - 7026
OH7026: Old Hickory 5.5" Hunting Knife
Ontario Knife Company
The Old Hickory line 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.
Seeing this, Ontario has seen fit to release a factory-ready version, featuring a 5.5" clip point blade with flat grinds and a swedge. 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 butchering and food prep.
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.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
This product is USA born and raised.
