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.

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.

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
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.
1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
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.

Great knife
I had one I tried to make from the 7" knife, this one is so much better. lol It took a long time to get it, almost 4 months but worth the wait. This will be used as my camp knife, light duty, not batoning. It was sharp, but not as sharp as most Old hickory's I've bought. Didn't take much, a few strokes on the ceramic rod and strop fixed it. Overall very pleased with the purchase.

Best Value Dollar for Dollar
At $20 it's very hard to think of a better knife for the money. The 1095 steel is very good and I can get a wickedly sharp edge on this knife no problem. It also developed a cool patina over time and as long and you clean and dry the knife correctly rust shouldn't be much of an issue. The hardwood handles give plenty of room for grip and the natural wood feel is very nice. There are knives on the market that at 10x more expensive while only being maybe 10% better which really goes to show how excellent this value is. The only gripe i have with the knife is that i wish the heal of the blade was a little more scooped out to make it more comfortable to choke up. However that helps illustrate another strong suit and that's modification. If you want to get into knife making or modification in your garage this knife is perfect for getting started at a low price. It's not quite a blank canvas but it's definitely an great starting point. Think of it as the Harley Sportster of the knife world.

Great Knife , poor sheath.
The knife is great. Perfect size and very sharp. The sheath is terrible, I had it on my belt less then 5 times and the stitching on the belt strap already failed. I found a different sheath that fit the blade and problem solved.
