OH7027: Old Hickory Bird and Trout

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 carbon steel for outdoor pursuits, often taking the butcher knives and shortening them to a more usable length and adding a sheath for easy carry. 

Seeing this, Ontario saw fit to release a factory-ready version, dubbed the Hunting Knife, which featured a 5.5" clip point blade with flat grinds and a swedge. With the addition of a quality leather sheath, this knife could be taken right into the field for hunting, survival, and bushcraft, and of course, it still worked great for butchering and food prep.

The Bird and Trout follows in the footsteps of the Hunting Knife, bringing a unique design to the Old Hickory lineup with a stock leather sheath for easy carry right out of the box. It is, of course, meant for handling small animals and it's extremely nimble at just an ounce and less than seven inches overall. It's a great first knife or 'throw in a bag for later' knife - just be sure to oil the blade before you put it away and it will be a faithful companion for years to come.


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.

Just expensive paring knife
This is just an expensive paring knife. Blade is unevenly ground- the reverse side still has 3/8 Inch ricasso, this makes it impossible to sharpen the entire blade. Handle is rough enough to give you splinters. They don't mention that the sheath is made in China (found that sticker under the belt loop).I love KC. Great products (except this knife), rapid shipping. Save your money, not worth a $30 (with shipping and tax) paring knife. Go to a store and get a paring knife. Could this be used on bird and trout? - Yes, but not worth the price. Not returning it as I've sharpened it (at least the first 3 inches) and sanded the handle.
