Old Hickory Paring Knife 3.25" Blade
Handcrafted in America. This knife has a high carbon steel blade and genuine hickory wood handles. The blades are tempered and hand ground to retain sharpness, and the handles are flame burnt and buffed for a unique antiqued finish.
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.

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
Yes it will rust if abused. Don't get one unless you plan to learn how to care for carbon steel knives. You CAN sharpen this like a razor and it holds it's edge fairly well. Easily maintainable, cuts well. cheap, lasts forever.

60 Years Old and Still Going Strong
I use one of these that belonged to my mother. It's still going strong. I use it at least every day or two. As with all carbon steels, this knife must be cared for. Clean and dry it after use. The blade is a good utility shape and can be easily touched up on a stone or by file. The stone will give the superior edge, but for a knife of this type, a file is usually good enough for fruits, vegetables and packaged meats. You could certainly dress out a deer with this blade, but you might have to stop a time or two to touch up the blade. For everyday kitchen utility work, the blade should last weeks or months without need of sharpening. Know what work you want a knife to perform, then choose the appropriate blade shape, blade steel, and blade length. And learn how to take care of it before you whine about it rusting.
