American-Made Cook Knife Re-Joins Classic OKC® Cutlery Line

American-Made Cook Knife Re-Joins Classic OKC® Cutlery Line

The Ontario Knife Company® (OKC®) introduced Old Hickory® knives in 1924 and since then the product line has proven to be as tough and durable as its namesake. Building off these classic designs, Old Hickory knives are made from high carbon steel and feature hardwood handles secured with brass compression rivets. Due to popular demand for a traditional chef’s knife, OKC is proud to reintroduce a new and improved Old Hickory Cook Knife to the line. 

A good chef’s knife is a must-have for any kitchen—it is the perfect blade for slicing and dicing. The Old Hickory Cook Knife is made from 57-59 HRC hardness-rated, 1075 steel. The high-carbon steel blade requires extra care as it should be kept oiled but it holds an edge much better than most stainless steel. It measures 13-inches long overall with an 8.12-inch blade that is expertly balanced and ready to prepare any meal. 

A perfect blend of steel and hardwood, this slice of Americana is proudly manufactured in the United States by skilled artisans using the same processes that have been a staple of Old Hickory knifes for over 90 years. These knives have stood the test of time and have proven to be the best carbon-steel kitchen cutlery available anywhere. The Old Hickory Cook Knife has an MSRP of $24.95.
