“Whether you’re out for a day hike or exploring one of our nation’s many beautiful national parks, having a quality, trusted blade on hand while you hit the trails can come in handy,” said David Fenske, Vice President of Ontario Knife Company. “The new OKC Hiking Knife is functional, sleek-looking, and made with quality lightweight materials making it THE trusted tool for your next excursion outdoors,” he added.
Weighing a mere 5 ounces, the new OKC Hiking Knife is a lightweight fixed blade knife that won’t weigh you down or let you down.

Perhaps the Hiking Knife’s most eye-catching feature is its handle. It features a unique, outdoors-inspired design with artistic coloring that resembles a topo map. Of course, it doesn’t just look good, the handle is extremely functional too as it’s made with quality Micarta, which makes for a solid grip, even when wet. An important feature when faced with the elements outdoors. The quality continues beyond the blade and handle, with its included leather sheath with belt loop for convenient storage and an easy carry. The new OKC Hiking Knife is proudly made in the USA.
