Easy to Carry on Belt or in Pack

Weighing a mere five ounces, the new OKC Hiking Knife is a lightweight fixed blade knife that won’t weigh you down or let you down. In fact, its slim profile makes it perfect for tossing in your pack or wearing on your belt so you can tackle even the toughest terrain without the extra weight. Not only is it easy to carry, the OKC Hiking Knife has an overall length of 8.2-inches with a full-tang, 3.4-inch drop-point blade made from quality 420HC stainless steel for impressive cutting precision.

OKC Hiking Knife has Unique Handle

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. That’s 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. It has a suggested retail price of $89.95.
