Ontario Knife Company (OKC) has announces the newest addition to its award-winning Black Bird series, the new Black Bird S35VN. The new Black Bird fixed blade employs the same simplistic, yet functional design and blade geometry as its predecessors, with newly added S35VN blade steel and additional tactical-ready features that deliver the enhanced quality and performance needed to tackle the toughest cutting tasks outdoors.

OKC Black Bird Is Simple And Rugged

“Our Black Bird series was never meant to be flashy or overcomplicated. In fact, the beauty of the Black Bird is in its simplicity and pure functionality whether you’re bushcrafting, camping, hunting or hiking,” said David Fenske, V.P. of Sale & Marketing at OKC. “We’ve leveled-up the world class survival knife by upgrading the blade steel to tough-as-nails S35VN; continued with the Micarta handle material for a secure grip while adding a more tactical look with black scales; plus, the included sheath is now Nylon and MOLLE compatible. The new Blackbird S35VN will be the knife you need, when you need a knife outdoors.”

The new Black Bird S35VN is designed to incorporate only the most vital survival essentials. The knife features a 5-inch, S35VN blade with 58-60HRC hardness and a satin finish. S35VN is an extremely tough, high-quality steel which provides superior resistance to wear and chipping while delivering excellent, long-lasting edge retention. Featuring 10-inches of overall length, this fixed blade is both robust and versatile enough to take on the challenges of any task outdoors from survival to bushcrafting to hunting and more. The Black Bird S35VN also features a tactical-black Micarta handle for a comfortable, secure grip even when wet.
