The Hultafors OK1 Outdoor Knife is a rock-solid fixed knife. It looks like the Heavy Duty knife but is optimized for outdoor use. A black coating protects the carbon steel blade from rust. The spine of the blade is sharpened to make sure using a firesteel is a piece of cake. The side of the blade is enhanced with a five cm long ruler. The Hultafors OK1 is a great, budget-friendly option for bushcraft, survival and other outdoor hobbies.
The blade is made from Japanese carbon steel. A solid type of steel you can easily sharpen yourself. Not stainless, so be careful around moisture and acids. The handle is made from polypropylene. This is a sustainable plastic you can enjoy for years to come.
You can carry it with you in the included sheath. It has enough room for belts up to 4 cm wide. You can also hang it from a button on your overalls. For it you release the belt loop, push the button in place and secure it. Very practical! This edition, however, is also enhanced with a luxurious carrier system. A plastic belt loop you can store a belt of up to 8 cm wide. The side is also enhanced with an elastic loop. This loop has enough room for a firesteel. As such you will always have everything you need. You can also remove the plastic belt loop if need be.

Very strong and solid knife. Can cut out of the box but ideally needs honing, which I am reluctant to do because of the black powder coating...but it’s going to need sharpening at some point. Amazing quality and value for money. Feels very comfortable in the hand and seems indestructible. The sheath is functional and well designed. The extra fire steel loop is a nice bonus. I really don’t know how they sell all this for such a bargain price.
