Ontario Knife Company has a long-standing reputation for knives built for extreme conditions. For over 130 years, the company has blended classic design with extreme quality, all of which have been poured into the Shikra Folder. This lightweight, functional knife will prove to be a blade you will carry everywhere.
Getting straight to the point of the OKC Shikra Folder, the 3.2-inch stainless steel blade has a 55-57 HRC rating with a beveled taper to a very fine tip. This makes for a highly versatile knife with a slotted spine by the grip for delicate work when opened to its full 7.4-inch length. The handle is linen Micarta on one side and full titanium on the other. This reduced the weight while providing excellent grip, even in wet conditions. A belt clip helps secure the knife in your possession when not in use.
"The Shikra blade design is well known for being highly versatile and we set out to make a highly functional, and lightweight folder that our customers would want to carry every day," said Kenneth Trbovich, President, and CEO of Ontario Knife Company. “The fine point blade is incredibly strong, yet subtle for delicate work, making it a great knife for everyday use, as well as self-defense. The combination of linen Micarta and titanium for the handle makes it light in weight with a secure feeling in the hand – just what we wanted in a folder we'd carry all the time."
