Superb American hand craftsmanship, the finest high carbon steel and genuine hickory wood are the ingredients for the OLD HICKORY line of knives. Over 20 hand operations are performed to produce an OLD HICKORY KNIFE, the fastest selling line of carbon steel knives on the market. Blades are tempered and hand ground to retain sharpness. Hickory handles are flame burnt and buffed for a unique antiqued finish.
First introduced in 1924, the Old Hickory knives are the most venerable product line still in active production. The Old Hickory knives feature a hardwood handle secured with brass compression rivets to 1095 carbon steel blades that are both very sharp and capable of retaining an edge better than most stainless knives. Proudly manufactured with artisan processes for over 90 years, Old Hickory has stood the test of time and is proven to be the best carbon steel kitchen cutlery sold today.
* Please note this knife features a high carbon steel blade, high carbon steel is not stainless. It can rust- please make sure to clean your high carbon steel blade by hand washing and drying. Coat the blade with mineral oil and store in a dry place to keep it from rusting/ staining.
