    This video shows the new bolt knife/utility knife.



    I like the small kukri in the Alpha series.

    Some folks might like the fact they made the butcher knife shorter in a "Hunter" model and it comes with a leather sheath too.

    The old hick was the only one even slightly interesting.
    Kukri would have a chance with a different handle, the current one is more hideous than the Terävä rubber clump.

    That new bolt knife, IDK, perhaps it'd perform well but it just looks.... wrong.

    $60?

    I think I'm gonna get that sheeps foot... It's less expensive than my Gossman so if it preforms it can go on right of way duty so if lost I'm only out $60 not my precious. I'd be interested in the Kukri, but that handle material is kinda funky... might give it a try anyway.... but seriously WHY THE EFFING BLACK HANDLE MATERIAL GET EFFING CREATIVE AND GIVE ME COLOR OPTIONS... safety blue, orange, red, SOMETHING.

    That Journeyman... weird.
    The Old Hickory hunting knife is pretty exciting.

    The OKC webpage doesn’t show or mention any of the products in the video! Don’t they want my money!!!
    Any idea when they are due to be released? Had to turn down the sound!

    Their website is horrible with updates. You'll see what you want at some online retailer before they will have it on their site.

    Flipper looks like it would bs a safe and handy neck knife.
    The old hickory looks like it would be handy but I'd like either a small guard or a more guard like contoured handle. I think you could put a new kephart like handle on and be gtg. I wonder wow soft they temper it?

    I like the Kukri. It would be pretty handy as a belt knife. The recurve on knives usually whittles really well and you could use it as a draw knife. I bet it would be decent in a pinch for skinning.

    I’m awaiting a couple OKC blades now. Would have been delivered Wednesday but the cold snap canceled postal delivery for a couple days.

    I like the Old Hickory outdoor knife. Will probably pick one up eventually.

    Interesting link, thanks for posting.

    Always been a fan of the wharncliffe style, so I'm really liking the bolt knife. Not sure about those saw teeth though... they look like the typical useless profile although I could be wrong.
    The kukri gets a "meh" from me. There's too many other reasonably priced options out there for me to consider a plastic handled model.
    The Old Hickory is a great idea for them. Should sell well.
    (Feel obliged to add that for less than $20 and an hour in the shop you can have the same thing if you're so inclined, although the sheath looks decent.)

    A lot of positive responses to the Old Hickory hunting knife. I've used their 7" butcher knife for years. It's never left behind when camping. Very similar, just an inch and a half longer. Would be pretty easy to cut down. I'm leaving it the way it is...useful tool in camp and in the home.

    Worth noting that the guy only referred to them as "serrations". That term covers a lot of ground, LOL!

    I'm only interested in the 5.5 inch butcher knife and sheath. At $30 that's a real winner assuming the sheath is somewhat decent.

    The bolt knife is RIDICULOUS......... downright ghastly. They could have taken the original and made some mods to it and sold a boatload.

    I couldnt be more disappointed with what the knife companies are coming out with in 2019. So far not ones made something worth spitting at. And considering most things arent even made in the US you may as well just stop buying them and kit the consignment shop. I miss the 2005's of great products. How is your best looking product a bloody kitchen knife?

    Would be great if they glued those scales in the Old Hickory. Their propensity to fall off after batoning kind if makes them hard to trust until you add your own. I like the blade length /style they chose though. Good looking sheath.

    The Old Hickory looks nice and for some reason I can't explain, I'm drawn to that sheep's foot bolt knife. I'd rather have a different handle, sans bolt, but I like the blade.
