|Veteran Knife Designer Bob Dozier and OKC Release New Everyday Carry Lock-back Folder
Ontario Knife Company (OKC) proudly continues its partnership with famed knife maker Bob Dozier into 2017 with the introduction of the OKC Dozier Strike Lock-back Folder, the ideal carry knife for daily use.
What makes an ideal everyday carry knife? It should be slim, durable and just the right size to handle any task you need it to tackle. That sums up the OKC Dozier Strike perfectly. The OKC Dozier Strike features a 3.13-inch (7.95cm) AUS-8 stainless steel blade with a 56-58 HRC hardness rating. The drop-point blade is perfectly beveled to keep its edge and remain sharp. It features a thumb stud to assist with easy opening and a solid lock-back that keeps the blade secure. When opened, the OKC Dozier Strike’s overall length is 7.25-inches (18.42cm) long.
The OKC Dozier Strike’s handle is thin for easy pocket carry. It’s constructed from premium G-10, a fiberglass-epoxy resin laminate that is extremely durable. It is impervious to moisture and provides some insulation from electrical discharge, making it a great material for building a tough-as-nails everyday carry knife. Whether you’re hunting, in a survival situation or just need a superior quality knife for every-day use, the OKC Dozier Strike is the perfect choice.
Dozier started his professional career as an ironworker. In the early 1960s, he started designing high-quality, functional knives, building a solid reputation for his work. A key element to a Dozier knife is that the blades must hold an edge during any situation. These Dozier-designed OKC knives meet that requirement and more. The OKC Dozier Strike is designed in the US and manufactured in Taiwan with an MSRP of $75.
