The growing interest for bushcraft and outdoor activities has inspired Hultafors to expand its range of Craftsman’s knives with two Outdoor knives, the OK1 and OK4. The two knives have been developed in close dialogue with bushcraft users and are made to be used in the wilderness.

New knives Developed for bushcraft enthusiasts

The modernity of hi-tech society has sparked a growing interest for off-line, screen-free activities in the great outdoors.

- We are now proud to present two dedicated Outdoor-knives developed in close dialogue with bushcraft-enthusiasts, says Nikita Golovlev, Head of Design at Hultafors Group.

Japanese steel with Scandi grind for longlasting sharpness

The two Outdoor knifes from Hultafors, the OK 1 and OK 4, both come in 3 mm thick Japanese knife steel with a Scandi grind for longlasting sharpness. A black EPD-coating protects the blade from rust, and the grinded spine of the blade is designed for starting a fire with a fire starter. The long tang makes the knives suitable for batoning.

- We hope that outdoor-fans will find our new knives great tools to be brought along when heading out in the wild, says Nikita Golovlev.
