Old Hickory Carbon Steel Blade Care:

Please note that Old Hickory knives are made with carbon steel, not stainless steel.  Ontario Knife Company has been making Old Hickory knives since the early 1900’s.  Carbon steel knives require extra care to prevent rusting and oxidation of the surface.  Old Hickory knives should not be placed in a dishwasher or allowed to soak in a sink.  After use we recommend cleaning the blade with a damp sponge or cloth and dry thoroughly.  Some people go a step further and apply a light coating of vegetable oil to the blade’s surface. If your blade shows signs of rust, use some steel wool to remove it and then apply some oil to the blade.   To keep the blade razor sharp, use a honing, or sharpening, steel. After years of use, the steel blade will develop a patina, a darkening which is desirable and an indication of its age.  Old Hickory knives are durable and affordable, though do require some special care.
