Hultafors Outdoor Knife OK4

A Red Dot Award is one of the most prestigious honors that can be bestowed upon any given product. And a lot of these awards are given to high-concept tech, housewares, and style pieces. In fact, it’s almost unheard of for something like, say, a fixed-blade knife to win one. But the Hultafors Outdoor Knife OK4 did.

This survival-focused 8.23″ knife features a Japanese carbon steel blade treated with a electrophoretic coating to prevent rust. And it’s mated to a super-durable PP plastic friction-gripped handle. But what really makes it special is that it features a ground spine for use with a fire starter, a useful scale engraved on the blade, and it is supremely easy to sharpen back to a razor edge whenever it gets a bit too dull. The brand isn’t offering it for online sale, but you can consult their website to find it in a brick and mortar retailer near you.
