    Old Hickory knives are awesome. The blades are the perfect thickness for peeling potatoes or fruits and vegetables. They are the easiest blades to sharpen and last for years. I have one that's been in use for 38 years. I don't recommend putting them in the dishwasher because of the wooden handles. I like them all but couldn't function in the kitchen without their 4" paring knife.

    Vel has it pegged... Good full tang 1095 carbon steel stamped knives at very reasonable prices.

    What would you use it for?
    It appears to be double edged with no quillion or guard?

    They are good quality steel. Great for modding, and rehandling. I see at least one boot knife in the works. Another will likely get serrated on one edge for a utility knife. Dual purpose and great for cutting strapping, and cordage.
