Whether an Okapi knife is needed for everyday tasks or to clean wild game, the 1055 high carbon steel blades are up to the challenge from one end the continent to the other. The stabilized cherry handle, stainless steel stirrup and back-strap, and sloping shape give the Okapi knives their distinctive look, recognizable by collectors around the world. The Okapi Biltong Knife embodies that blend between knife and useful field tool.
