Please note: Old Hickory knives are inexpensive, they can be sharpened razor sharp but do not normally come very sharp from the factory, do not expect $100.00 knife quality in fit, finish, and edge from a $10.00 knife. Also carbon steel will rust. We guarantee that they will rust or tarnish - if rust is problematic for you, then please do not order carbon steel knives.

Just about all folding knives are constructed from the same basic parts. There is the blade, of course, which is referred to as the master blade if the folding knife has more than one. And the knife’s decorative handle, or scale, is often bookended by bolsters made of a material strong enough to help support the pin that acts as a pivot point for the blade.
