Outdoor Life just came out with a new line of knives that range from modern folders to traditional pocket knives. I’ve been using the Lockback to open boxes and even butcher turkeys. Here’s a look at it and the other knives in the collection.

I’m not sure there’s a more classic pocket knife design than a clip point lockback. Outdoors people have been carrying them for years because they work. It’s the perfect blend of a robust locking mechanism and a blade shape that offers good piercing with plenty of belly. The OL version uses thumb studs for deployment and it has a pocket clip. 

The knife uses 8CR13MOV, which is the Chinese version of AUS-8. Dr. Larrin Thomas did some testing on 8CR13MOV and found that the edge retention is better than AEB-L. Its toughness is surprisingly competitive with Maganacut. Thomas rates the roughness at a 6 and Magnacut at a 7. So you’re getting an affordable and reliable knife with a classic design featuring Outdoor Life.

Classic OL Cover Knives

There are two knives that have Outdoor Life covers from 1942 printed on them. They are multi-bladed slip joints and come in a wood box with the cover printed on it too. 

Modern Folders

Flippers and even a crossbar lock can be found on the more modern knives in the OL collection. These range in price from $40 to $140 and they all wear D2 blades. 

Utility Ax

Some jobs call for an ax and others call for a saw. The Utility Axe has you covered in both cases because it’s an ax with saw in the handle. It also has a ferro rod in the ax’s sheath. 

Folding Filet Knife

If you want a filet knife to keep on the boat or in your tackle box, this folding filet knife backs down to just 6 inches. 

Stacked Leather Hunter

This knife has a 5.5-inch blade, a stacked leather handle, and a brass guard. 

Spark Multi Tool 

The Spark is a ferro rod and knife sharpener in one slim tool.
