Okapi is a pocket knife and hand-tool manufacturing company based on the North-East coast of South Africa. Supplying Africa with affordable, highly durable and functional knives and agricultural tools for 112 years has been no small task but accomplished with much success. With such a wide range of environments and conditions to factor, from the arid savannahs to the thick, tropical jungles, Okapi products can be found taming the wild in all of them. From forestry and fire control implements to machetes to sugar cane knives, Okapi covers the gamut to be a one stop shop for all needs.
The traditional latin Bolo originates in the Carribbean, where it's popularity is unsurpassed for clearing paths in the jungle and/or harvesting food in the field. Okapi's take on the latin bolo style stays true to it's traditional roots with a tough 15 1/2" carbon steel blade and a full tang for strength. The contoured wood grip slabs are sized generously for large gloved hands and provide a sure grip in any position.
