Okapi is a pocket knife and hand-tools manufacturing company based on the North-East coast of South Africa. The Okapi knife is a working knife designed to be highly robust, practical and equally affordable all the while remaining faithful to its rich 112-year-old heritage. 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.
Truly the leader of the pack, the Okapi Locking folder (KO9070) is renowned with its crescent moons and three star inlays and ring. The distinct ratchetting sound when opening and closing is as much its trademark as its signature look. So notorious is this knife, that it has found its way in songs found in Reggae music. The 3 ¾” 1055 carbon steel blade features a unique drop point shape. The Okapi Locking Folder secured its place in knife history not only as a great EDC knife but as a bad boy blade. Also available in a black plastic handle version (KO9071).
