Ontario Knife Company continues partnership with Bob Dozier with new EDC folder

Dozier Strike Knife. Designed by Bob Dozier, manufactured by OKC.

I like it when larger production companies partner with established custom makers. It allows the public the opportunity to purchase a knife with the makers’ pedigree, but at a price that is accessible to the everyday consumer.

Arkansas knifemaker Bob Dozier has previously worked with OKC, on the Dozier Arrow SP – a spear-point folder. Their new knife is also a folder, a nice looking EDC drop-point, called the Dozier Strike Knife.

From AmericanShootingJournal.com:

Ontario Knife Company (OKC) proudly continues its partnership with famed knife maker Bob Dozier into 2017 with the introduction of the OKC Dozier Strike Lock-back Folder, the ideal carry knife for daily use.

What makes an ideal everyday carry knife? It should be slim, durable and just the right size to handle any task you need it to tackle. That sums up the OKC Dozier Strike perfectly. The OKC Dozier Strike features a 3.13-inch (7.95cm) AUS-8 stainless steel blade with a 56-58 HRC hardness rating. The drop-point blade is perfectly beveled to keep its edge and remain sharp. It features a thumb stud to assist with easy opening and a solid lock-back that keeps the blade secure. When opened, the OKC Dozier Strike’s overall length is 7.25-inches (18.42cm) long.

Dozier started his professional career as an ironworker. In the early 1960s, he started designing high-quality, functional knives, building a solid reputation for his work. A key element to a Dozier knife is that the blades must hold an edge during any situation. These Dozier-designed OKC knives meet that requirement and more. The OKC Dozier Strike is designed in the US and manufactured in Taiwan with an MSRP of $75.

    Looks good, but I don’t like thumb studs; they don’t work for me.

    Taiwan? Really?
    I look to OKC for American knives. If I want a Taiwanese knife, I’ll look elsewhere.
