Defense OKC Carter Prime Incoming April 13, 2016 Join the Conversation Ontario Knife Company recently announced the release of the OKC Carter Prime. Another custom OKC blade, this one is designed by Robert Carter. Here’s what they tell us about it the OKC Carter Prime. The Carter Prime features a distinctive but functional look, lightning fast opening action, robust design, and high end materials. Overbuilt by OKC, this folding knife is tough and uncompromising. The OKC Carter Prime is the latest knife to come from the Pardue knife making dynasty, as OKC’s newest designer Robert Carter is the son of OKC blade-master Joe Pardue and the grandson of legendary designer Mel Pardue. The OKC Carter Prime, with its innovative look and superior performance, is a testament to that great legacy. OKC is proud to be a part of its next chapter. Featuring a thick D2 tool steel blade, the sheepsfoot knife offers inherent toughness and wear resistance. Elevated chromium levels in the D2 blade provides for superior corrosion and stain resistance compared to other tool steels. Designed as a heavy duty utility knife, the dark stonewashed finish provides a tough and rugged look while creating value for the tactically minded user by ensuring the Carter Prime will not cast an unwanted reflection. Adding a truly premium element to the OKC Carter Prime is its titanium handle. Titanium has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element while offering excellent corrosion resistance—especially in seawater environments. This means with the Carter Prime, you will have the toughest, most dependable handle possible and an unbelievably lightweight knife. The OKC Carter Prime opens to a stout 7.95 inches (20.19 cm) overall with the blade accounting for 3.37 inches (8.56 cm). The OKC Carter Prime has an MSRP of $144.95, is made in Taiwan and designed and distributed in the USA. The Ontario Knife Company was founded in 1889 and operates out of New York. From their description: OKC produces a wide range of tools, including cutlery and kitchenware, hunting and fishing knives, machetes, survival and rescue equipment, science and medical tools, and tactical knives. OKC has a long tradition of building knives and tools for the U.S. military, producing high quality equipment that has seen continuous service since WWII.
