Ontario Knife Company (OKC) announced a new folding knife called the Cerberus Folder. According to the company, this knife is suited for a range of duties: from every day carry (EDC) to hunting to tactical uses.
OKC uses D2 tool steel for the blade. D2 is considered a high chromium steel, and depending on the care taken during the manufacturing and heat treating process, can make for a good knife blade. OKC uses a blade that is 3.75″ long and 0.130″ thick. It has a spear tip and plain edge.
The top of the blade has pronounced jimping for the thumb. An ambidextrous thumb stud allows for easy opening with either hand. The blade has a satin finish.
The handle is made of titanium and has jimping along the rear where the last few fingers would hold it. The pocket clip is reversible.
The Cerberus Folder is backed by a lifetime warranty. It has a suggested retail price of $164.95.
Currently, the company has a fixed blade knife called the Cerberus. This knife is substantially different than the folder. In addition to it being a full tang knife, it has a G10 handle, black oxide coating and a 4.8″ long blade.
Two additional differences are the location of manufacture and the price. The folder is made in Taiwan while the fixed blade knife is made in the USA. This is reflected in the price difference: the fixed blade knife will cost you $100 more.
