Knives Illustrated - - Points Of Interest -

In Au­gust 1902, the com­pany was in­cor­po­rated with the name On­tario Knife Com­pany (OKC) and moved to Franklinville, NY. OKC merged with Em­pire State Cut­lery in 1905. In the pe­riod 1912-1914, the com­pany built a new fac­tory, and it is still in use. The Old Hick­ory cut­lery line was in­tro­duced in 1923. Over the years, OKC has pro­duced many knives for mil­i­tary forces in­clud­ing the M7 and M9 bay­o­nets, the USAF Sur­vival Knife, and the USMC OKC-3S bay­o­net. The On­tario Knife Com­pany was started in 1889 in Naples, On­tario County, NY. In the early days, grind­ing op­er­a­tions made use of wa­ter power. Later, the fac­tory was moved to Cadiz, NY to the site pre­vi­ously oc­cu­pied by a saw mill.
