Franklinville, NY --( Every year Field & Stream expert field testers evaluate hundreds of the best new outdoor products in several categories, narrowing down the list to the equipment that stands apart as the “Best of the Best.

For the second time in the past four years, an Ontario Knife Company product has been selected for this great distinction, with the Bushcraft Field Knife ( )  designed by OKC’s Blademaster-in-Residence Dan Maragni chosen for 2014’s survival knife category.

“Our staff spent the better part of the past year finding and testing the gear that will make readers’ time in the woods more productive and more fun,” says Slaton White, Deputy Editor of Field & Stream.

“The winning products not only withstood our tough testing, but they stood head and shoulders above the rest displaying absolute excellence in their field. The Best of the Best is the highest honor Field & Stream bestows on gear and the winning products are the best of the year; worth your time, worth your money.”

“Ontario Knife is honored to receive Field & Stream’s ‘Best of the Best’ award for the 2014 class,” said President and CEO Kenneth D. Trbovich. “The Bushcraft Field Knife is an outstanding mix of our traditional American craftsmanship and value-added product features, all at a great price with an MSRP of $139.95.”

Featuring a five-inch (10.12 inch overall) full-tang 5160 carbon steel blade and ergonomic American walnut handle, the Made-in-USA Bushcraft Field Knife boasts a ruggedly simplistic design that is clearly built for work. The high off-center point, flat-ground blade, and long cutting surface allows for greater fine-woodcarving and meat cutting ability. Designed as a bushcraft and survival system, the knife comes with a fire-starter and striker, over 20 feet of paracord, and a durable nylon sheath by renowned holster manufacturer DeSantis.

Dan Maragni designed the Bushcraft Field Knife as the first of a new series of classic bushcraft knives and tools. In addition to serving as a manufacturing consultant at OKC, Maragni has also designed several other products including the acclaimed SPEC PLUS GEN II series.

“I’ve been a student of the art of knife making for over 40 years,” said Maragni. “Blade design has been my life’s work and my passion; I view my designs as my children and they are my legacy. I am very proud of the Bushcraft Field Knife and greatly honored by this recognition.”

The award-winning Bushcraft Field Knife is available for purchase at dealers across the USA and in over 30 countries including Canada, Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. It is also available for US customers to purchase at
