Franklinville, NY –-(Ammoland.com)- The Ontario Knife Company — a leading provider of cutting-edge knives and high-performance American-made cutlery for the U.S. military and Armed Forces since WWI, has upgraded its offerings with the introduction of the Rhoen I, Rhoen II and Keiler IV knives.

These will be displayed at the IWA & Outdoor Classics Show in Nürnberg, Germany (Helmut Hofmann booth: Hall 4, 4-08, 4-10) www.iwa.info/de/default.ashx.

Ontario Knife Company specifically teamed with Helmut Hofmann — long-time international distributor of some of the largest brands in the industry — and former military veteran Justin Gingrich to build these innovative knives.

The Rhoen I measures 8.965 inches overall with 3.75 inches of cutting edge. The canvas Micarta handle provides a sure grip in any weather condition or circumstance, especially when outdoors, where rain, blood, mud and sand can all become impediments to a secure grasp. The Rhoen II is bigger and heavier than its little brother, boasting a full 10.5 inches in length. Both Rhoen models are crafted with 154 CM steel blades, sport a stealthy satin finish and are hardened to an ultra-desirable Rc 53-55 for easy sharpening in the field. The orange-and-green handles are constructed using canvas Micarta and secured with nickel-silver rivets. Setting apart these models from knives of the past are the glow inserts in each handle, making it a snap to locate a misplaced or dropped knife in the dark or when fishing through your pack. The Rhoen II was also designed with a slot in the pommel, ideal for attaching a tether or for use in lashing the knife to another object.

Fans of The Ontario Knife Company’s Afghan model are sure to become quick devotees of the Keiler IV. The Keiler IV tapes out just under 10 inches and uses a nearly identical handle as the Rhoen models, including the glow insert, but it follows a black-and-orange color scheme. The Keiler IV is all business. When it comes to cutting, the Keiler IV offers 4.3 inches of finely sharpened 154CM steel with serrations on the backbone, which allow your thumb a solid purchase during fine cutting or skinning operations.

“These lightweight hunting blades look as good as they are tough,” said Justin Gingrich, designer of the Ontario Knife Ranger series. “Each one is crafted from high-end materials ensuring incredible form and function in the field.”
