When he’s not creating, Eric Ochs likes to take in the views of his Oregon backyard from over 8,000’. He’s climbed a handful of PNW volcanic peaks and channeled the power of perseverance from these missions into his hardworking designs.
The proof is in the prominent flipper opening and the fast, smooth IKBS™ that uses lubed ball bearings in the pivot to deploy the blade at lightning speed. It’s also built with a thumb hole for a more deliberate, manual open. Once the high-carbon, stainless steel modified sheepsfoot blade is deployed, the locking liner adds a solid layer of safety. The G10 handle keeps it solid in the hand even when muddy or wet.
Tactical utility and frontcountry style converge to create the Avant™-Tac.
Eric Ochs grew up with the Oregon backwoods constantly knocking at his door. In a way, his fate was sealed when his father gifted him his first knife when he was just six years old. Since then, he’s hard pressed to remember a day without one in his pocket. This self-taught talent is still inspired to this day by the pursuit of adventure in the Pacific Northwest’s rugged terrain from the top of the North Cascades to the lazy, meandering rivers at their feet.
