Built to be ambidextrous, the Oxcart features a reversible pocket clip for right or left-handed carry. When it’s time to go to work, the Assisted Opening mechanism propels the blade into position in the blink of an eye, where it’s then held in place by a sturdy frame lock. When opening and closing, the action is extra smooth thanks to IKBS™ bearings.
The blade is easy to sharpen and takes an edge incredibly well thanks to Japanese AUS-8 steel, which is strong and exceptionally resilient to rust. Weighing in at under 5 ounces, the Oxcart combines that strength with an impressively lightweight build to fit the needs of a true everyday carry folding knife.
When you come from a long line of knife makers, it’s hard not to have it rub off on you. For Robert, this happened at an early age. Since childhood, he’s always been fascinated with aircraft and lines that have a speed-of-sound look to them. Taking traditional cues from his father, Joe Pardue, and grandfather, Mel Pardue, he creates knives that have a progressive design such as the Jettison™. Robert has definitely earned his design stripes in the family. But that doesn’t mean anyone’s backing away from the shop’s machine for him anytime soon.
