Legend says that the Baer brothers of Imperial Schrade wanted to offer a knife that their grand-dad would carry. So, in 1959, the first line of Old Timer knives was officially put into production.

Despite its long history with highs and lows, the Old Timer brand continues to exist today by encompassing the spirit and dependability of the knives of old.

The latest Badass Knife of the Week is the perfect example.

The Old Timer 158OT Guthook Hunting Knife features a 3.5-inch guthook blade you can use to effortlessly process hide and body cavities on-the-spot, keeping meat clean and hairless and impressing a mark of craft on your work. Made from stainless steel, the blade is easy to sharpen and resists all types of stains and corrosion when used in wet situations.

The full tang of the blade extends down into the brown sawcut Delrin handles that boast the Old Timer inlay shield and brass rivets to keep the scales together. Each scale is grippy enough to be used when the hands are soaking wet and help embody the spirit of the past thanks to its classic looks.

Coming in at an overall length of 7.5 inches, the Old Timer fits comfortably in the handsome full-grain leather sheath that can be attached to your belt.

A ready companion for sensational hunting, the Old Timer is one of the best hunting tools, period — especially at a price that’s near impossible to beat.
