Ontario Knife Company is an American knife manufacturer originally from Ontario County, New York. The company was founded in 1889, making it one of the oldest American knife companies still in existence.

The company is probably best known for their line of military knives, and hard use outdoor fixed blade patterns. Ironically, I’ve mostly reviewed their folding knives, but I have the pleasure of owning one of their machetes, which is beastly.
