Beyond Expectations

To be honest I only bought the G10 Strategy because it was on sale - boy was I pleasantly surprised! I would have been happy to pay full sticker for this knife. The action is impeccable, buttery smooth, snappy shut. The blade is beautiful with an interesting modern-styled swedge. Of course it arrived super sharp along with a hand-written note from the owner of the company! It doesn't get any classier than that!

Awesome EveryDay Carry Knife

I am not sure what I necessarily expected, but after my first purchase of a Solstice; I decided to give the Strategy a try, being I was after an everyday carry knife for work. I went for the Strategy in all blacked out aluminum.

I literally just drove 30 minutes home & back from work today, as soon as I received the tracking notification my knife had been delivered. Hungrily opening the box, I was pleasantly surprised in every aspect of the blade. The construction is above top notch, opening action is smooth, and the blade has a substantial amount of “heft” to it to give the impression this is a knife that can actually be used. As opposed to a knife with a great look, but is almost too pretty use. Oh, and it’s sharp!

OCASO has quickly become my favorite knife brand, and I cannot wait to see where they go.

Buy this knife. You will NOT be disappointed.

Love it.

So far I'm loving it! Not as clean for us south paws. (Black aluminum handle)

Very well built work of art. Holds a razor sharp edge. One very small issue. I wish you could select left handed on the order so the pocket clip is not installed. There where two faint wear marks left behind from the right hand mounted clip.

Thanks for your review and feedback on the marks left on the aluminum handle when you reverse the pocket clip. We'll work an improvement for this.

Love is in the air

In Tennessee I visited smoky mountain knife company, there I came across a ocoso strategy in grey carbon fiber just asking me out for a date.
Lonely was I and looking for a beautiful replacement to my standard cold steel airlite, I acquiesced and bought the little flipper. Since then she's been my steady and love taking her to task whether in the kitchen or garage. Our lives are United as one. Great job designing a natural holdiknife Mr. Wallace. Cuddos to Ocaso.

Great knife!

The Strategy is very nicely designed, a medium size knife with a nicely done blade, I bought with Jade G-10 scales and they feel great. Pocket clip is uniquely done to easily swap for left handers. The K110 blade is easy to sharpen and keep sharp. Price is great for a premium knife… one of my daily carried knives! I highly recommend Ocaso knives for the high quality and people behind the cutlery!
