Fantastic Knives For The Money
I own a number of Old Hickory Knives, and as people have said, they will rust. In addition, some of them come requiring major sharpening and reprofiling. These knives sadly while the best value in cutlery today are not for beginners. You need to know how to sharpen a knife, and you need to understand that all of the best steels will rust except those with high concentrations of Stainless. It should be noted that the USA was founded on these kinds of knives. These exact kinds of knives skinned all the Buffalo and the Steers that were used to feed the USA. However, if you will do your part, these knives will give you a lifetime of superlative service. And, as stated, with use, they will develop a Patina. You can accelerate this process if you choose to with Vinegar or Lemon Juice. Wiping it down on a paper towel with a dab of Olive Oil will keep these blades working forever as they are incredibly easy to sharpen and take on a razor edge. I've coated mine with some Tru-Oil Gunstock Oil on the handles since the handles are made of straight grain walnut, and with people constantly immersing them in water, the handles tend to dry out and crack at the cutlery pins requiring replacement slabs. By sealing them with some form of moisture reducer such as Varnish or Tung Oil or even a generous amount of Boiled Linseed Oil, you can preserve the slabs for a very long time.

Great knife for the money
Just today I found my 4" Old Hickory knife in the back of a kitchen drawer. It was still sharp and a little rusty. I used my Work Sharp belt sander sharpener to sand the wood handle which has been replaced twice now over a thirty year period. Then I used the sharpener to sand the rust off the blade and then sharpen it to scary sharpness. This blade has always amazed me how sharp it gets. In fact I have some bad memories of cutting myself with this knife because it is always sharper than my other knives. Now that I have VG 10 steel in most of my kitchen knives they should be equivalent to the Old Hickory. If you don't mind taking care of your knives and not washing them in the dishwasher, Old Hickory knives are an excellent low cost choice. This knife will probably outlast me.

Very disappointed
Used them once and they started to rust. I only opened two of them. The other two are still sitting in the package, not sure I will ever open them up. Very sad, I really try to buy USA made when ever I can even if I have to pay a little more, but this time I feel like I got took.
