Stout Gear Knives just introduced the Oxe V2. The original Oxe sported a slightly recurve blade and filled the large camp knife niche in their line. The new Oxe V2 still works as a large camp knife but it’s chopping credentials have been beefed up with a more radical recurve blade and new flatter grind geometry.
The new blade is not only more radically recurved at the cutting edge but it also has a recurved spine. The new shape looks great and puts the point more forward in the chopping stroke almost like a kukri. The blade is ground from 1/4″ thick S35VN steel, 10.5″ long, and is nearly 2″ tall from edge to spine so it confirms to most chopping competition regulations. Like nearly all Stout Gear Knives, the Oxe 2.0 has a large contoured handle with an integral guard.
The sheaths that Stout Gear includes with their knives are excellent. They use a unique construction method that features a welt like you find in a leather sheath. The outer parts of the sheath are molded kydex and the welt is fitted HDPE.
