Summary: this is the civilian version of the STB fighter Charles Ochs made for SOCCENT. It's never been used with the original edge, tool steel with the blade measuring 6" from tip to micarta scales. One piece construction with pinned black scales, the tail end lined with a thong hole. 1/4" blade stock with a non-tapering tang, overall length is a hair under 10-3/4". Excellent+++ condition overall, unused blued blade with nothing but minor handling marks.
The black belt sheath is original to the knife and has the OX stamping on the front and the USA Made 2012 stamp on the back. The sheath has not been on a belt, easily excellent+++ or better condition with just a light scuff or two.
7 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. Ox Forge fixed blade knives can be tricky to find on the secondary market, at this price this is a bargain. Perfect for everyday carry, ideal to tuck away in your collection for investment purposes. Thanks and good luck.
