Old Timer 24OT Splinter Carvin’ 6in Traditional Folding Review [UPDATED]

The Old Timer 24OT Splinter Carvin’ 6in Traditional Folding has been around for a while now. For some children, this will have been the first knife that they owned. I have always liked the multi-tool nature of this folding knife. This makes it incredibly versatile. If you are considering purchasing it, this article will cover what you can expect.

The Looks

If you are a handy person or like the big outdoors, this is a must-have in your pocket. This kind of product will bring back the tradition of handing down belongings in your family for generations. Though traditionally made for men, the new design looks and feels simple enough to suit those outgoing handywomen. It feels good in the hand with a great grip. Weighs just around 120 grams with a length of 6 inches, a width of 1.18 inches, and a height of 1.02 inches, making it suitable for most hands since it only comes in one size.

Blades

The blades are made of high-quality, reliable 65Mn high carbon steel, which will resist corrosion to a great deal, so you can worry less while crossing those flooded rivers. It also includes nail pulls, straight gouge, hook blade, v-scorp, gouge scorp, and chisel making it ideal for carving and whittling since they are also made from solid high carbon steel. The blades pop out from both ends of the tool, with a groove on each for easy access.

Durability

The folding knife is produced by the well-reputed Old Timer company, which has been in business since 1958, getting better with time. As mentioned above, the blades are made from high-quality carbon steel, which is strong and resists corrosion. The reliable blade also has a saw-cut handle. A limited lifetime warranty covers the product, but this need not be cause for concern as it is durable. I have failed to impose any structural damage on it while I have been using it, putting it under a series of tests.

Pros 

  • Lightweight 
  • Comfortable in the hand 
  • It comes in a variety of colors 
  • Variety of uses 
  • Very durable 
  • Resists corrosion

Cons

  • It comes in one size 

Dependability

This is an everyday tool that must not reside in the tools box but your pocket. Quick and easy access with the convenient size that makes opening and accessing each piece very easy, it is also secure, giving you the confidence that the blade will not slip with the security of the heat-treated back spring. 

Accessories

While no accessories come with this knife, depending on your line of work, it can work with pretty much anything you can find in your tools box. I always use it with the hammer very often as it does a great job of removing nails.

Who is this product ideal for?

I could make an endless list if I were to list all the uses of this folding knife; the uses range from removing nails to cutting wires and everything in-between. It all depends on the individual. This is a must-have for ranchers, landowners, tradespeople, hunters, carpenters, campers, outdoors people, and everyone.

Our Verdict on the Old Timer 24OT

I would give the Old Timer 24OT 4 stars out of 5, with the only shortfall being that it only comes in one size. I recommend the Old Timer 24OT Splinter Carvin’ 6in Traditional Folding Whittling Knife to all handymen.
