OVB is an acronym for "Our Very Best". These knives were elegant designs crafted of the finest materials available at the time. In addition, the best craftsmen the factory had under its roof were picked to build them. For 2002 we are resurrecting this grand old brand of knives. This time we have selected Master Bladesmith Jerry Fisk one of the worlds finest custom makers for the design and testing of the first OVB product in over sixty years, The Fisk Presentation Bowie. This knife starts out as a billet of our premium 0170-6C Carbon steel and is mated to a hand-selected stabilized amber fiddleback maple handle.
