Fox Knives Olive Drab Core Review: The Durable and Versatile Knife for Any Situation


Awesome looks and just a great performance.


We recently purchased a Baby Core the smaller version of the Fox Knives Core and fell in love with it.  The knife was perfect for EDC around our warehouse.  A great knife for random working knife tasks including; opening packages, trimming random things, and cutting tape.  The easy flip tab design was great to get quick repeatable access to the knife.  The liner lock is safe and effective for our needs.  The Core features a larger platform and can make a great field knife and our outdoorsman carry.  It feature the same things we enjoyed from the mini core, but this one fits into the hand completely and easily handled.  The gray Kryptex type pattern on the side was a great addition and added to its aesthetic.  The black Cerakoted blades are not only protective, but look great as well.  It features great N690 steel that is higher end utility steel vs the common 440HC we see in the market.  The polished and razor sharp blade is unmistakable.  Clean work and easy cuts each time.  Also easy to sharpen/ hone when needed.


Use Case:

- Some Shop use

- Box opening

- Cut Zip Ties

- General use

- Great for a field or survival knife

- Medium - Full Size users


Notes from the Designer:

“The Core is a stout folder, light for its size and with a broad blade for hard work. It is designed to be your go-to folder for getting work done in your shop, in the outdoors or even out hunting. The flipper makes fast deployment easy and at the same time you have the option of using the opening hole when wearing thick gloves or in situations where you need to keep a solid grip on your knife while opening it.”

Overall Thoughts:

Overall this is a great knife.  For our main purpose we are sticking with our Baby Core due to the size.  This Core is a great knife for anyone looking for a full sized rugged work knife.  We highly recommend it.  The color way with the Olive Drab and Black Cerakoted blade spoke to. us with our branding.  It was a perfect fit with our Olive Drab Shear lines and thus has made a great collaborative giveaway gift on our ONE SHEAR instagram page.  The colors makes it great for any foliage environment and the kryptex pattern has been complimented daily.  We are glad this knife will have a new home and make someone's day.  From the ONE SHEAR and Fox Knives family we thank you for all the support and dedication to your craft!
