History of Ocaso Knives
Ocaso was founded by Ric Valdez. Valdez is the former Executive Vice President of Cold Steel, with over 20 years of experience in the knife industry. During his years in the industry, Valdez collected knives and gentleman's accessories. After Cold Steel was sold to GSM Outdoors in 2020, Ric started his own business and launched Ocaso Knives. His goal? Creating pocket knives and gentleman's everyday carry accessories that reflect his personal style - refined, modern, minimalist and made of high-quality materials. Ocaso was thus born from Valdez' motto: 'The knife you choose to carry every day, defines the essence of who you are and what you believe in'.
