n. pronounced OkayP. A native african mammal that is a cousin to the giraffe but has a much shorter neck and is alot more gangsta than old wack-ass giraffes. Better known as the unofficial mascot to the wider Okayplayer collective.
After adopting an okapi from the animal shelter, Mrs. Whitebread accepted that she would have to rent a bigger apartment.

The Okapi is a lockback or slipjoint knife originally produced in 1902 for export to Germany's colonies in Africa. The knife takes its name from the giraffe-like central African okapi. Okapi knives are mainly used by working-class people due to being very affordable and, while crude in appearance, are robust knives. Okapi knives are very popular in Southern Africa, but have a rather nefarious reputation as they are associated with criminals and street gangs. Due to the use of Okapis by criminals they have been nicknamed "the Saturday night special" of knives.
