Default sed and hex

I'm using OpenBSD 4.3. I'd like to be able to insert an arbitrary hexcode into a text file. For example, I'd like to hyphenate the word "gratefull" using sed so that "gratefull" becomes "grate-full". I've tried
sed 's/gratefull/grate\x2dfull/' document.txt
to no avail. I know I could use Ctrl-v, but I'd really like to be able to insert any hex value into my text file using the backslash construct. I'm sure you can do this with GNU sed, but as I've stated, I'm using OpenBSD. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
