As far back as I can recall, I have always wanted THAT knife. You know, the knife that functions in any way you can think of, made of good, high quality materials, especially steel, and yet remain non-flashy, very simple, and still be really proud of it. I believe I found it in this knife. It has all the qualities I searched for in a knife and even a few more. The sheath is multifunctional in that there are numerous ways to attach it, even upside-down with the main clasps undone. The handle is better than just about every knife I own, the blade, extremely durable and sharp right out of the box. And one of my favorite things about this knife is also one of the most obvious, the whole knife and sheath together is 11.75 inches long with the blade itself being just less than 5.5 inches, this knife is perfect for everyday use. Of course, in this day in age, if anyone saw it in a non-combat or wilderness setting, they would probably arrest you for it. Not to mention the tough kydex sheath...
Pure awesomeness with a handle. Doc was trapped back in 1885. I received a letter from him telling me not to go back but later found a tombstone. You've seen the documentary you know how this goes. One part they didn't go into was although he didn't want me to visit he did request a knife be sent. But not just any knife. He needed pure awesomeness in a handle. How I was going to ship him the knife he didn't say. FedEx doesn't exactly go backwards. So I jumped in the car to bring him this bad boy and some keystone light. Of course I get an arrow in the gas tank end up meeting relatives, help Doc avoid permanent retirement and met ZZ Top too. All in all a successful weekend. He didn't tell me why he needed the knife or his plans for it, I think he just missed me. We've been through some stuff over the centuries.
took this knife out camping. It was good as a light duty chopper. What this knife really excels at it slicing and cutting. I was able to make feather sticks with ease and prepare meals with it as well. Too bad Ka Bar discontinued this little gem. I also own it's big brother the Heavy Duty Warthog, which Ka Bar still makes. I would definitely recommend this knife.
