Description

Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company. He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was "k a bar". The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.

Part of the most well-received family of folding knives introduced by KA-BAR in several years, this knife is not only a practical, but affordably priced lockback designed by Bob Dozier.

Reviews

  1. Bully for Mr Dozier!Review by
    Rating
    Nice and light, with easy one hand operation. Sort of a more budget-conscious Delica. All right, diehard Spyderco fans would disagree, but it really is well made at this price point. And you get the ergonomic advantages from a custom designer made to a perfectly acceptable standard, albeit mass produced.

    Mine has an orange handle and black powder coated blade, which after a few years of considerable use is acquiring some character. The oval thumb hole is a bit more positive than my Spyderco Drop Point Lightweight UK Penknife, with its circular thumb hole just a bit more slippery. Mind you, it’s an early Chinese example in sabre-ground GIN-1, with a larger chamfer on the thumb hole. My recently purchased UKPK from Heinnie’s with its broad leaf type blade, is much more crisp and certain in both feel and operation. But back to the Dozier - the oval thumb hole is very sure, and seems to require less conscious force to guide it either opening or closing. Smooth but not sloppy.

    The steel certainly sharpens easily, and the size is just right. Being a lock knife, it stays home and ventures no further than the garden.

    I really like this one. It’s comfortable, not a bulky lump in a pocket, and is easy to maintain.

    I have been using it for quite few years now so despite being made in Taiwan the finish and built quality is quite good. The blade can be sharpened very well but it holds the edge really poorly and it must be sharpened very often- especially if the knife is used for fine jobs. (Posted on )

    I've owned this knife for about two years now and like the other reviewer use it daily at work! It's a great knife at a great price. The black on the clip will wear off in time and it is made in Taiwan.
    Still I love it! Buy it here!!!
