DUKBD: Down Under Knives Bush Dagger
Down Under Knives
 
The Bush Dagger™ - the ultimate backup. We wanted to design a push dagger with a difference, and as far as we're concerned, this is as good as it gets. The unique blade design provides maximum penetration and cutting power, while the solid ebony handle and generous finger space allow positive control even when wearing gloves. We also wanted to get rid of the snagging and binding sheaths commonly seen on this type of knife, so we gave it a rock solid heavy leather belt scabbard. Worn on the small of the back, simply disengage the retaining strap in the same fluid motion you use to grab the handle and the knife is in your hand - in practically no time, every time. We figured when you need one of these, you seriously don't want to spend precious seconds fighting your knife first.

Don't get us wrong. We believe stamped steel, nylon and paracord can be absolutely great for many applications. But when you reach for a push dagger, we believe you'll be much happier with something more solid and traditional. That's why we built it every bit as strong as the Kookaburra™ and Outback™ - even the scabbard is made of the same thick stitched leather. The ebony handle is fully contoured to fit a wide range of hands without twisting or biting into your skin, and the ample grip it provides means the only real way to separate you from your knife is to ask politely. You'll also notice the complete absence of boot clips and gimmicks, because we just couldn't see you bending over to roll up your pants when the situation calls for getting it out in a hurry. It's a traditional design because traditions tend to arise out of things that work.

**Knives have a high mirror polish which may have slight scuffing from factory.

I Like It, and Will Be Carrying It Under a Shirt!
I was happy with it just out of the box, about a week ago. It is a very nice finish, but I am always more concerned with capability. A Prom Queen is always nice, but a biker chick will get you there too! HA HA! I made a few passes with my Meyerco Blackie Collins Sharpen-It, and it shaved hair. I tried the grip and tested it with a paper slash and a punch into cardboard. It was all aces. The sheath WILL fit my Blackhawk 1 3/4'' Instructor Belt, and it can sit right well under my usual untucked button down shirt. The sheath is no Randall's, but solid enough, and should hold fine. I have several push knives, to include three customs, so I have a little experience with the genre.

Great Push Dagger
The fit and finish are top notch. The high polish is beautiful> I had to touch up the blade with my crock sticks and now the edge is like a razor. Blade shape and the African ebony grip are just right. The scabbard isn't too good as it is very oversize for the dagger. I highly recomend this as I don't think you could find a nicer one that is factory made.
