KA5558: Fin Velocity Folder
KA-BAR Knives
The KA-BAR Fin Velocity folder is one of those knives you have to have in your hand to appreciate and we are proud to offer this warehouse closeout deal to you. It’s a solid knife with an aggressive blade shape and comfortable ergonomic handle. The bead blasted blade is made from 8Cr13 stainless steel and the reverse tanto shape is utilitarian, tactical, sharp, and beautiful. The handle is lightly textured G10 with stainless steel bolsters and liners. There is purposeful jimping on the thumb ramp, finger area of the handle, and lockback tab - which is very easy to disengage, unlike many designs. It features a large lanyard hole, deep carry pocket clip, dual thumbstuds and it instills a confidence in you that this knife is built with quality and toughness. It is a knife you will definitely enjoy carrying.

Cons: None
Great buy/ good quality
Bought this for my son and now I will buy more... one for my husband and some for future christmas presents for his workers. It is very sharp right out of the box. The workmanship was solid and good quality. I don't think you could get a better knife for this price.

Cons: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality
Made in China poor assembly/quality
Bought 3 of these knives as gifts for my Sons and myself. First thing noticed that one of the pocket spring clips was loose and the two screws holding in place were crooked. This ended up being an issue on two of the three. Couldn't salvage one of them as the screws were stripped and could not loosen or back them out. These knives came from China. Country of origin is not listed in the product description and should be for all knives. If it had been I would not have purchased these and would have chosen something that is not made in china even at a higher price. Ka-bar is a favorite of mine but I am disappointed that they find it necessary to job out to China to be competitive. Not worth $5.00 to ship back will cut off pocket spring and use it in my garage work shop

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Cons: None
Best quality and value..
Kabar has a real winner with the Velocity. Plenty of steel, nice and heavy (like a folder SHOULD be)and the tried and true lockback mechanism. Only thing is that I wish the backspring was stiffer. This knife definitely outclasses knives costing five times as much. Don't waste your money on a Benchmade, get a Kabar.
