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.

Pros: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Cons: None
nice functional knife
Great everyday knife, basic, no frills functionality. Fit and finish is very good. Has a nice weight and feel in hand. Blade came sharp but not razor sharp. Not a super fast opening knife but very smooth and solid. Made in China but lets face it, if it was made in the US it would cost 3 times as much and be no better quality. Overall a great everyday user, at a good price.
