Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.

Heavy Workhorse
I love the over all feel of this knife. It's weighty and nicely sized for my hand. Gripping the handle is no problem. You don't get a feel for what you order until it's hands on so I didn't know what to expect but I am loving it so far.

Nice Blade
Had to have this knife. I needed an all around knife and the Warthog fit the bill. From fine cutting to chopping. Does it all. I'm a big guy so the size and weight of this knife did not frighten me in the least. It is just right.My only complaint is the sheath. A bit on the cheap side. Stitching is very weak. Would have been more comfortable with all leather or Kydex. I may end up making a replacement one myself. The knife itself is a winner... Good balance and tough as nails.
