KA5101: KBD Master Series Snody "Boss" with Chisel Ground Blade
This knife has a chisel ground blade which means it is flat on one side and the other has a bevel. Mike Snody is the master when it comes to designing small but functional fixed blades. And by small we mean full size, not neck knives. His designs, coupled with KA-BAR’s ability to produce a great knife at a great price in the USA, makes for one fantastic line...plus it's got S35VN Steel!

A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
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.
