KA5601: The Adventure Baconmaker
KA-BAR Knives

The Baconmaker -- the more aggressive Adventure blade -- is the ideal knife for hog hunting. Crafted from 1095 cro-van, this beast is built to withstand any abuse and never fail. The hollow ground blade maintains razor sharpness while the knife's overall geometry provides optimum thrusting power, perfect for sticking hogs. The glass-filled nylon handle gives you unmatched control, thanks to an ergonomic multi-position handle that's been finished with our proprietary Adventuregrip texture.

The sheath is specially designed to offer multiple carry options, including MOLLE< and its roomy stuff sack is perfect for hunting necessities like rubber gloves, sharpening utensils, Adventurecord or anything else you need to Own the adventure!

The Piggyback -- the smallest Adventure blade -- cuts like a knife twice its size. It takes no more room than a medium-sized folding knife, and its deep belly shape and short clip point are designed for "unzipping" game. Grip points on the spine allow for even the most delicate work and the knife's simple design makes cleanup a snap.

The Piggyback comes standard with the Potbelly and the Baconmaker.
