Best Ka Bar Folder Yet
Yeah I know its made in Taiwan. I know its AUS8 but damn this is one solid knife! My copy showed up in perfect condition. Has some weight to it which I like. Blade is on the thick side this is a hard use knife. Liner lock locks up stone cold perfect. The FRN/GRN handle feels like it can take a hell of a lot of abuse. The long heavy blade snaps open with authority right out of the box. The pivot on this knife is huge! Jimping along the first inch or so of the spine of the blade. The knife feels solid as a rock in the hand. Ergonomics are fantastic it just feels good. The steel liners are NOT skeletonized which I actually like. The washers are teflon. Mercifully the clip is fine no crazy designs or weird angles. Clip is able to be screwed in at the butt end as well so you have tip up or tip down carry options. To sum up this thing is a beast. The fit and finish are perfect. Its designed to be used hard and last and I predict it will. This knife is an astonishing value.
