KA-BAR Snody Boss, 3.5" S35VN Steel Blade, Zytel Handle - 5101
KA-BAR teamed up with Mike Snody, custom knife maker, to produce factory knives that honor the looks and finish of Mike's custom-made pieces.
The Boss is a classic Snody knife, easily recognizable to his fans. The factory version has been decked out with premium S35VN steel and lots of accessories. Each knife comes with two sets of textured handles--a blue "Reptile" version is mounted to the knives and a purple "Dolla Holla" version highlights Snody's stylized "S" logo and is included in the package. We've also thrown in a custom-designed Schmuckatelli Co. bead, coordinating 550 cord, and a high-quality leather sheath.

Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.
Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.
He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was "k a bar". The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.
