The flat grind and clip point design further enhance its functionality, allowing for precise and controlled cuts.

In addition to its impressive blade, this knife features a comfortable leather handle. Not only does the leather provide a secure and firm grip, but it also adds an element of sophistication to the overall design. The powdered sintered metal butt cap/guard further enhances its durability and ensures long-lasting use.

The Dog's Head Utility Knife is also easy to carry, making it an excellent option for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you need a reliable tool for setting up camp, preparing meals, or tackling various outdoor tasks, this knife has got you covered.

Included with the knife is the stylish Brown Leather Dog's Head Pirate Sheath which not only offers storage and protection but also adds to the overall aesthetics of the knife.

    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.
