Ka-Bar Johnson Adventure Blades – Potbelly and Baconmaker
Ka-Bar has some new, incredible fixed blades from a new series. The series is called “The Adventure” after a young man who likes to enjoy himself named Steve Johnson. The designs are really distinctive and, equally distinctive are the sheaths they come with. They have enormous pockets so that you can include all kinds of gear with the knife in one easy pouch. Also, a smaller knife is included called the “Piggyback” which is touted as ” the smallest Adventure blade — cuts like a knife twice its size.” This Piggy back model is made in China, but the full sized knives are all American made.
You can see them at www.knifecenter.com

Becker is back … again! Ethan Becker designs great knives; he just always seems to partner with manufacturers that proceed to go out of business. This time he has joined forces with the fine folks at Ka-Bar – and they’re not going anywhere. KaBar has the talent, resources and vision to build his knives better than they have been built before. A great example is the first knife they are releasing, the composite blade Necker. This Japanese produced version of the Necker is made from carbon San Mai steel. It is not only a beautiful knife, but a very functional and effective one.

Ka Bar FIN Series of Combat Folders
Ka Bar has tried bringing in various imports in the past. Most are now on closeout. This series, however, was designed here in the US for the typical Ka Bar customer- the tactical knife crowd. Designed by Peter Janda, the FIN Folders are stout while maintaining a thin profile. The frame lock design ensures the blade will stay locked in open position even when gripped in a fist. The handle is all steel with 4 positions for the pocket clip. Blade shapes are mostly very creative and the steel is AUS 8A stainless.
