WHAT THE MANUFACTUER SAYS:
The KA-BAR/Dozier Skeleton Knife is a no-nonsense, lightweight knife that can be worn as a neck knife or concealed in a pocket or pack. Made of stainless steel, the Dozier Skeleton is 6.375" long and features a 2.625" blade.
Sold with a hard plastic sheath and KA-BAR's limited lifetime warranty.
WHAT WE SAY:
- We really like:
- the value for money!
- it's feel & grip in the hand,
- it's compact size,
- it's strength with a thick spine &
- a basic plastic sheath supplied as standard.
This is another knife that has suprised us. At first we were drawn in by the cool skeleton design and overtime have really enjoyed this as a practical, capable, Every Day Carry (EDC).
If your looking for a good value entry knife for camping then start with this before moving on to other knives and you may be suprised with it's versatility too.
Compact enough to easily fit in your pocket around camp and not be noticed. For a small knife it has been designed in a way that it can perform larger tasks if needed, such as batoning. We like how the index finder can be safely positioned on the drop point so it could be used for dressing game or carving.
For the price, this is a great entry knife and a good option for the bug out bag, tool kit etc..
See the 'Specifications' tab for details.
Jimmy's Tip: Pair this knife with a larger blade for rougher tasks where you want to save the edge of your main blade. While it can be worn as a neck knife the standard sheath will not hold steady if you need to run or climb so look at some aftermarket sheath options or create a hack (link to non-english speaking vid). If you're like me and like to geek out, explore it's potential as a bushcraft knife check out this vid (also non-english)
