KNIFE FOR LIFE - KA-BAR DROP FORGED WRENCH KNIFE (USA MADE)
This is an exceptionally well made knife. Drop forging from a single piece of steel creates one of th strongest knives possible and is also one of the most expensive ways to make a modern knife.
Due to the expense of production there is no room for other frills like a fancy sheath or packaging, nor is it needed.
This is a beautifully crafted, simple piece of rugged steel that will last a lifetime. This is a knife that can be passed down for generations as there is nothing to break. It's construction is very strong and we believe you will have to try very hard to break it on purpose to cause damage.
For a lump of steel it has been really well designed to fit comfortably in the hand with nice balance. It can be adaptable to a range of tasks from food prep to carving to processing game to cutting line and opening boxes.
While it does have the cool factor of the 'wrench' inspired design we feel it is a fully functional general purpose fixed blade task knife that won't let you down.
Wether you're looking for a compact all-rounder for camp or a collectors piece or a gift or something for someone new to knives to learn with, this can tick all the boxes.
With a sold plastic sheath it can sit comfortably in your camp box or kitchen without causing any damage.
Pair this with the 'Overlanding Folder', the KA-BAR COYPU and you have the 2 knives you need for vehicle based adventures. If you wondering what the Big Brother of this knife is, check out the KA-BAR Mark 1.

Jimmy's Tip: The sheath is designed for neck carry. While classed as a neck knife you are getting a full weight 3" blade with full functionality so we feel it can perform alongside any standard camp / EDC knife.
