Ka-bar Knives TDI Black Metal Belt Clip
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.
Been wearing this knife for a couple of months. The handle makes it different to use, but don't get in way while sitting, holds a pretty good edge. All in all pretty good knife.
My son is a avid hunter. He loves it it's high quality and has a great edge and is affordable.
The only complaint I have with this item, is that it doesn't come with a pocket clip, I had to order it separately. Other then that, the knife itself forms nicely to my hand when I hold it, and the blade is so durable and sharp I don't think I will have to sharpen it for a vary long time.
The TDI metal clip is a great replacement for the Velcro Strips that come with the knife. The metal clip allow the knife to be placed on the inner belt quickly, and allows for easy movement. It also makes it easy to wear the knife hooked to my jeans, under my belt.
