Ka-Bar® introduced the Dozier lightweight folders in late 2002. It was this black version of the Folding Hunter which has been continuously in production since that time. They have introduced several handle colors since but the black remains a favorite.

The 3" hollow ground blade is AUS-8 at 56-58 Rc. fitted into a 4-1/8" handle of black Zytel®. This is a lockback which gives you a positive and secure lock. The clip and thumb stud are both reversible so the knife is ambidextrous. The clip is positioned for tip-up carry. Weighs 2.3 oz. Suggested retail is $28.01. Made in Taiwan.

  • Origin


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.

KA-BAR is best known for their military production knives. They were chosen by the U.S. Marine Corp. as the primary knife producer for World War II. They also have traditional pocket knives, as well as many options for law enforcement.
