Ka-Bar® introduced the first Dozier lightweight folder in late 2002. Since then, they have introduced several variations in blade style and handle color. At the 2019 S.H.O.T. Show, they introduced Bob's Folding Hunter (their most popular) with a red Zytel® handle and a black powder coated blade.

The 3" hollow ground blade is AUS-8 at 56-58 Rc. fitted into a 4-1⁄8" handle of red 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 truly ambidextrous. The clip is positioned for tip-up carry. Weighs 2.3 oz. Suggested retail $34.16. 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.
