Pros: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Weight, Sheath, Lock Ease of Use
KA-BAR Hobo And Sheath
The KA-BAR Hobo and sheath is a good buy. The sheath will fit a very wide belt having a full length strap on its the back. The sheath is of synthetic material and closes with hook and loop. It is light weight, covers the knife well with a nice fit, and seems secure. Over all the three utensils, which seperate by a push length-wise, are good. The spoon is ample and ambidextrous, unlike the Case HOBO. The knife is just fine, and the blade locks when opened. The fork is pretty much a little food stabber since it is small, straight, and flat. It does not have the downward curve like the spoon.. The bottle cap opener is in/on the fork handle. After quite a bit of online studying, I bought this one and the Case HOBO too. Among those available that I am aware of, AND if you plan to carry and use the Hobo; this would be my choice. Between it and the pretty Case I would choose the KA-BAR, and here is why. This one is much less expensive and comes with a good functional sheath. This Hobo is smaller and lighter, so carrying is more practical. The utensils are just as good and the spoon is a lot better than on the case. To sum it up, I would say that the KA-BAR is a user and the Case is a collector.
