KA3072: Warthog Folder III, Drop Point Plain Edge
KA-BAR Knives
 
G10 handles give this knife a tactical look and a sure grip. The teflon coating on the AUS-8 stainless steel blade is non-reflective, which is ideal for tactical situations, and also provides added corrosion resistance. Double thumbstud assists one hand opening for either right or left hand users. The drop point blade has a ton of belly making this knife not only an excellent every day carry option but also a great hunting tool for field dressing game. Features a non-reversible tip-down pocket clip and gunmetal gray stainless steel bolsters for added aesthetics.

Worth the wait for the price
I want to be clear with my 3/5 star rating. This is NOT a bad knife, not even close. I ordered this knife from knife center when it was out of stock and it took a rather long time to come in, but even then I still feel that it was worth the wait. Bear in mind the knife is under $20, so obviously we're not expecting some grand blade, but for what you get it's pretty surprising. It's a bit heavier than one may like, though I've carried ZT's for EDC's so weight wasn't a big thing for me. The blade material and sharpness was a slight issue, but a quick sharpen (I use a worksharp) and it worked just great. I usually force myself to use new pocket knives for a minimum of seven days at my job (warehouse job) to get a real feel for it. It has a solid lock up and I like the handle a lot. It's very smooth to open and I haven't had an issue with the pocket clip. Overall again I always come back to price when it comes to cheaper blades. It's not high quality, but it can be a great cheap EDC, and there's no reason no to throw it into a tool bag.

Cons:
great performance for under $15
i love this knife. i have been collecting knives for about 10 years. i lost a lum benchmade then i recently lost a spyderco sage 2... so i decided to carry a cheap knife for a bit. well i use my knife everyday from light to moderate use. the one thing i love about this knife is the cheap price. if i lose it, no biggie... with that being said these knives are made with 8cr13mov for the blade steel. this is the Chinese version of 420j2 steel. most knife enthusiast stay away from any knife made with 420 blade steel let alone the cheaper Chinese version of a crappy blade steel. i would normally never look twice at a knife like this however ya gotta hope and figure a knife company that has been around for over 100 years has gotta have some standards for quality too be around that long right? i have noticed the knife does not hold an edge as long as aus 8 steel or 440 or some of the other lower end but suitable knife steels but... a couple strokes on a fine diamond hone and its RIDICULOUSLY sharp! so the trade off if fine with me. if your proficient with a hone you should give this knife a shot. the design is pretty decent..kinda clunky but the g10 scales are pretty nice and grip well. the lock up is way solid! its no sebenza but i feel very confident while working with it.if your looking for a edc beater blade that is a VERY solid performer you will love this knife.

Excellent knife!
Mine was razor sharp out of the box and held that edge well with nearly everyday use. Sharpens easily and has a great all round feel. Would recommend to anyone and you can't beat the price!
