Additional information

This mean looking fighting knife is almost big enough to be a short sword; an able blade for a down-and-dirty frontier scrum. The blade is of 420 stainless steel and the s-guard is brass. The grip is of layered and polished wood. A stitched leather sheath with a buttoned securing strap and belt loop is included.

With its elongated Khukuri-like tip this fighting knife will strike and chop with dreadful force. Its forward curve is quite subtle and the spine and profile of the blade remain straight enough to make it a good thrusting blade as well – its wide tip ensures that even a shallow thrust will be made distressingly wide. A thick blade spine both imparts durability, as well as adding a rigid mass that powers its chops and efficiently propels force forward in the thrust. The integrated hidden tang runs for about 2/3 of the length of the grip.

  1. Mantrid

    A nice looking and affordable knife. It just arrived, so I have yet to thoroughly test it, but it seems to be a quality blade. The blade comes sharp enough to slice through an envelope, and I always liked the shape. Aside from the leaf blade, the convex to concave blade shape is elegant, useful, and in my opinion, beautiful. The blade metal had no pitting or light rust, which was good, since it wasn’t shipped with a coating of oil or cosmoline. The sheath is of good quality leather that is actually very thick. It feels like the sheath should have cost at least $30 by itself. The handle of this blade feels like strong wood, but it’s weight throws me off. I’m not sure if the wood is kind of cheap, or if it isn’t full tang, which brings me to my only complaint; I can’t tell if it is a full tang or not. The end of the tang isn’t visible (which I already knew from the pictures) but I didn’t feel it’s weight when holding the knife. Even if you can’t see the tang or pommel, you often can feel it’s weight. This knife is top heavy, so maybe it’s just hard to notice it. Considering the cost, if it is a full sized and full length tang, then this is probably the best deal on a knife on all of KOA.

    KoA, Please provide information on whether this is full-tang or not. Sans that, I can only imagine the worst since there’s not sign of the blade below the hilt. “Is an inch-long nub of the blade really just friction-wedged into the wood handle?” That. Sounds horrible, right?

      The knife is designated as “Integrated” for its construction. It is not full tang in the sense of the hilt construction being a tang with two grip scales attached, as has been noted by that tang not being visibly present. Knife is listed as battle-ready as it is durably constructed. The tang itself is about 70% of the length of the handle.
