Brand: Kershaw 1098AK
You have been hiking for hours and you are "positive" you are walking in the right direction. You turn left. You turn right. You're lost. Now what? If you have the right tool you can set up for the night and wait for rescue. If you don't have the right tool you are in for a long lonely night. With Kershaw Kinves and Tools you will have the best opportunity to make it out of your ordeal safely and securely. Kershaw Knives and Tools are sought after outdoorsmen, hunters, LEO, military, and everyone in between that appreciates excellent tools and blades. Next time you are heading out to the urban jungle, or your favorite isolated hiking trail take Kershaw with you. "Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it".
How can you take more tools with you, but have them take up less space in your tent or rig? That's the beauty of the Blade Trader concept. Kershaw's Blade Trader technology provides the convenience of multiple, interchangeable blades and tools, but with a single handle. After all, there's no need to carry the whole tool, when it's just the business end you want.
The Alaskan Blade Trader is the perfect choice for hunters. It gives you a big skinning blade with non-clogging gut hook, a sturdy saw blade, and a handy do-everything-else clip-point utility blade. All three blades, plus the comfortable Blade Trader handle, store in a compact leather belt sheath.
You can exchange blades with the Blade Trader's exclusive Quik-Lock mechanism quickly, easily, and safely. The steel used to make each blade is matched to its specific application. And like the blades themselves, each Blade Trader handle is engineered with attention to function and form. Even after years of constant use, the patented Quik-Lock mechanism will securely hold each blade in place. To make the job more comfortable, the non-slip Blade Trader handle is ergonomically designed to reduce hand fatigue.
