A side to side reversible black metal pocket clip is mounted at the butt end of this Ka-Bar knife. The Ka-Bar Dozier Bobcat Folder has an overall open length of 9 1/4".
Serrated Blade -
A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied force at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut.
Clip Blade -
The clip blade is a classic shape and very practical. Its name describes a shape that seems to have a portion of the spine of the blade clipped off. This brings the blade point lower for extra control and enhances the sharpness of the tip. It provides ample "belly" in the blade for slicing or skinning and a good tip for inserting in and under things that need to be cut. You will often find a false edge with the clip point.
AUS 8 -
A Japanese made medium carbon, high chromium stainless steel, which offers a good balance of toughness, edge sharpness and corrosion resistance.
A glass filled nylon material used in making handles for knives. DuPont trademark.
Flat Ground -
A grind the tapers from the top of the blade down to the cutting edge. Also known as a "V" grind.
