$20 for 2 new Kabars a deal?

Found this on CDNN's website.


From other sources, blade steel appears to be what Kabar calls SK5 (1080?)

Kabar has them on closeout for $40 but CDNN's price is obviously much better. Looks like the combo originally retailed for around $80.

Not really my kind of knife, but it looks to be a fairly decent price to me. Might get one as a gift for the nephew.
Did you know there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?

Not really a qualified, positive response here but the larger one's geometry looks a bit like a bread knife The smaller one I think I've seen on Cabelas sale for around $10 in the past. Must be some reason for the pricing, but not saying it's bad for the buck. Why else have a pouch gizmo to sell it?

JShirley thought that package was a really good deal, with caveats, at $35 - http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=797565

The blade design is a tried and true pattern and I agree with JShirley that the sharp finger choil should be reduced with a grinder to make the big knife more comfortable to use. At those bargain prices I don't care what they call it!

TheHighRoad exists to provide a higher grade of discussion than is found on some other gun forums so antis and undecideds can see that gun owners and RKBA advocates are not the reckless misanthropes they tell everyone we are. Personal attacks, group stereotyping, macho chest-thumping, and partisan hackery are low road and hurt all of us.

Ka bar makes good stuff
At shot show, a few years ago they sold off the display models, cheap.
I got an orange handled one, similar tothe green one for10 bucks, Aus 8 steel. I carry it often.

I also got a now dicontinued bobcat. A folding version of the fixed blade. A big honking 1/2 pound of substancial knife. I use it in the woods hunting and fishing.
Hit the report button if you find a problem.

I only have so many heartbeats left. I am not wasting them on things that are not fun.

If you're good with a grinder, it's a great deal on a big knife with a useful sheath to throw in a pack or car kit. If you're not, buy a cheap Ontario knife.
