    Interest piece no longer being made by Ka-bar. The Dosier is a hefty locking folder that locks up like a fixed blade.
    At 8 oz it is a handful and does feel good in the hand. For me it is not an EDC but it is "good in the woods."

    Thats pretty neat!

    Don't think I ever saw one.

    I ran across a huge Benchmade at a gun show a while back I didn't know they ever made either.

    It had about a 5" - 6" blade and an edge guard that cantilevered / paragraphed out of the handle to cover the extra blade that stuck out of the end when folded!

    Still don't know what model it was, or when they made it?
    I found one on the discontinued Benchmade page, but it wasn't like the one I saw.

    The Strider AR I have with the full titanium backspacer weighs in at around 9 1/2 oz.

    Love those heavy beefy folders, if it somehow falls from your pocket , you notice it right away ( especially it lands on your foot ! ).

    Reminds me , I lent a Kabar Dozier to a friend and never did get it back.....

    How heavy is the old style brass and wood handled Buck 110 that people used to carry in a belt pouch?

    Sorry but If I am going to carry something that beefy it's going to be a fixed blade. None of this "almost as strong as" stuff.;)

    Of course I am legally allowed to. :neener:

    Kinda feel sorry for you guys who aren't :(

    I'm a fan of monster "kit" folders to keep in backpacks, 4WDs, saddlebags and the like. At only 3/8 oz below "half pound" this one's very close, awful handy, tough as hell and no leather to be concerned with when it's "outa-sight-outa-mind" for months and years on end.
