    Unfortunately the Bobcat has been discontinued.
    I love mine despite its weight of 8.5 OZ If you get a chance to buy a used one, jump on it!
    Here is a snippet from an old write up in tactical knife.


    "The Bobcat’s heritage is easy to see, as its handle and blade mirror the shape of the earlier Bull Dozier. Like all of the Dozier/KA-BAR knives, the 4-1/8-inch long, clip-pointed, saber-ground blade is made from AUS-8 stainless steel (HRC 57-59). It is 1-3/16 of an inch wide, and 1/8 inch thick. The blade comes in two variations, one plain edged (4080), one (4081) that I had, with a plain/serration combination. On both models the blade has a black powder coating, which prevents sunshine from reflecting off of the blade and further protects the blade from corrosion."

    kabar2.jpg "The Zytel handle has three oval inserts of Kraton G on each side to ensure a good grip even when the handle is wet. There is an integrated guard at the front of the handle and single finger grip immediately behind the guard. The handle is 5-1/4 inches long, 1-3/16 inches wide and about 7/8-inch thick. The Bobcat comes with a black stainless steel pocket clip that can be mounted on either side of the handle. Overall length of the Bobcat is 9-3/8 inches and it weighs in at just under 8-1/2 ounces."


    "The Bobcat is a tip-up carry, lockback folder, and it has thumb studs on both sides of the blade. This makes the Bobcat truly an ambidextrous folder, which is a great feature to have on a tactical knife. When I first received the Bobcat, I looked it over and started carrying it immediately. "

    I was not disappointed.
