This knife belongs to my wife.

This is a Bob Dozier design built by KaBar. It is made in Taiwan. The scales are green micarta and give a great hand filling grip. The down side for some people might be that this is not a thin knife...its a chunk.

The liners are nice and thick (no paper thin stuff here) and lock up is very solid.

The blade is very recognizable as a Dozier design...nice high grind and cuts like a razor.

If I had to pick one flaw it would be the thumb stud. It seems smooth enough that after starting to open your thumb cannot always maitain contact with it. The blade glides pretty smooth so the blade can continue to fly open and if you are still going through the opening motion without contacting the thumb stud, you could possible end up with a nasty cut on your thumb.

My wife has gotten pretty good at opening it with a little practice and has not cut herself. Still the thumb stud could stand to be looked at by KaBar...maybe rough it up a bit for better grip.

Pocket clip is nothing special...can count on either side of the knife.

Really one of the better folders to come along in quite some time...and easily found for under 50 bucks.
