KA-BAR has partnered with Jesse Jarosz for a new line of knives.

KA-BAR only brought one new knife with them to this year’s shot show. It is the first in their new partnership with Nebraska knifemaker Jesse Jarosz and goes by the name “Globetrotter”. I like the look of this knife, and it seems like it would be an excellent choice for those who have the legal ability and desire to EDC a fixed blade knife.

KA-BAR Press Release (via TheOutdoorWire):

  1. Kinda pricy compared to the Becker 11/13 made from the same steel in the same basic market slot. Also, for EDC I would want a hard sheath if going with a material other than leather.
    Am I missing something here?
