The Kidon is one of Joe's longest standing knives and one of the original examples of his multi-purpose designs. It has a clip that runs the entire length of the blade for good piercing and the grind creates a tapered point. It has a fully domed and blended spine/ false upper edge. A rounded pommel means reduced snagging during foot movement when worn on the body or kit. It also means a handle that works for MANY hand sizes.
This version is AEB-L steel which is the most durable and least brittle of the stainless steels. Black Cerakote finish
8" OAL 4" blade. 5/32" thick steel
Included is a Boltaron sheath. While many shops use .060 kydex because it is easier to work with and cheaper, the material is frail and does not hold up to regular use or extreme outdoor temps. Back in the day, Joe said he would get max 3 months use out of commonly available .060 kydex sheaths and holsters before they broke. Ever since, he's been an advocate for material and thickness that are sufficient for serious use, accept nearly any attachment on the market, and are individually fitted to each knife
