An industrial engineer by training, Steve Johnson developed am interest in metallurgy and knife-making as a young boy and began making hand-made pieces for friends. He teamed up with KA-BAR a couple years back and today the Company offers eight Johnson Adventure Blades through its KA-BAR Master Series. The KA-BAR Piggyback is the smallest knife in the Johnson Adventure line. It is built for field dressing game from upland birds to big hogs and everything in between. Its simple skeleton design is very easy to clean up and it is made of high carbon stainless steel so keeping an edge on it is easy. It has a deep belly and an abrupt clip point that is perfect for unzipping skin from forelegs and other critical areas when caping out a trophy. The Piggyback is all about toughness & simplicity. It comes standard with Hard Plastic Sheath. Great knife, Very sharp. The single piece of steel makes it ideal for prying as well ad cutting. Carry it for utility as well as defense. All around great quality you would expect from KA-Bar.
