Model KA3053: Desert Mule 4″ Combo Edge Folder

Heavy-duty lockback folders are big, feel solid in the hand, and are tough enough to tackle the most demanding chores.

The folding knife’s answer to the fixed-blade fighting/utility knife made famous by KA-BAR, the MULES are just as versatile, reliable and rugged. Heavy-duty stainless steel liners provide lateral strength. The 4″ clip-style blades are available with plain or partially serrated edges. Double thumb studs assist one-hand-opening for either right- or left-hand users. Rubber inserts ensure a comfortable and slip-resistant grip. Sold with nylon sheaths, fitted with Velcro and snap closures, that can be mounted horizontally or vertically on a belt. Available in desert or black.

    Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of kabar knives. They are reliable, well built, and the company seems to stand behind their product. This knife is decently built, it’s no benchmade, but it’s also 20% of the price. That said this knife is a swing and a miss. It is big and bulky, which is not bad for someone 6′ – 220lbs; but it’s clumsy and awkward in the hand. I have lg hands, typically size xl gloves in blackhawk, mechanix, Oakley, 5.11, etc… And occasionally an XXL. But this knife is so ergonomically uncomfortable to deploy, I purchased it, carried it for 30 days and had to take it back. For someone with small to medium hands it would likely be even worse. That said if your hands are XXXL, maybe give it a try… As they say size matters, but to me it is an awful design. The hinge point and thumb throw are so far apart that it almost takes two motions to deploy. If you can do it in one which I was able to, even after 100 openings, it still feels like u are stretching and reaching with your thumb to open it. So, if u want a recommendation, the benchmade auto presidio and Gerber DMF, Propel and 06 are can’t miss options. They just work comfortably and reliably… from a 100lb chick to a 200+lb gorilla they open every time, comfortably, and consistently.
