Whether you’re hunting hogs in the wilds of Florida or heading out on a camping trip, the KA-BAR Baconmaker is a badass knife with a versatile design that’s optimized for any outdoor adventure.

Produced by KA-BAR in conjunction with Johnson Adventure Blades, the Baconmaker is 12.75 inches of pure gristle and strength.

Originally made for a friend in the Special Operations community by knifemaker Steve Johnson, the large fixed blade has an aggressive shape created to stick things without breaking.

The recurved blade, which is 7.125 inches long and made from KA-BAR’s reliable 1095 Cro-Van, cuts and slashes with impunity. An even better example of its power is its ability to easily pierce the thick shield of a wild boar.

Balancing out the shapely blade is the knife’s ergonomic brown GFN-PA66 handle. The textured material uses the new AdventureGrip, which is not only highly durable but also stays in the hand in wet environments. Aside from that, the curves of the handle offer maximum comfort, regardless of how large or small your hand is.

This deliciously functional knife includes a heavy duty polyester sheath to keep the knife securely at your side when you need it.

Don’t go out on your next outdoor adventure without the impressive Baconmaker.
