Jesse Jarosz is a name you’re going to be hearing more and more often. The young knife maker is relatively new to the business (he made his first knife in 2009), but he’s already made his mark on the knife community. He won the “Best New Maker” award at the USN G4 in 2012 and has since earned a reputation as one of the best young makers on the scene.

Now, KA-BAR is releasing his first production folder simply known as the Jarosz Folder.

The Jarosz folder is getting two iterations: the Drop Point 7505 and the Tanto 7506. Both knives feature 3-inch blades made from AUS-8A stainless steel and glass-filled nylon handles.


These knives are based on the Jarosz custom design Model M75 Tetrad. That custom, which uses AEB-L steel and contoured handles with 6AL4V Aircraft Titanium Liners, received rave reviews from anyone who got their hands on a model. One of the most effusive reviews comes from Everyday Commentary.

If the production version of this folder can capture any magic of the custom model, it’s sure to be an excellent knife for everyday carry.

This isn’t the first Jarosz model from KA-BAR either. The brand also released the KA-BAR Jarosz Turok and the KA-BAR Jarosz Globetrotter.

I’ll write an update if I can get my hands on one of these new knives.
