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