KA-BAR recently teamed up with Mike Snody, custom knife maker, to produce factory knives that honor the looks and finish of Mike's custom-made pieces.
The Snody Snake Charmer is a 6.5" neck knife that does just that, while beckoning to the roots of a similar past offering from the company, the bird and trout knife. Each knife is made from S35VN steel and comes with a custom-designed Schmuckatelli Co. bead, 550 cord, and a molded hard plastic sheath.
Made in the USA.

I received this knife yesterday and I really like it! It came razor sharp out of the box, it fit in hand perfectly, it's extremely lightweight and carry like a charm! An overall big win!
The Snody Snake Charmer is made out of s35vn stainless steel, this is my first knife made from this type of steel. It was not shaving sharp out of the box but this slight problem was rectified with my Lansky stones. The finish inside the finger hole was not cut cleanly and the surface was rough. This was cured with a Dremel and some steel wool. These setbacks just make me more critical of the knife. Once the knife was put into service these minor annoyances were quickly forgotten. I have used this knife everyday for a month, scraping wax off coyote trap triggers and pans. Opening boxes can be tough on knife steel, but it doesn't even dull this s35vn. I field dressed a deer, skinned it then cut out a back strap, still this knife does not need sharpening. Another big asset is the very unique sheath, the knife snaps in securely as makes no rattling noises. This is the perfect neck knife for my purposes, and I own many, a Becker necker, a TOPS/Buck 680 CSAR-T Liaison, and a Condor bush buddy. I like all these knives but this Snody made out of S35vn steel surpasses them all! Great knife steel, I'll be looking for more knives made from S35vn.
I like the hole package the sheath design amazing I have the Ka-bar hobo in my pack with the snake charmer the knife could be a bit thicker but it works very well holds an edge light weight and stays put in the sheath very well made
