Dog's Head Red Spacer KA-BAR

(0)
The Red Spacer KA-BAR is arguably the most collectible KA-BAR Knife made during World War II.  The distinct red spacer below the hand guard and above the leather washer has caught the eye of collectors for decades.  Though originals are rare and expensive, KA-BAR’s State & Union shop has made a small batch of this iconic knife with the Dog's Head blade mark.   The leather washers are shaped by hand and dyed to create an aged appearance.  The pommel is ground down to replicate the dimensions of the original.  Each red spacer is hand made to be slightly longer than the current spacer used on KA-BAR Fighting/Utility Knives.  The blade is sandblasted, then cold gun blued.  The sheath undergoes an ageing process to darken the leather and match the original sheath color.

State & Union 6421 Folder Open
State and Union OSF Folder, Anodized #6421 The Old School Folder “OSF” is State & Union’s first take on a frame lock folding knife. The OSF was designed with KA-BAR’s traditional leather stacked fighter in mind, which is why the blade has a fuller or “blood groove”. This knife is a flipper and the pivot is on caged bearings for quick and easy opening. So, if you’re a fan of flippers, this is a knife you need to get your hands on! Equipped with a 3.75” CPM S35VN steel blade, 6Al-4V titanium frame and all 6Al-4V titanium hardware (excluding stop pin, caged bearings, washers, pivot barrel, and lock-bar stabilizer), this knife is built to last a lifetime. The OSF’s pocket clip can also be arranged for tip-up or tip-down carry, so whatever your carry preference may be, we have you covered. If you’re looking for a high-quality folding knife, you can stop your search here!   This OSF features a blue anodized frame and engraving, along with purple anodized hardware. $500.00
