Did you know Ka-Bar has a fun series of knives? They do. The Ka-Bar Original Zombie Knives series. Ka-Bar tells us, “Whether setting up camp or securing your perimeter, the Original Zombie knives are designed to perform under the most rigorous, unexpected and apocalyptic situations.” The Ka-Bar Acheron is the smallest, most budget friendly knife in this series. This super small and lightweight knife is also wicked looking from the skeletonized handle to the recurve blade. It is also massively budget friendly at only $7.99.
First, the 3.125” 5Cr13 black coated recurve blade is just wicked looking and highly functional. The clip point gives a nice piercing action. The long recurve with it’s thin edge allows not only an incredible slice but razor sharpness.
There’s jimping behind the blade to allow for different grips. The skeletonized handle keeps the weight down to just under an ounce. Additionally, it allows for a paracord wrap because who doesn’t need more paracord?
This knife also comes with a hard plastic sheath with a belt loop attachment.
