View Full Version : Knives of Alaska

I just ordered three of the knives from Cabelas with a gift Certificate, just wondering who has had any experience with the Knives of Alaska, they look and sound pretty nice, figured I would ask, and when I get mine and have a chance to use them in the field I will let ya'll know how they turn out.

I actually made my own set, I didn't like some of the combo's, I guess being picky, but I chose the bush camp, the muskrat, and the Cub Bear from cabela's, if they work out or not I will let everyone know, I have been interested in them for a while, and with the gift certificate I got from the misses I figured I would give them a try....

Got back in port, and my knives were waiting on me, so far haven't used them in the field, but the blades are impressive, nice leather scabbards, sharp as possible, will see how long the material holds up on d-8 deer in a few weeks, but so far I am impressed.....

used these knives to help an ol boy skin and gut his 3x2 and 400lb bear in d-8, after words still was able to shave hair, very rugged, I love them, he was so impressed he is ordering a set this week for hunting.....
I reccomend these highly

Thanks for the report, sounds like the knifes work out great. Glad to hear you are happy with them. I may have to look into them myself.

Finally picked up the light hunter combo set to add to my brown bear combo set....

As far as a production knife goes, I think they're at or near the top of the list (mine at least). You don't find a lot of production knives made of D2 but most of the KOA knives are. Great steel from my experience. Especially when it comes to edge holding ability.
I particularly like their leather work. They put some really good stuff together. Much more practical to have the knives and steel in your pack than on your belt and their leather works well for that.
