Wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a Hobo

The KA-BAR brand originated as a trademark of the Tidioute Cutlery Company. Tidioute was later taken over & renamed the Union Cutlery Company which continued making the brand until Union eventually adopted it as the company name in 1952. Cutco Corporation later acquired the company in 1996.

Let's see--cigar band, stag, no spoon. What's not to like?!!! Yes, having a spoon is handy, but soup+hobo (a Coghlan's model served me in Scouts; and also college) is a really bad mix. And it ruins the look.

The imported hobo Kabar offers now looks to be simply a generic design they slapped their name and tang stamp on. They seemed to have offered a LOT of generic China/Taiwan designs as Kabar back in the 1990s; and the Hobo is the only one still being made.
