KA Custom DogTag
Kingdom Armory Custom DogTags
*The original thumb chisel Dog Tag styling - Grey Ghost G10 backplate w/Ti bolt - brass chain
3/4" wide by 1 5/8" long
Always popular, but only made in small batches a few times each year.
For those that don't already know, the KA DogTag design is a backup friction folder made to wear as a necker or detached from the included length of ball chain to be hung on a key chain or pack. Most are made from parts and pieces of extra material that Dave has saved and ferreted away over the year. As such, each Tag is unique and individually made by hand. Variations in size, shape and grind style, as well as different back plate materials really do make every Tag a unique custom piece.
This particular group is all made using CMP-154 stainless steel and heat treated by Bos. That makes for a highly corrosion resistant tool for maximum wearability, as Dave makes all his kitchen knives from the same steel. Back-plate materials range from acrylic moon-glow to peeled texture G10. All bolts are titanium hollow bolts, that allow the attachment of stainless ball chain. (or in the case of this run, all Brass) Most blade finishes are glass blasted and stonewashed with either satin zero grinds, or matching stonewashed hollow grinds w/traditional secondary chisel cutting edges
As mentioned exact sizing will vary, but all fit within a general foot print of 1.75" x 1" to 2.75" x .75" and have approximately 3/4" to 1 1/2" of razor sharp zero ground cutting edge (some being compound flat and hollow grinds).
Please see detailed pics, as each are different.... particularly the in hand pics for sizing, etc...
