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 Carpenter Steel's CTS-XHP stainless steel and heat treated by Bos. Back-plate materials are either OD green or Spectre Grey G10. All bolts are titanium hollow bolts, that allow the attachment of stainless ball chain. Most blade finishes are satin stonewashed with satin grinds, with the exception being the full sculpted pieces that wear a darkened acidwashed and/or a satin grind combo.
As mentioned exact sizing will vary, However this last round of Tags are all quite a bit larger than normal. OAL ranges between 2.25 to 2.5" making them about 3/4" longer than previous iterations. Giving the focus on the kiridashi grind this go around, the increase in length really translates into more cutting edge (up to 1.25" which is 40% more than usual).
