Scrap Yard Knives War Dog

I always look forward to seeing new releases from Scrap Yard Knife Works (SYKW). In my opinion, they make some of the toughest and most reasonably priced knives on the market. Their most recent offering is called the War Dog and it looks like it has tremendous potential.

The War Dog is flat ground from a .235″ thick slab of Busse’s famous INFI steel. INFI is renowned for its toughness. It also has a new handle shape that is molded from SYKW’s Resiprene C material. The handle looks to be very well shaped for use with multiple grips and the Resiprene C material offers excellent grip in my experience. I especially like the versatile drop point blade shape. It has enough belly for tasks that call for it and plenty of straight edge near the handle for cuts that require more leverage.

The War Dog costs a bit more than other offerings from SYKW but that is due to the exclusivity of INFI steel. You can check it out on the Scrap Yard website.

    Lovin all the recent edged coverage Matt. 🙂 SYK make some great stuff, I will tell you that War Dog is going to be flying off their shelves. I wish they kept some models around, but I guess that is part of the appeal.
