Kershaw 1098AK Alaskan Blade Trader


How can you take more tools with you, but have them take up less space in your tent or rig? That’s the beauty of the Blade Trader concept. Kershaw’s Blade Trader technology provides the convenience of multiple, interchangeable blades and tools, but with a single handle. After all, there’s no need to carry the whole tool, when it’s just the business end you want.

The Alaskan Blade Trader is the perfect choice for hunters. It gives you a big skinning blade with non-clogging gut hook, a sturdy saw blade, and a handy do-everything-else clip-point utility blade. All three blades, plus the comfortable Blade Trader handle, store in a compact leather belt sheath. You can exchange blades with the Blade Trader’s exclusive Quik-Lock mechanism quickly, easily, and safely. The steel used to make each blade is matched to its specific application. And like the blades themselves, each Blade Trader handle is engineered with attention to function and form. Even after years of constant use, the patented Quik-Lock mechanism will securely hold each blade in place. To make the job more comfortable, the non-slip Blade Trader handle is ergonomically designed to reduce hand fatigue. Fixed Blade – The knife does not fold closed; usually stored in a sheath or blade protector. Hunting – This knife is part of Kershaw’s series of hunting knives—for the toughness, durability, and edge-holding capabilities your next hunting trip demands. Scallop Serration – Serrations assist in cutting through particularly tough or fibrous material, such as rope or cord. The scalloped serration offers even cutting power on both push and pull strokes and doesn’t “tear” the material as much as other serration styles. Blade Trader – Blade Traders are knives with interchangeable blades so you can carry more knives in less space. Leather Sheath – This knife comes with a storage and/or carrying sheath. 1 handle, 3 interchangeable blades Skinning blade: AUS6A, satin finish, 4 1/2 in.
