Description: This Military-style field knife is the work of Pabu Knife. Pabu Knife headed by Pardi Bugtai is a small Filipino-American family operaton that was based out of Portland, Oregon. Pardy relocated to his home town of Liloan, Cebu in the Philippines in 2012 and continued producing knives. Pardy made his first knife back in 1960. He moved from the Philippines and made knives in Portland, Oregon from 1982 until 2012. He was a member of the American Blade Society and for a brief time, he also did contract work for Remington Knives. Pabu Knives made all types of knives, from field use fixed blades to Balisongs. This field knife was kept in a private collection since it was made. Other than a few minor hard to see scratches on the blade, it appears to be in brand new condition.
Pabu Knives was known for using forged tool steel for his knives. This knife is most likely carbon steel based on the time period the knife was originally purchased. The blade features a satin finish with a hollow ground primary bevel. The Pabu knife mark is used on both sides of the blade. The electro-etched mark on the left side is not fully marked. This was not unusual and likely dates back to when the knife was originally made.
The contoured handle combines natural Micarta with stacked leather. The handle provides a comfortable non-slip grip with no hot spots. Red and white fiber spacers add a touch of color to the handle. This knife is very reminescent of the Remington style field knives.
To keep the knife close at hand, a tooled leather sheath is included.
