Great camp knife.
Mandrake
It was razor sharp out of the box and is very easy to maintain that sharpness.

So it is made in Taiwan.

I discovered this knife by accident. It was hard to get a clear picture of what this knife was because Ka bar makes at least 4 different knives with the name Warthog.Two are small folders and there is a smaller fixed blade called the warthog.This knife is fun. Built like a cross between the bk2,combat bowie,and the cutlass (all by Ka bar). the thickness of a bk2, the point like the bowie and chopping ability like the cutlass.Heavy duty Warthog is the perfect name for it,because it resembles a warthog.It is not the master of all 3 worlds but I am just trying to give my impression of it.
The sheath is like the cutlass and the kuhkri, leather/nylon.there is a leather strap that wraps around the handle and snaps,no velcro, i don't really like it.Does not look the best but it functions well.
Where the blade meets the handle it is 1/4 inch thick but slims down to the point of the tip. Like all Ka bar blades it is sharp out of the box. The knife weighs about a pound(It is BEEFY). From a horizontal position, resting flat on the blade edge,the blade is 2 and 3/8 inches high. I reallly like the kraton g handle.I would almost say it is exactly the same as the cutlass or Kuhkri but it is slightly different you may not notice if I did not just write it. Kraton g feels like a very hard rubber that is slightly textured. Overall very pleased with it. Paid around 45 bucks for it. happy to have it.

Very impressive knife, mostly for the quality of build. Grip is durable and gives you confidence in the knife. If you want to use for personal defense kinda big for your belt. But if you need to scare away a would be attacker, this will do it, only an English broad sword or Gladius will scare them more. But for hunting and Military MOLLE vest great knife.

The Warthog was a knife I'd had my eye on for quite some time, but I wasn't sure if I'd really like it. I never got a chance to put my hands on one prior to today, because none of the local shops carry this model (everybody has the USMC or Army fighting knife model, it seems).

This thing is GREAT. The finish is very good, the handle is absolutely awesome. More specifically, it is comfortable with just the right amount of give without making you lose confidence in it's toughness/durability. The whole knife is well balanced. Despite being what some would call "chunky", it doesn't feel clunky or cumbersome at all, nor does it feel "heavy," due to the superb balance.

As for meeting a lot of needs, as is the title of my post:

1) Chopping - not an issue. This knife will do its part if you do yours. It chops through anything that you should be using a knife to chop through. I get the feeling it can handle tasks that a knife isn't generally used for, but use common sense when it comes to that (I think it will go through car doors, but you need to think hard about using it for that...do you have a valid reason/need?).

2) Baton work - The blade is 6 3/4" long, so don't pick tasks that require a greater blade length. I haven't tried it yet on medium/larger pieces of wood yet, but I don't think it will have any trouble handling most APPLICABLE sized pieces. In other words, anything that leaves you room to baton the back part of the blade without beating the heck out of the handle (that's not what handles are made for, don't care what anyone says), and still leaves you at least an inch of room on the tip of the blade. Anything larger, and you should be using a larger knife or a different tool. The Warthog excels here because of the thick blade.

For the great outdoors this is a very functional and reliable knife/tool. I would have no concerns taking this knife, and only this knife, out when camping or hiking. This Ka-Bar is designed for heavy duty use and abuse! True, its made in Taiwan but construction is very good and blade is sharp. Heads up, this is a heavy knife! Much heavier than Ka-Bar's fighting knives or Gerber LMF II but this "Warthog" knife is a UTILITY/survival knife and not designed as a fighting/survival knife. Not that I would want to be cut, slashed, or stabbed with the "Warthog!"

For cutting or chopping almost everything in the field from fish to wood this would be a great knife. Good balance with solid grip surface but not designed for small hands. The sheath is leather on the backside and heavy duty nylon on the front with leather straps and belt loop, is well made, and confidently secures the knife. Only recommendation would be a metal butt guard at the end of handle like with Ka-Bar's fighting knives.

Just got the knife. So it is made in Taiwan. What's the difference so long as it is a good knife, and it definitely is. I do not agree with the USA-or-nothing crowd who let blind nationalism cloud their judgement.

People seem too forget that Taiwan is NOT China. On the contrary, whereas China basically uses unmotivated slave labor which results in poor quality, Taiwan is a thriving democracy that exports top notch, quality products. That's actually a primary reason China plots to eventually retake Taiwan. The two countries are as different as night is to day, and it is incorrect to assume that just because they have the same ethnic heritage that their production quality is the same. Maybe some folks are ignorant of the fact that China is not Taiwan. The Orientals were making quality knives long before the USA - centuries longer in fact. Get the Stars and Stripes out of your eyes, look at the knife objectively, and you will see quality that rivals anything Kabar makes.

I have numerous Kabar knives. I like them all. I consider the grippy handle of this one to be superior to all the others with the possible exception of the USMC oldie but goodie. The leather grip of that one is hard to beat though I do prefer this one. The Warthog blade is as good as any and sharp straight out of the box.

This may become my primary hiking, backpacking, general purpose knife; however, with so many good knives from Kabar it is quite the task to figure out which to carry since they are all outstanding. It is hefty but not as much as other reviews seem to describe. Some of my other Kabars are just as heavy or heavier, and the handle of this one makes it easier to use with less chance of slippage from sweaty hands.

The price is truly hard to beat. In my opinion it is most assuredly a bargain for the quality of knife you get.
