    Are these still sought after? I have searched and don't find a lot of threads about them.

    I would rather have a Holy Terror but I wouldn't turn down a deal on a War Boar

    Last time I had one up for sale (a year or two ago), I got the impression that they were very much in demand.

    I'm still looking for one so I'd say yes.

    Its just odd that there are no threads about them any more. I remember back a few years ago they would pop up but nothing nowadays. Have people just accepted the fact they are hard to find or is it the going prices of them now that have silenced the people?

    In the absence of any available War Boars, you might take a look at Bark River's recent karambit fixed blade. It's interesting.

    I agree the BRKT Ghost2 karambit I think it's called is pretty neat and they will sharpen the false edge for just the cost of shipping I believe. I just got a Blackjack lite-hawk which BRKT makes and it's great just like the other BRKT's I got.

    +1 on this, I picked up a couple of the new Bark River Karambit's when they came out about a month ago. Nice little knife and it comes with a leather sheath!:thumbup: It is smaller than the War Boar though.

    I had a War Boar a number of years back and regret ever selling it! It had a black blade with black canvas handles. I got that one from Skunk's Company Store and remember they sat in stock for a long time. Same goes for some tan AK47's that sat in stock for a long while. Wish I had picked up multiples of each at the time, lol. If I remember correctly, I think the War Boars were around $300 and the AK's were in the $500-600 range.

    I would love to see another run of the War Boars produced! It was very light for it's size, and if I remember correctly, they had a skeletonized tang. I'd be sure to pick one up and not sell it, lol.

    They do also make a kydex sheath for them too I just don't remember which distributor had them a quick call to BRTK would let you know though. But I'd still rather have a War Boar.

    I love me a K-bit. I carry an Emerson combat karambit daily and also have the fixed version. BUT a War Boar is I guess sort of a Grail blade I will probably never own.
