$297.00

Add DRASTIK BA to your EDC collection. It will surely become the favorite go-to for daily carry. While the handle is substantial, the weight and feel is light and comfortable. With its distinctive S35VN, gladius style blade, carbon fiber and titanium handle, DRASTIK BA will do you proud.

If you’re asking what does “BA” stand for, well, that’s a bit of a contentious subject between the Krudo’s. Louis Krudo will say it stands for “Bad Ass” while Andrea Krudo will say it stands for “Bad Attitude”. Either way, we think the BA knife line is both bad ass and full of bad attitude! Once you try the DRASTIK BA, then you can see for yourself which one it is.

Description

Bringing the ancient into the new millennium, KRUDO Knives’ DRASTIK BA is a precise blend of style that meets practical functionality. Louis Krudo designed the DRASTIK series after the 3rd century, Roman sword. Design always has influence and just as Krudo was influenced by the Roman design, the Roman design was influenced the Spanish and the Celts. Family history has always been a subject near and dear to the Krudo’s and through the DRASTIK series, Krudo tips his hat to these parts of the Krudo ancestry.

DRASTIK BA, and all knives in the BA Line, are released intermittently in small batches of 100 or fewer.  This is according to Louis Krudo’s discretion as the BA Line is a distinctive, new direction in the KRUDO Knives repertoire.
