My favorite knife

My dad got me this knife for my birthday and I can honestly say that without a doubt this is now my favorite knife I have ever owned it is sharp right out of the box and it feels great in my hand

Holy Grail of Knives

I spend a lot of time outdoors and always have a knife handy. I have numerous knives but always wanted a Ka-Bar. I am hard on knives and break them often and couldn't bring myself justify the price of an $80.00 knife, since I assumed it would be trashed in a few days, like some of my others. I thought the hype about Ka-Bar was just that-hype.However, I broke down (after breaking yet another, lesser knife), opened up my wallet and shelled out the loot. GLAD I DID! This is the Holy Grail of knives. Solid, balanced, strong and absolutely the sharpest knife I ever had straight out of the box. Fit and finish are perfect. Balance is terrific. I'm a believer in American quality and workmanship and if I had only gotten this years ago I would have saved a lot of money by not having to buy cheaper knives over and over again. I live in a rural area and carry a knife among my gear everywhere I go, and this knife just retired all my other knives. I'll be getting a few more, but the first one has me sold on Ka-Bar quality through and through. The legend about this knife and its capabilities are very true. From now on, only Ka-Bars for this outdoorsman. GREAT KNIFE!

KA BAR just rocks!

KA BAR knife is high quality and made in the USA. Love it. Anyone out there: Only buy American made. Other countries just usually don't have the quality we have here. -Kurt j, Panama City Beach, Florida USA

This is a very solid knife, and came recommended by some reliable people. Good sheath, no looseness in the handle/tang/pommel/guard settings, sharp, everything you could want in a field knife. Much better than the cheap imitations.

Best of the Best

I managed to thieve one of these from supply while I was in Camron Bay. There were a couple of pallets of them in the Armory as I went to get a bolt action shooter. I say I stole it but actually the Sgt just said take one but I ain't gonna do no paper work. So I did. I did burn some black shoe polish into the handle. We did that to anything leather over in Nam. The rain would ruin any leather if you did not KIWI it to death. You melt some KIWI in the can and then pour it on the handle then hold the handle over the candle till it melted in Then you rubbed it with a wet rag till none would rub off. and you did it again and again. It made the handle black and seemed to run into the blade a bit. That knife stayed sharper the all get out the whole time I had mine. I was unconscious when I came back Or I would have brought mine back with me. dray
