KA-BAR 1217 Full Size USMC Fighting Knife 7" Plain Blade, Leather Hand
BEST KNIFE I HAVE EVER OWNED. I love that it came hair cutting sharp and how there isn't a loose end anywhere. The leather sheath is great, it is a very well made strong sheath. I use the knife for bush craft and well for protection if needed. that's what in my opinion makes it great. It will do anything you need to do. VERY STRONG KNIFE. The handle is great and feels good in the hand. The black coating helps from rust which is a big plus. All in all a very good knife and worth the money. I tested many things about the knife in a bush craft style. Works great in every way. I can see buying again from this company.
