Description
KA2225: Mark I
KA-BAR Knives
 
During WWII a legend was born, as several companies were asked by the U.S. Government to help supply troops with combat/utility knives. KA-BAR® stepped up to the challenge and their reputation became so strong that all who are familiar with this knife refer to any of its kind simply as the "KA-BAR". The world’s most famous fixed-blade knife is still doing its job, with honors, almost 70 years later.

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for it's extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

Almost perfect
Love the blade pattern. Wish the handle was about an inch longer. Easy to get razor sharp and retains edge well. Great Knife.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Interesting purchase
I bought this knife to use as a utility knife when I was in the woods. It arrived wicked sharp and has been a pleasure so far. I look forward to having it on my hip for many years to come. It feels pretty good in my hand, large hand that is. The full sized brother fits better, but I wanted something a little shorter and this seems to be doing just fine.

Simply Perfect
This is a beautiful knife that's perfect for hiking and fishing. I bought this knife because I wanted a decent sized fixed blade that also looks good on your side. This definitely fits the bill.
