Ka-Bar Short Tanto - excellent knife!
The Ka-Bar Tanto exceeded my expectations. It has a VERY sharp edge and has held that edge despite a few camping trips where it was used for everything from shaving tinder to batoning kindling. Despite the treatment, it's good as new. Kydex sheath is well worth the few extra bucks...it's well designed and has great retention of the knife. It's a high quality, made in USA, knife for an outstanding price. Well worth 3 times as much and holds and edge better than my +$100 knives. Size is perfect for a take everywhere knife. Perfect for my flight bag on the wilderness flying trips.Best knife I've ever purchased for what I needs and uses. Who says you can't get a quality US-made knife for a good price anymore?
