KAEK44: Ek Model 4 Double Edge Dagger
John Ek Commando Knife Co.
KA-BAR is excited to introduce the much anticipated John Ek Commando Knife Co. product, the Ek Model 4. This updated version of the old jungle fighting knife is made from 1095 Cro-Van steel and features a parkerized double-edged blade measuring in at 6.45" in length. The textured glass-filled nylon handles are deeply milled for grip and are attached with traditional X-head fasteners and it has an S-shaped guard to prevent you from sliding forward onto the blade. The US-made Celcon sheath is a friction fit design with multiple tie-down points and a nylon retaining strap and belt loop. Every component of this knife is proudly made in the USA and this is both a great knife and a great value.

1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.

Ka-Bar has done an excellent job with this...
Balance is terrific and the grip is very solid. Attention to detail and overall quality make this a steal for one Benjamin Franklin. Good sheath as well and the 1095 is decent steel. I am praying they will release a higher end version of this with a top of the line steel and maybe in Coyote Tan. This leatherneck has to admit that this is Ka-Bar's finest hour yet! I have one for work and one in my vehicle.

Looks like what it made for
Its nice to have this fighter in my knife collection. I got years ago an Original ek 4 model (brass guard, mirror Blade finish, black micarta Handle). This "new" Ka-Bar" Ek is comperable to the original in one main point: Booth are nononse fighter blades that look like they made for- hand to hand combat in the last resort. In such a Situation it would be a pleasure to have one (new/Old) Ek to defend oneself....

s no use in heavy work, only to cut soft flesh, and for the purpose, its really good. Recommend use it as a backup self defense weapon, if u are prepared to use it, and how to use it to avoid legal problems after the incident.

Falling Apart
This is a big knife! It's so big and stout I took it in my back yard and starting hacking a tree limb. A mere few swings in, and the blade is super wobbly and the handles felt very loose. Not the workhorse I was expecting, more of just a novelty. Needless to say, I will never buy a Boker Magnum product again.
