KA-BAR 1317 Dog's Head Utility Knife 7" 1095 Cro-Van Blade, Leather Handle, Dog's Head Logo Leather Sheath
KA1317: Dog's Head Utility Knife
The most famous fixed blade knife in the World - "the KA-BAR" - was designed to serve our troops during World War II and is still doing its job, with honors, more than 50 years later. The Dog's Head Utility Knife, a close relative of the USMC Fighting/Utility knife, presents an alternative to those who wish to have the legendary performance of KA-BAR's military knives in a non-military setting. Ideal for bushcraft, camping, and hunting, the Dog's Head Utility knife is a welcome addition to KA-BAR's robust lineup. It has added a metal butt cap for hammering and the brown leather sheath features a Dog's Head Pirate logo.

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.
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.
This product is USA born and raised.
