KA-1252 "U.S.M.C. Fighting Knife - Short Model" Partially Serrated
The American Legend, Now in a Shorter, Smaller Knife
The perfectly sized fixed blade knife, the Short KA-BAR performs as well as the larger original (KA1217) but is a more practical size for camping, carrying and general utility.
Offered in the traditional leather combination (leather handle, leather sheath)
All Short KA-BARS feature 5 1/4" blades. Overall length, 9 1/4"
Oval shaped handles for comfort
Powder coated, high carbon steel blades
Powdered metal butt caps, carbon steel guards, both powder coated
Sheaths included
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.
