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.

Pros: None
Cons: Handle Material, Overall Quality
LIKe everyone says it gets loose at handle. As soon as I took it out the box and saw it said Taiwan, I was upset and knew it would be trouble.

Nothing to ad!!!!!!!!!!!!
Exactly the same happened to my one made in Taiwan!!! Steel is not that bed by the way. I like how it fit either.

Cons: Finish
Loose Blade !
After apx 5 minutes chopping into a very soft, fresh cut tree limb the blade became loose at the point of where it enters the handle. Is this a manufacturing flaw? VERY disappointed with KaBar on this one. It has put me off buying further KaBar models.
