KA-BAR 1280 Combat Kukri Fixed 8-1/2" Blade, Black Kraton G Handle, Polyester Sheath
KA1280: 1280 Combat Kukri
This heavy-duty chopper gets its shape from its older sibling, the Kukri Machete. At about 80% the size of the larger version, the Combat Kukri performs just as well at clearing brush and small tree limbs, yet is a capable tactical knife. Its smaller profile makes it a little easier for toting around - at just shy of a pound, it's a more appropriately sized tool for combat carry as well.
It's tough to argue with the success of the world's most recognizable, time-tested, fixed-blade knife so KA-BAR did what any smart company would do, they didn't change the original design, they expanded upon it. The high-carbon, non-reflective black blade is epoxy powder-coated tests prove the finish is more durable than ever. The classic oval shape of the original KA-BAR remains and has been modernized with a material nearly impervious to sweat, chemicals, water and wear, Kraton G. The improved weight near the tip and kukri design shape lends the design to a much wider array of uses than the original fighting utility knife.

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.
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
This product is USA born and raised.
