KA2226: Mark I
KA-BAR Knives
During WWII a legend was born, as several companies were asked by the U.S. Government to help supply troops with combat/utility knives. KA-BAR® stepped up to the challenge and their reputation became so strong that all who are familiar with this knife refer to any of its kind simply as the "KA-BAR". The world’s most famous fixed-blade knife is still doing its job, with honors, almost 70 years later.

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
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.
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.

The Perfect Knife
When you hold this knife for the first time, it's downright shocking how natural it feels. The balance between the handle and blade could not be better. Absolutely excellent geometry. Perfect handle size. The stacked leather handle is surprisingly grippy. And it has the sharpest serrations of any knife I've felt. Not as long as it's big brothers the 1217 size family, I think it is still enough knife to use as a main battle knife! And yet I carry it on my side every day here in Canada. It just isn't quite big enough to draw attention to itself. This serrated model may not be as useful as it's plain blade brother, which would make a better woodsmans knife, this blade isn't designed for that type of use. When you feel the serrations, you'll know what I mean! Also, the leather sheath is excelent! If you're a nylon sheathed fan, Kabar has you covered. Simply the perfect medium knife!

Darn good 5 inch knife
I'm very happy with my Kabar USN Mark I knife. It is extremely sturdy. Kabar did a great job with design and quality control, including with the sheath. I love the grip. Very high quality leather and finish. I use mine all around camp-sites and fishing cabins. I don't use it to filet, but it's a great bait knife and a great allround generalist. Mine has serrations, which I like, but without them it wouldn't be a bad hunting knife at all. It'd do a good job on a deer -- of that I'm certain. To be honest, I wouldn't change anything about. Functionally, it's exactly as advertised plus Kabar quality.

Of all my knives, this is my favorite. Over fifty years ago I spent my enlistment in the United States Navy. This knife will always remind me of the " good old days."
