KAEK44: Ek Model 4 Double Edge Dagger
John Ek Commando Knife Co.
KA-BAR is excited to introduce the much anticipated John Ek Commando Knife Co. product, the Ek Model 4. This updated version of the old jungle fighting knife is made from 1095 Cro-Van steel and features a parkerized double-edged blade measuring in at 6.45" in length. The textured glass-filled nylon handles are deeply milled for grip and are attached with traditional X-head fasteners and it has an S-shaped guard to prevent you from sliding forward onto the blade. The US-made Celcon sheath is a friction fit design with multiple tie-down points and a nylon retaining strap and belt loop. Every component of this knife is proudly made in the USA and this is both a great knife and a great value.

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.
Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.

Pros: Blade Material, Materials, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Solid build
To date I have not used the knife in any practical application. Therefore, I selected 4 stars as I don't believe I can offer more without using the knife. First impressions of the knife are excellent. The build looks and feels very solid and sturdy. The grip feels "grippy" and the notching in the handle pattern should accommodate wetness effectively (e.g. sweat). The handle is long enough for big hands yet narrow enough for medium ones (not sure about how small hands will do). The weight offers substance without being overwhelming, thus allowing dexterity. Overall, it appears and feels to be a solid performer with a nice balance of weight and dimensions.
