the best knife at this price, imho!
the ka-bar is everything you want it to be. now i want to be fair and overly pronounce it's greatness. quailty is lacking a bit the handle fit to the blade on my version is a bit odd...but nothing so much that affects it's use. blade steel is top notch for this type of knife, imho. it is what it is....the basic quailty is there, but iof your looking for top notch finishing and exotic steels look elsewhere. the design is good, but it is what it is, it's nothing super. works well, but it's a use knife. i put mine throuhg vine cutting, weed chopping, batoned a root system, hacked down small palm trees. it's done them all well and the blade didn't bend over, or go dull. still works great. i sharpened it as i got it as the factory edge is okay for a knife this big, but nothing super sharp. the plastic sheath is pretty good and works well. it's nothing super, but it's decent quality for what it is, and it functions as i wanted it to. all in all a great camping or backyard knife or i guess fighting knife if you had to, but i haven't had to and don't plan on it. this one gets 4 stars as for the price it's a great knife and the materials are good, but the finishing could be better, without that it can't get a 5 star rating from me.
