Reasonable Fir It’s price
Review by Caelan L.
<span>My husband wanted an additional knife but didn’t want to pay a ridiculous amount. He feels it’s a good knife for it’s price and will serve him well in hunting.</span>

Classic knife comes shaving sharp
Review by Danita W.
<span>I love this knife. KA-BAR is a great company and they really produced a great knife here. This is a very practical utility tool. It’s very much like the 1219C2 fighting/utility knife. I like the fact that the cross guard is shortened on top so you can get your thumb out on the spine of the blade for fine control.</span>

I love this knife.
Review by Jojo C.
<span>Best stacked leather handle knife I’ve found out there for anywhere near the price. Good steel (1095) with a shaving sharp edge. Perfect size, blade shape, and flat grind. Might not work for big hands but ok for medium/average size. Decent sheath. I recommend it.</span>

Perfect fixed blade utility knife
Review by Carah V.
<span>This is much smaller than the traditional K-Bar 7” USMC fighting knife. The blade is 5” and the handle is a good inch shorter than the big model. An adult can easily get a firm grip on it. Fits easily in a bag with the sheath. I can completely see how the Navy picked this as a utility knife in the day for dealing w heavy ropes. It can handle heavy / constant use that folks just don’t do w a knife anymore. It’s an elegant, rugged deign of a different era.<br><br>Solid, tough construction with a full tang and the same thickness blade and the full size model. Leather handle is beautiful. I treated it and the sheath w Sno Seal. Maintain both and they will last for generations. I don’t get critics of the sheath. Nicest leather sheath I’ve ever owned. Much nicer than my uncle’s WW2 model, which is flimsy by comparison.<br><br>It will handle rain and wet as the design has done for decades. It’s not a dive knife. I may break down and get a Kraton handle version for canoe camping.<br><br>Mine was not very sharp, sort of rough grind. Not a big deal, I’ll fix that. Glad K-Bar makes this model still. This is a better tool than the big model as it attracts less attention. Fixed blades are fairly polarizing. It’s not a massive survival knife. It’s an awesome tool for camping, outdoor activities, and emergency use. Large handle that an adult can get a firm grip on. It’s a reasonable tool you can carry in a bag / vehicle every day.<br><br>Love it.</span>
