Honest/Fair Review With Carry Advice

So to start off, this is a KA-BAR, so I’m giving it 5 stars, even though I prefer my straight edged leather grip USMC version. Anyone who’s owned a KA-BAR will immediately know this will be a knife that outlives them, and even outlives their great grand children’s great grand children (assuming it’s properly maintained). You won’t find a better fighting/utility knife. The quality:price ratio is unbeatable. Are there better knives? Of course, but you practically have to sell one of your nuts to afford them. KA-BAR lets you keep both of your nuts, and you get an amazing personal defense weapon.
Buy with Confidence….Quality Knife

This knife is awesome, it’s even better in person. I was a little worried by some reviews about the knife arriving dull and thought I would have to put in some work; but not mine! It came nice and sharp. The second review that concerned me was about the handle being a little slippery in wet conditions. I thought it was going to feel like a hard polymer, but it’s texture is more like a hard rubber so I don’t expect any problems as far as grip is concern. Everything about this knife screams quality.
I completely fell in love with this knife in under one second!!

Ohhhh my goodness!!!! I just now comprehend the meaning of razor sharp for real. I pass the blade gently on to my arm, and it removed effortlessly every hair on it’s way. When you hold this knife for the first time, there’s an instant recognition of quality and craftsmanship. It took me only a couple of seconds to completely fall in love with this knife. A couple of days ago, I asked a question here about the authenticity of this knife, and now having it in my hands, all doubt has been removed. This is the real deal and do yourself a favor, order one and treat yourself ….

Handle bent 30 minutes into my field test. I was not exceeding the limits for this knife. Must have been a dud. I’ve been collecting knives for 20+ years and have never seen a ka bar bend the way this one did. Almost seemed like it was a fake? Not sure how to tell. My mora companion was able to finish the job when my ka bar failed. Doesn’t seem right to me that a tiny mora would beat out a ka bar, especially with chopping tasks. I am still giving this 5 stars due to the fact the problem is being resolved and the knowledge that these things happen. Ka bar knives are amazing. One dud won’t change my opinion of their knives. I am returning and buying it again. I will review again once I receive it
A wonderful gift for all the guys in your family

Got one for each of the dad’s and step-dad’s in our family. Most of the guys in our family are hunters, preppers, or just into military stuff so this knife makes for a really impressive and special gift. Of course there were lots of jokes about surviving a zombie apocalypse after their gifts were opened, but in all seriousness, this is one heck of a well-built, full tang knife.
Great classic knife, but has a sloppy factory edge that will need work

As the other reviews have already covered repeatedly, this is a great knife.
Best knife I have ever owned!

I absolutely love this knife it is perfectly balanced light weight, heavy duty, and comes sharpened. The handle of the knife is absolutely amazing to hold and has an ergonomic feel that fits into your hand opposed to a grip that is just a circle. The sheath that comes with it is also pure quality. On the blade of the knife it has the location where it was made (Olean New York) and on the other side in big letters USA,1211. It is full Tang with a metal pommel on the bottom which is great for survival. This knife is better than any knife I have ever owned. I have two favorite knife company’s now which is SOG and Ka-Bar which both make amazing knives.

Got this for my cousin as a Christmas present. Couldnt resist so I took it out of the package and swung it around a bit; VERY nice blade and definitely plan on buying myself one. He also loved it and gave me a hug saying it was the best present he’d gotten this year lol; he loves to hunt and fish. Would definitely recommend for an outdoorsy type in your family.

Thing reeks of quality. After examination it is clear why many branches of the military issue it. The butt end is solid metal and the blade is full tang. It is made in the USA. It arrives promptly. The sheath is awesome: you will see many negative reviews about the sheath– don’t listen. It has plenty of strap/string/belt options and has a button strap around the rear-most part of the handle for retention. It also has thumb/finger release little knobby things at the hilt– yes, you can easily pull the blade from those, but if security is an issue, you’d have the button strap locked; if not: the added retention keeps it from popping out while running or hanging or whatever your assassin ass is doing. Buy with confidence– it’ sweet.
