KA-BAR, formally KA-BAR Knives, Inc. manufactures high quality military, hunting, sporting, and all-purpose utility, and outdoor survival knives.
The Crewman was Ethan Becker's original design version as a replacement for the early pilot's survival knife issued years ago. This full tang drop point knife offers a 5 ½" straight edge blade which has been flat ground for better edge retention. The overall length of the knife measures 11".
The knife offers a thumb ramp for added stability when applying pressure, a glass shattering extended pommel, and black Ultramid handles. Includes a MOLLE compatible Heavy-Duty Polyester Sheath with front pocket.
Ultramid is noted for its high mechanical strength, stiffness, and thermal stability. It has an outstanding resistance to chemicals and very good impact strength, making it a great compound for handles.
1095 CRO Van is a high carbon steel used for making knives. This steel grade is based on the 1095 steel, with higher Vanadium, Molybdenum, Nitrogen, and Chromium elements. These elements offer a great wear resistance and toughness. This knife is easy to sharpen.
