A remake of the ever-popular and sought-after knife issued to the Department of the Navy during WWII, The Mark I features a non-reflective black blade that is epoxy powder-coated and the finish is more durable than ever. Kabar's classic oval shaped handle has been modernized with Kraton G
Kraton G polymers are the strongest, most highly dilutive second generation styrenic block copolymers. Intended for use where UV resistance, high service temperature, and processing stability are essential. It is used as a synthetic replacement for rubber. It offers many of the properties of natural rubber, such as flexibility, high traction, and sealing abilities, with increased resistance to heat, weathering, and chemicals.
Kraton G thermoplastic elastomer handles, epoxy powder coated 1095 Cro-Van steel blades, buff polished edges, powdered metal butt caps & guard. USA tang stamp. MOLLE compatible Hard Plastic Sheath included.
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.
