KA-BAR, formally KA-BAR Knives, Inc. manufactures high quality military, hunting, sporting, and all-purpose utility, and outdoor survival knives.

The Tanto blade shape, of Asian influence, has a thick pointed blade that is rugged enough for the most difficult tasks. A partially serrated edge makes cutting looped and synthetic materials a breeze.

A compact, stout tanto blade is fiercely rugged and appropriate for piercing through the toughest materials. The tanto is a sword but is used as a knife. The blade is single or double edged. They are characterized by an angular, almost noncontinuous edge made up of two cutting planes. The edge draws a line out from the handle before making a hard change of direction and running to the tip, resulting in a striking appearance and broad, durable point.

These practically sized fixed blade knives are the perfect size for camping, carrying and general utility. Kraton G thermoplastic elastomer handles, epoxy powder coated high carbon steel straight edged blades, buff polished edges, powdered metal butt cap & carbon steel guard (both powder coated).

The "USA" marking has been removed and you may receive a knife without this marking. Only the marking has changed; this is not a change to where or how these products are made. Includes a glass-filled nylon (hard plastic) sheath.

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.

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.
