Product Description

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

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 partially serrated edged blade, buff polished edges, powdered metal butt caps & carbon steel guards (both powder coated). Has a USA tang stamp and 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. 

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.

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, toughness, and make the knife easy to sharpen.
