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