Customer Reviews

Great Knife
Doug S. on Aug 7, 2020

Love the knife, I have a very old one from back in the day and wanted a companion knife to show the differences. Other than the size it matches and looks almost identical. A real talking point in the collection

Very Good Knife!
Lucas R. on Jul 24, 2019

Ordered this one with a few other fixed blade knives and this one is by far the best. Its got a very good weight to it and fits pretty well in my semi-large hands. Would gladly buy more of these in the future!

Excellent - while it worked
Sean N. on May 27, 2020

Previous to the Big Brother, I had a cheap Damascus Bowie from Amazon, which lasted me two years when the handle broke; however, when I got the KA-BAR, I had high hopes. A friend of mine had owned a veitnam-era Full size and convinced me to buy from KA-BAR, and so I bought this knife. It shipped pretty fast, and when I opened the package, it was a beautiful blade. I put it into use bushwhacking and building a small structure with the materials this knife cut. Anyway, after the shelter was built, we went about making the roof, in which, I was tasked to make supports. On the last one that I cut down, I noticed something wrong with my blade. It had bent 6 Degrees at the handle/tang, this, after only 3 weeks of use really disappointed me after such an incredible job it had done prior. I don't want to straighten it in fear of fatiguing the metal, so now I'm stuck with a knife that might break in two with another use.
