Ka-Bar Modified Tanto Fighting/Utility Knife Fixed Blade (8" Black) 1266

  • Tough and durable 1095 Cro-Van Steel.
  • 8" non-serrated modified tanto point blade capable of any small or large task.
  • Black Kraton G handles comfortably fill the hand.
  • Injection molded black glass filled nylon sheath with retention strap for easy and versatile carry.


Featuring an aggressive modified tanto blade, 1095 Cro-Van steel is painstakingly ground and heat treated to ensure each knife is tough and durable while remaining easy to sharpen to a hair popping edge. Black Kraton G handles are contoured into the familiar oval shape, comfortable in hand while providing excellent traction and control. Safely nestled between the finger guard and pommel, the Ka-Bar Fighting/Utility fixed blade knife remains secure in hand whether you're in close quarters combat or blazing a trail through thick vegetation. A black injection molded glass filled nylon sheath resists cracking, warping or chipping and with multiple MOLLE compatible lashing and anchor points, carrying your Fighting/Utility knife in the field is safe and secure.

Customer Reviews

A killer knife!
Jorge F. on May 4, 2022

Light, fast, smooth and "SHARP"!!! NOT a camp knife but definitely a knife you can count when the zombie poop hits the fan...

I put it to work!
William M. on Jun 4, 2020

Received this beauty today and put it to work cutting up heavy duty cardboard boxes in which I had received steel garden fencing panels. Went through those boxes like they were butter! This is a winner as a utility tool, and presumably a Zombie killer as well! Plus, it fits right into my Ka-Bar collection!

Very impressive!
Eric L. on Sep 4, 2022

This knife just screams serious self-defense. It’s extremely sharp and of high quality. Not a camp or utility knife. The included sheath is high quality.
