Description:

Since the 1940's, the Ka-Bar Short 5.75" Tanto Fighting/Utility fixed blade knife has been a trusted companion for Soldiers, Marines and Seamen alike. Now with the tradition that more than half a century brings, combined with modern tooling and construction, the Ka-Bar Fighting/Utility knife is ready for the next 50 years of service with our armed forces personnel, first responders or outdoor enthusiasts.

Featuring an aggressive 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 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.

In addition to the Ka-Bar fixed blade, be sure to check out the folding knives that are sure to impress at Blade HQ!

Great tactical option
Bryce P. on Feb 2, 2018

I carried this little guy on my Afghan and Iraq tours.(Airborne Infantry) Perfect size to zip tie to your kit and stays out of the way but is big enough to grab when you need it. The steel is decent and stays sharp for some time and isn't a pain in the ass to sharpen. The blade shape is very useful for paracord and allows you to pry if you really need to. Only possible downside is the top strap on the sheath. I cut mine off and fold the loop behind the back when I zip tie it to molle webbing.
