Since the 1940's, the Short Ka-Bar USA 5.75" 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 the iconic clip point 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. Stacked leather handles are bonded together and 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. The embossed brown leather sheath adds to the aesthetic appeal of the knife with secure belt carry.
In addition to the Ka-Bar fixed blade, be sure to check out the folding knives that are sure to impress at Blade HQ!
As a Marine we hold our traditions very dear, and the men who fought before us very highly regarded; this is a good keepsake in that respect and is also very sharp!
