I very impressed by my whole experience with Knife Depot. The knife was exactly as I expected and arrived before I expected. I also had my name put on the blade and am completely happy with the result. I fully intend to order from the company again.
Great knife, strong blade , my main knife. The leather sheath is a1 and this knife comes in the box super sharp, ridiculously sharp. Very sturdy knife and very comfortable in my hand but its is a little slippery.
This is the best knife to add to your collection. It has a super sharp edge and is my favorite knife.
It was just what I needed. I was more than satisfied with the product. Your service was great.
I love it.
The knife if great. Exactly what I expected. The sheath however is a cheesy knockoff of what a good sheath should be. Made in Mexico, stamped with KABAR and USMC....lame. The construction is probably adequate, but it looks and feels cheap. Actually I'd kind of be ashamed to be seen with it. I was hoping for a respectable, plain, solid, hardworking sheath which would complement the same qualities in the knife. So....the knife itself is great, but the sheath sucks.
This is the second BK&T knife I have owned. They are shaving sharp out of the box, and durable as can be. I have no hesitation in recommending this knife.
About Ka-bar Knives
Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.
Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.
He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was "k a bar". The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.
