I purchased this knife for a friend who one day had mentioned he wished he could have a KA-BAR ! I think it's a really good knife and the price was the lowest out of several places I had searched, my friend was totally surprised and he loves his knife.

I like this knife a lot.can carry it around with no sweat.the handle take a little to gets used to.but doesn't brother anyone when sitting in a chair or car.
Been wearing this knife for a couple of months. The handle makes it different to use, but don't get in way while sitting, holds a pretty good edge. All in all pretty good knife.
Love my new "Army" KaBar knife! It seems to be very sharp, and feels great in the hand. This Fall it will be put to hard usage. The Knife Depot staff were outstanding in helping me get 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.
