Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
I purchased this knife for use when hiking in our local State Forest. It is a most excellent companion for the woods. Today's KA-BAR is very well made. It is a most faithful copy of the famous WW2 knife. The knife came from the factory quite sharp, I did not have to do any touch-up with a stone.Being retired I spend several days each week in the woods and, the KA-BAR is with me every time.The leather handle is so well designed and, comfortable to use. The knife itself was well thought out by those who designed it.The leather sheath is well made. I replaced mine with another made by KA-BAR that has a plain front. Being that I was not in the USMC, I wouldn't feel right wearing a sheath honoring a most esteemed branch of our armed forces that I did not serve. The plain non-embossed brown sheath is the proper answer for me. I highly recommend this knife for use in the woods.
