Cons: None
Excellent
I find this John Ek-5 knife better than the Ek-4 and better than the KA-bar 1213 or also known with leather handle as the USMC Ka-bar. As mentioned, the tip is more centered. It has better penetration than the Ek-4 (phone book test) . Plus it has a good edge for slicing cutting tasks. The handle is very ergonomical. The sheath I like the way it is. Better than leather. Carbon steel and wet leather don't mix well..

KA-BAR John Ek Commando Ek Model 5
I think this is a very good knife for the price. I liked it so much I bought another for a friend. I don't think you will be disappointed. I only wish it came with a nice leather sheath. I will have one made for mine. COOL KNIFE, GREAT PRICE!

New Kabar EK 5, Bowie
I was in the Marine Corps during the 80's. I liked the USMC Kabar but this new EK 5 model is better. If you get it wet you can remove the handle scales to oil it. The tip profile is more forward pointing yet it still has a little bit of belly. This design seems well planned out and I like it. I got one for myself and a couple more as gifts for Christmas. Seems like it would be a great field knife for general use. It also has potential as a fighter.
