KA-BAR Black Fighting Knife -
A combination of new and traditional designs made with high quality materials make this knife perform as well as it looks. Designed to be appealing to the eye and hard working, this black Ka-Bar features an attractive black blade and a black, non slip handle. This knife with a serrated edge was designed to perform like the famous U.S.M.C. Ka-Bar. Blade marked 1211.

Serrated Blade -
A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied force at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut.

1095 Steel -
This knife is easy to sharpen, plain carbon steel used in knife making. It's proven to be one of the most popular steels used in KA-BAR knives.

Epoxy Powder Coating -
A coating process that protects blades from corrosion and also makes them non-reflective.

Kraton G Thermoplastic Elastomer -
Referred to simply as Kraton, is a man made material resembling rubber that can be molded into knife handles. Knife provides a non slip grip.

Powdered Metal -
A process used to make shaped metal  pieces. Fine metal particles are molded under pressure and then fused under high heat. Knife also known as sintered metal.

Glass Filled Nylon -
Material used to make sheaths. Nylon is reinforced with glass particles and other materials to provide strength and durability while still allowing some flexibility. NSN: 1095-01-554-2451 KNIFE-COMBAT

"Really a great knife, I bought one and promptly cut myself with it, and learned that they are increadibly sharp. Serrations make cutting fabrics and almost anything else very easy. This is also by far the lowest price I've seen for the knife. I got my on ebay and paid more for it."

"This is the best knife i have ever owned... I've owned Buck Knives, Kershaw Knives, and a bunch of other knives... This knife has outlasted all of them put together, by far. I have had it for about a year now and its still sharp as hell... I love it and will never buy anything else. If your looking for a knife that wont ever let you down... Search no more..."

"Wow, this is an awesomely thick and strong knife. The 1095 steel 3mm thick blade is great at prying and holding an edge. I don't recommend this, but i used it and a hammer to split alot of wood and the damage was almost entirely cosmetic. This is one knife you can really use and abuse. It definitely lives up to the ka-bar legend."

"This is a great knife, 5 stars. Ka-Bar Quality with a menacing appearance, comes sharp out of the box, holds an edge really well, handle is comfortable enough, serration is great. Bigger than I expected but thats alright with me. Great buy, I recommend it to all"

"This is the greatest fixed blade I've ever owned. Completey comfortable for those of us with sausage fingers - felt like it should've been in my hand since birth. The blade is sharp enough to render the UPS box it came in totally useless. This Ka-Bar looks like it's got an agenda of it's own - all it wants to do is work hard and cut EVERYTHING in it's path to victory. Also - a word on the sheath: It's not the one in the picture, but it's better. No little handguard strap on this one. Instead, you get the classic tactical Ka-Bar pressure locking sheath, allowing for placement on the body almost anywhere. I recommend buying a small length (25') of paracord with this blade & sheath combo. If hanging from your belt, cut a little piece of cord to loop through the bottom eyelets of the sheath and fasten that around your lower thigh. You'll never have an awkward draw again. Similarly, if you make sort of a backpack harness you can wear the blade comfortably between your shoulder blades, with the handle pointing down. There's no way this knife will come out of it's sheath by accident. All around a fantastic product and I recommend it everyone from the stay-at-home mother of four to the big cheese at Delta Force HQ."

"This knife is awesome. Very solid. Extremely sharp (shaves out of the box). Looks great. The sheath is very nice as well. Not sure what previous reviewer was talking about with it scratching the knife.. I have not experienced that."

"I own many different knives but this one definitely takes the cake. It's extremely sharp right out of the box and holds a great edge. The thing I most noticed about this particular knife is how well balanced it is. All in all it's easy to see why nearly every branch of the military keeps a ka-bar on their hip."

"I got my Ka-Bar knife today and as soon as I took it out of the box i could see and feel the quality. This is a very heavy duty knife with an extremely sharp edge out of the box. (it carved up the box it came in nicely!) The sheath is a plus, as it can be used in a variety of posistions without fear of slipping out. USA made and manufactured by a very reputable company out of Olean, New York. Buy this knife, you won't be disappointed!"

"this knife is SINISTER looking, very sharp and the holster is very good, was able to strap it next to my leapers drop holster (low on the sheath) so it has a very positive release and re-sheath of the knife, the belt holds the sheath up and the strap on the lower part of the sheath holds it down, love the setup and the price."

"This is a fantastic deal. The knife is superbly crafted, extremely rugged, and razor sharp. The Kydex sheath is rock-solid sturdy and can be attached to almost any type of of gear or belt with some paracord. Fits the knife like a glove. Placed my order on July 4th and still received in 5 days as promised! A must-have for every camping or survival enthusiast. You won't be disappointed."

"Just as other reviews have said, this knife is fantastic. Its got a crazy edge on the blade, I have used it to make kindling, cooking at campsites and few chores in the garage like cutting 12awg wires and it still has that same edge it came with."

"This knife is awesome!!! Soon as you pick up this knife you can feel the quality. The only thing that could be a problem is how thin the tang is. It's only like half a inch wide so if you throw it (I don't recommend it btw) you might bend the knife at the hilt. The sheath is great too. The only thing that could be a problem is that the strap that snaps around the handle is a little short so you might have trouble snapping it. Oh, and you don't want to get this knife wet, it will start to rust really quickly. (That's carbon steel for you) So you might want to oil it a lot. Overall, great knife by Ka-Bar thats made in the USA."

"I was gonna Buy the Original Ka-Bar W/ the Leather Sheath And it has the Brown Leather handle. I'm So Glad I went with this one Because Not only does it have a Polymer Sheath But it Locks into the Sheath so you don't have to worry about it falling out But it acts Like a Safety I asked my four year old boy to take it out and he couldn't. It's Sharp as heck too."
