I heard about the release of this knife in spring and since then I hardly waited getting one. In august I bought it and when it came at my door, MAN, I was soooo impressed. I should talk here 3-4 pages about this outstanding knife, but all can be summarized in one word: PERFECTION. I took it in some bushcraft trips and had some time testing. Anything you have in mind it can stand straight. I have complete confidence in that knife. I highly recommend. Well done Ka-Bar!
I recently took my Big Brother on a 100+ mile solo canoe trip down the Altamaha River. I planned for the knife to be a replacement for a light axe, a machete and a utility knife. It did the job in outstanding fashion. Hacking through small to medium limbs of hardwood in one cut and chopping larger ones better than any light camp axe. The factory edge was great and very very sharp. Even the sheath is of superior quality and will only get better with age. And you just can't ignore the cool factor of having a knife like this on your belt. You're gonna want a tie-down though, it's just too big to let flap around! This is my first Ka-Bar, but it sure won't be my last.
I was able to have the knife engraved right at the factory in Olean N.Y. This knife is a medium to large size weapon and is highly practical for survival purposes. It's built very well in the traditional way they made the previous military fighters.
I LOVE THIS KNIFE! I would sleep with it if my wife let me. I received this knife a short time ago and have fallen in love with it. It's a beast. Razor sharp straight out of the box. A large comfortable handle allows me to easily control the large knife. Sheath is excellent quality however the knife is on the large side so you definitely need to lash this bad boy down. I cannot wait to field test the blade on my next hunting trip! It looks cool too.....cannot forget the look....and its KA-BAR. It's my first, but not my last.
this knife was given to me for Christmas last year and I do a lot of hiking this knife is amazing it can take any punishment where other knives would fail this one excels good job ka bar this wont be the last ka bar I own!!!!
At first I was skeptical, but ended up pleasantly surprised. As I searched on youtube for video of this knife being demonstrated and having found none I put the knife to the test myself. I started with a chop test with a 3 inch flat slab of oak, I chopped at the edge of the oak slab as hard as I could. I had wood chips flying everywhere. Then, I tried a stab test with the flat side of the oak slab. I stabbed the flat side with the tip of the blade until the tip heated up. Then, I used the edge of the blade and slammed it into the flat side of the oak and it cut deeply without getting stuck. Now, comes the outdoor test. I live in Erie, Pennsylvania where it is so cold that trees freeze solid because temperatures fall below zero and this day was no exception. I went down to a wooded area just off of the lake, I found a 6 inch diameter tree and did another chop test. In 7 easy strokes I cut down this frozen tree. I chopped off several limbs and decided to try the serrated edge of the blade. It made fuzz sticks for a fire quite easily. I was also able to do this with the main edge of the blade that I just beat up. I could also cut many materials with the serrated edge of the blade such as, a towel that was rolled up tight, canvas and other like material. To my surprise, the serrated edge after being used got sharper. The main edge of the blade and the tip never dulled. The thinness of the blade in the defensive test made this knife very fast and tactical compared to other conventional knives of this type. In conclusion, I think this has been the most underestimated knife because people take a look at the thinness of the blade and don't think that it will hold up compared to other survival knives. Well it does and I should have known better after all....it is a Ka-Bar!
this surpassed my sog tomahawk. it hit a rock, cut 14 trees of 5" diameter, and on top of it all, was used to split and further more chop and even whittle... the blade is still sharp with no dents whatso ever. thank you all for your work. God bless
