I was in the Corps during the 80's. I liked the original but this new design is simply better. If you get it in water you can remove the handle scales to oil it. The tip design is also a major improvement, much more straight forward pointing. I just got it so I haven't had a chance to put it through hard use. I hope the steel/heat treatment is good. Good job Kabar, you've got a winner here.
I just received the knife and am extremely happy with the way it feels in the hand. Takes some working in of the retention clips. Just a little stiff but I'm sure it will break in. Makes me proud to own a piece of history. A reminder of all that sacrificed everything for our great country.
