The only thing my 12 year old Boy Scout son ask of for Christmas was a KA-BAR. I ordered this this knife (Short KA-BAR® #1258) for him. It arrived today, and OMG ! I absolutely love it! It arrived in like 2/3 days after ordering, and it even came though snail mail! Seriously guys, that is quick! I was gonna wait until Christmas, but do not think I can wait that long to give it to him. Its sturdy, solid, sharp, well made, perfect sized, and all around needs more than 5 stars. I will be ordering the full sized "Daddy" version for myself. All around extremely pleased. Thank you guys!
This K-Bar is beautiful and solid. It will shave your arms out of the box. Wear it on my hip everywhere everyday. This is my 24-7 self-defense tool. It does the job perfectly. Small enough to forget it's there. Big enough so attacks will never forget it was there. Period. Buy this knife. ~Nemo //
I love this knife for smaller jobs
This knife is a BEAST, iv'e put it through a lot, and I mean a LOT.Iv'e used it to split wood and cut down tree branches and the edge still holds. It's razor sharp out the box and cuts through, cardboard, wood, and meat easily and is still ready for the next task. This small blade has a lot of power, and will continue to be my go to for uses that require a strong blade.
This is the first Kabar knife that I've ever had. This is a very good knife. I'd recommend itto anyone. I give it all five stars. I predict that I will have it for a very long time.
