KA-BAR Fighting Knives are an American legend and used by US and Australian forces in every conflict. They've proven their battle readiness and are as solid as the countries they have defended!
First issued by Ka-Bar in 1941, this legendary blade was submitted to the United States Marine Corps, after the start of World War II, in hopes that it would become general issue to that branch of the military. After working closely with the Marine Quartermaster Department, revisions were made to the original design, and production began on this improved Ka-Bar knife for the Marines.
It was during the height of World War II that this legendary fighting knife became so widely recognized for its quality, and so abundant in number, that "Kabar" quickly became the accepted name by which many referred to this knife pattern, regardless of whether or not the knife was actually manufactured at the Ka-Bar facility.
The illustrated KABAR knife is the KA-BAR Tanto Knife that features an 8" part serrated 1095 Cro-Van high carbon steel tanto blade with epoxy powder coat. Oval Kraton G thermoplastic elastomer handle with powdered metal butt cap and carbon steel guard (butt cap and guard are powder coated). A hard plastic sheath is included with this KABAR Knife. The KABAR Tanto Knife has an overall length of 12 7/8", and it weighs .75 pounds.
