KA-BAR knife

by Bill, from United States, TN Written on September 5, 2014
I have been wanting a KA-BAR for quite a while. I finally pulled the trigger when I found them here at Optics Planet. Shipping and ordering was fast and the customer rep. I dealt with were fantastic. The knife I ordered (1214) was not my first choice, but the leather Marine Corp. version was not in stock, so I went ahead with this one. Not disappointed at all. Craftsmanship is excellent, finish is even and flawless. The edge on my knife right out of the box is extremely sharp and uniform. If you've been thinking about getting a KA-BAR knife, my opinion is go for it. Made in the USA, and a legendary reputation for well over 100 years....

There are very few things that allow you to own a true piece of history. This alone puts the KA-Bar knife in a class above others. Talk with any WWII, Korean, or Vietnam vet and they will tell you about the KA-Bar knife and how it never failed them, you may even be surprised to learn how many the different ways these veterans have used their knives.

I had not held one of these knives since 1970, but when I took my knife out of its box I felt like I was greeting an old friend. I could find nothing that had changed over the years. Certainly the quality of the knife is every bit as good as it was 43 years ago. The hefty blade still gives one the confidence that this knife will perform the tasks you ask of it, within reason of course.

The handle is every bit as comfortable as I remember allowing the owner plenty of leverage when cutting or thrusting. The only con (and it is a minor complaint) I could find is that although very sharp the cutting edge is rough and not well honed. This criticism can quickly be overcome with a little work on a very fine stone, followed by a few minutes on a leather strop.

All in all this is a very fine knife and one that you would be proud to own. KA-Bar has shown its ability to take on tasks in the harshest elements and with the companys reputation on the line there is nothing in their new knives that says you will be disappointed.
