with one comment

What could anyone say about this classic fighting knife?
I bought it in 2001 and it is still the best knife I have ever owned. So, with no further introduction here is the first photograph…

This is definitely the most famous fixed blade knife ever designed. Each little part of this knife is designed perfectly with high quality for amazingly heavy duty operations. Its blade is razor sharp and can easily stay this way with minor maintenance. Here is a photo from a different angle.

This knife comes in a lot of different models but the design remains the same. The only notable difference is on models that have a small serrated edge but the overall design it’s still exactly the same. Since you can find literally thousands of detailed reviews I’m not going to get into all the details of this knife. I’ll just challenge you to buy one and try it out yourselves. It’s a great knife.

  1. Great article on the Ka-Bar USMC. It’s always hard to deny that a knife is great when it’s been used for over 60 years in multiple wars. Personally I really like the clip point blade and it’s good for camping and hiking as well as defending yourself. Thanks again for the great article!
