having spent 13 years in the military and spent so much time in the wilderness, i've found this to be the best knife. the little extra length of the blade offers a little extra chopping power. the full tang of the knife will toss away any worries you might have of the blade breaking from the handle. i would recommend not using the knife to pry too much though since it is a bit longer than a standard blade. the spine is geometrically reinforced to make it pry if needed however. the long cutting edge gives the user a serious advantage to skinning an animal, sheering a plant, or giving you that little extra range you need. the handle has a rubberized grip to make it really stick to the hand making it more easy to handle. the butt cap seems to be pretty solid and reliable to do some hammering if need be. having a wider spine than the cutting edge, the knife makes a good wedge if you hammer a heavy stick on the back side of the blade to chop through wood or other materials.

in a fighting situation, the knife has the added notch to aid in a lock during close quarters locking moves. the curve of the knife tip makes for a good bowie slasher but has a nice angle similar to a spear point, making a stabbing strike much more effective ensuring deeper penetration.

the design of this knife is nothing short of amazing. good job Ka-Bar!

I looked at dozens of knives before I chose this one. It was one of the only ones with a solid, flat butt that could be used as a hammer if needed. The partial serration is great for cutting fibrous materials, and the grip feels natural in my hand. The blade is a little bigger than I would like, 7" would be better. I looked at the 'short fighter' knife, but the grip was too small for my hand and I didn't feel like I had good control. I was surprised at how sharp the factory edge is on this knife. The Kydex sheath doesn't come with this model, instead it has a nylon/leather sheath. I can't say yet how this will hold up to the elements, but I wish it had another tie-down on the blade end. It's easy enough to make one, however. Overall, this is everything I expected it to be!

Looks to be a great knife. I have yet to put it through it's paces, but I'm impressed so far. Out of the box the blade is razor(seriously) sharp. The handle is very comfortable and it has a good balance. My only reservation is with the sheath, seems a little flimsy. I would prefer a kydex sheath, but don't think a factory one is available yet. This one won't fit the other model sheaths as the blade is wider. overall, I'm very happy with it.

DURABLE! Ready for ANYTHING any of you will throw at it. I punished this knife at home for over a year in ohio; then it went to Jamaica with me on my camping expedition. This knife went with me EVERYWHERE, it came into the saltwater with me when I spearfished and maintained all of its integrity even when stored in the salty sand it could slice tomatoes the next morning. And these conditions of torture were repeated on the knife day in day out for six months. A TRUE SOLDIERS KNIFE

This knife is a serious beast! The photos do not do it justice, and with all the other Ka-Bar knives on the market I feel this one gets lost in the shuffle.

SIMPLY AMAZING. After a final touch-up on my Spyderco Sharpmaker, which is a must have if you own any Ka-Bar, this knife is "Scary" sharp.

I would hate to be forced to use it to defend myself, but rest assured it WILL get the job done!

much cheaper here than other places online i checked. i couldnt find this one in any stores in my area. overall the knife is great!! i couldnt be happier with it. the blade holds an edge well, is well weighted for light chopping and the handle is great quality. i wish it had an all leather sheath but the sheath it comes with is pretty kickass. the guard is thick and good quality. i have an original kabar and it too is amazing but personally i like this one better due to the wider blade and and serrations. all in all i would say get it and for the price nearly half off other sites, its definately worth it

Perfect combination of balance, size and fit. This has become my favorite general purpose survival blade. Sharp right out of the box and for the price as good or better than any full size combat knife I own.
