This is an updated version of a knife issued to navy personal during WWII. I'll call the sheath textured black plastic with lots of holes to lash it to anything with a webbing lop to attach it to your belt. It has a buckle? to connect to webbing if you want to do that. It has two snaps to hold the knife in place and while very tight at first they do stretch enough to be a nice fit after a few days. The sheath is A++. The only tiny issue is if you get moisture inside it you need to make sure you air it out good.

The metal used in the knife is carbon steel with a coating to prevent rust. It has a half guard which is all you need. The butt is robust. The handle is hand filling and could be the same textured material used in the sheath. The clip point has a false edge. The blade is a full grind. The spin is as thick as I would wish. The blade came sharp and I noticed no flaws. I've used it in the kitchen and to do some minor cutting etc. I couldn't ask for better.

My conclusion is the knife is A++. If you need a good hunting knife, wood craft knife, or general use knife this knife is ideal. The only bleep is that it is carbon steel and you will need to do the usual to prevent rusting. I guess I might as well add this not is not a cold chisel, pry bar, trowel, or wood splitting wedge. If you pound on it with a three pound hand sledge I'm sure you can destroy it but used sanely I would trust my life to it.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: S U H - W E E E T ! ! !
Ok ... I am a Navy Vet so I am proud and partial.
Truly, though, this must be just about *THE* perfect knife for Texas fixed-blade EDC. This blade is 5.125" long with a 5 inch cutting edge, which is legal for Texas Every-Day Carry (exposed or concealed ... Texas = 5.5" MAX, from handle to tip) and is the PERFECT compromise in length, thickness, grind, profile, weight, ergonomics, safety features and PRICE !
CONS: ? ... NONE (SERIOUSLY!) ... The only improvements, to make this system any more perfect, MIGHT be to make the sheath out of Kydex, rather than "plastic" and to (maybe) add a standard fire-steel carrier ... Perhaps enlarge the full tang from the "pinned-rat-tail" to something a bit beefier. My hands are huge and meaty so, I am glad that the handle is not any shorter.
So, it is not absolutely perfect but neither is my $160 TOPS Brothers of Bushcraft Fieldcraft Knife (which does come somewhat closer to a perfect "total system").
This knife will give you an astounding degree of general utility and it "ANSWERS" a VERY broad range of task requirements ... Moreso than just about any fixed blade system I have encountered at any price (and I have a large collection of production knives).
It is lighter than it looks. With a 5 inch cutting edge of 1095 high-carbon steel, it can effectively baton the largest of kindling and make a fire-board and drill-set, in a snap. It is not long enough or heavy enough to chop but can be employed using expert "bend and slice" techniques (in similar manner as Moras are often used), to fell saplings, for shelters and supports.

I got the MK1 two weeks ago and I must say it's a great woodscraft knife.I had another brand
for twenty years and gave it to my daughter on her frist hog kill.We hunt,fish,camp and hike
as often as possible.Ok now the knife,frist time out for three days a friends son got a nice
buck that I field dressed it stayed sharp.Then I got a 150Lb pig field dressed and skined sti
ll stayed sharp. Made some feather sticks for our camp fire.Touched up blade, smiths ceramic
pocket stone,did food prep with it.This is another life long tool for bushcraft or woodsmen
to depend on.Would recomend to anyone,it's great tool you can depend on lasting for life.
THANKS KA-BAR

This is just a review of my initial impressions regarding this knife. At first touch, WOW!! I've had the similar K-Bar knife the "Short Marine Fighting Knife", for quite some time now and just loved the way that thing performed. Not too big and not too small, just right for an all around outdoors knife. My only gripe to that knife was the thinness of the handle, never really felt hand filling to me. When using it hard it would start to hurt your hand, kind of like a hand cramp because you were squeezing it soo hard to make sure you had a solid grip on the thin handle. Well maybe I had two gripes with the knife (for my uses, outdoors not fighting) was the hollow ground blade, always like full flat ground. Yea these are just nitpicks because like I said earlier it's still an awesome knife.
Now this knife solves all my previously mentioned gripes making this knife in my mind, perfect! Same kraton handle only thicker with a better palm swell, losing the cutout rings for a more light pebble type finish and a full flat ground blade. I have a size large hands and this thing fits like a glove in my hand, the purchase is perfect on the kraton handle and long enough where the pommel is not in the way or obscured. The other difference is there is only a blade side hilt, no double hilt on this knife. This is a plus as now you can use your thumb on the spine of the blade for better control of push cuts, I believe this also adds to the "Fighting" ability of this knife in the Filipino type grip (Kali).
Lastly we have the GRN (kydex) sheath which retains the knife very well and utilizes a snap type of retention on the knife. You can't just rip the knife out of the sheath you actually have to use your thumb to push away and pull to release the knife.
