Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
I've wanted one of these classic KA-BAR knives for a while now, and this lived up to my expectations. The knife has seriously good build quality, the blade arrived perfectly sharp, all the fittings and pieces fit together perfectly, no little burrs, seams or other manufacturing mistakes anywhere on the whole thing.The sheath it came with is real leather, it's well made, but the surface tends to scratch up a bit when you put the knife away, standard leather care products should fix that though.I ordered this from the UK because it was difficult to find this style of knife for a similar price, and it was cheaper even after postage and packaging. It arrived in a couple of days. The only problem I had was an issue with the carrier company (federal express) having to pay some of the VAT, which meant I got invoiced for the VAT plus a fee from FedEx (which was more than the VAT itself) which ended up adding about £18 to the price of the knife for me. Still a better option than what I found domestically, but a bit of a pain in the neck.
