KA-BAR 1220 US Army Fighting Knife
This knife is KaBar through and through. The blade quality, handle material and sheath are all typical KaBar. I use this knife on a weekly basis and the blade has stayed as sharp as the day I got it from Knife Center. While this knife would be a great defensive tool, that is not my reason for purchase. I've cut tree limbs, tough rope and large vines on my property. I've two son-in-laws, one former Marine and one former Army and have purchased the appropriate knives for each of them as well. These knives will last a lifetime and I'm very happy with my purchases.
