KA2217: Big Brother | Leather Handled Fighting / Utility Knife
This is the "Big Brother" to the standard Ka-Bar USMC combat knife. It's huge! It has a blade that is just short of 9-1/2" and an overall length of almost 14-1/2" Ka-Bar has an honored history: During WWII a legend was born, as several companies were asked by the U.S. Government to help supply troops with combat/utility knives. KA-BAR stepped up to the challenge and their reputation became so strong that all who are familiar with this knife refer to any of its kind simply as the "KA-BAR". The world’s most famous fixed-blade knife is still doing its job, with honors, almost 70 years later. This "big brother" series of oversized combat knives promises to serve our citizens in new ways. It can dig, chop, stab and perform a myriad of chores with ease.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
This product is USA born and raised.
