KA2221: Mark I | Kraton G Handled FIghting / Utility Knife
It’s tough to argue with the success of the world’s most recognizable, time-tested fixed-blade knife so KA-BAR® did what any smart company would do, they didn’t change the original design, they expanded upon it. The high-carbon, non-reflective black blade is epoxy powder-coated and tests prove the finish is more durable than ever. The classic oval shape of the original KA-BAR® remains and has been modernized with a material nearly impervious to sweat, chemicals, water and wear, Kraton G®.

1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for it's 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.
Kydex Sheath
Kydex Sheath
Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.

Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Superb every day knife
It's not too big, it's not too small, very sturdy blade but not too thick, handle feels amazing especially if you have bigger than average hands. All around a great day to day utility blade that is still plenty of knife if one needed to defend themselves from an aggressor or wild animal. i'm not crazy about the sheath, it has great retention, but the belt loop seems kind of chinsy to my but that is nothing a strip of leather and a few rivets cant fix.

Great Quality Us Made KA-BAR Knife.
Purchased this for a Retirement gift for a long time co-worker. Had both sides of the blade Laser Etched with dates of service and his rank. Also Department Units he worked in. Plenty of room on the blade for Etching. Looks great for display and he could use it during hunting season.
