The 1317 was designed to surpass the most famous fixed blade knife in the world-"the KA-BAR"- was designed to serve our troops during World War II as their main fighting utility knife. The quality materials used and the classic construction-stacked leather handle, front and rear finger guard with lanyard hole, and pinned on butt cap-is what makes this knife one of the best all-purpose knives. The epoxy powder coated, high carbon steel (1095) full tang blade has a [HRC 56-58] hardness rating.
The full 7" blade is sharpened to 20 / 20 degrees with buff polished edges for better edge retention.
Knife comes with a quality brown leather sheath embossed with the famous and collectable Dog' Head logo.
Sheath is heavy duty stitched and riveted for long lasting durability.
The 1317 is the 2015 version of the legendary knife offering a full size 7" flat ground blade with the original straight edge.
A uniquely designed fixed blade fighting utility knife that is not only a collectors knife but built beyond the original WW II standards.
Personalize This Knife with Custom Laser Engraving.
