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 and is still doing its job, with honors, more than 50 years later.
The quality materials used and their classic construction-stacked leather handle, double guards, and pinned on butt caps-are what made these the best all-purpose knives manufactured today.
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 U.S.M.C. Marine Eagle, Globe, and Anchor logo and the KA-BAR brand name. It is heavy duty stitched and riveted for long lasting durability.
The #1218 is the United States Marines version of the legendary WW II knife offering a full size 7" flat ground blade with a partially serrated edge section that provides extra cutting power with tough materials such as braided or nylon rope.
Blade is proudly stamped with the U.S.M.C. EGA logo and KA-BAR brand name.
