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 blade is epoxy powder coated to protect it from corrosion and the 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.
KA-BAR Fighting Utility Knives were designed and built to meet military specifications and use.
Knife is made exclusively in Olean, New York and proudly stamped with the KA-BAR brand.
The knife comes with a quality brown heavy duty leather sheath embossed with the U.S. Navy logo and the KA-BAR brand name. It is heavy duty stitched and riveted for long lasting durability.
The #1225 is the United States Navy version of the legendary WW II knife offering a full size 7" flat ground blade with the original straight edge.
