The KA-BAR Fighting/Utility Knife is the current version of the iconic knife that has been on the hip of warriors since 1943. As American as the 1911, KA-BAR hasn't changed the design but has updated materials to better serve modern warfighters. The KA-BAR Fighting/Utility Knife of today features 1095 Cro-Van steel which is an extremely tough steel that can handle serious use and keep on performing. 1095 Cro-Van will take and hold a very sharp edge and the Kraton G handle provides an excellent grip in all conditions. The hard polymer sheath protects the blade in all conditions.
