KA-BAR Full Size US Marine Corps Best Fighting Knife
When thinking of the marines, toughness is one of the first things to come to mind. That same ruggedness blends its way into the KA-BAR Full Size US Marine Corps Fighting Knife, a unique fixed 7 straight edged blade knife made out of 1095 Cro-van steel. The endorsement isn’t just in the name, and as expected this knife comes with a very nice leather sheath and is one of the most popular knife designs in the world. For further reference look at any Hollywood movie where the final fight scene is two guys where the other one inevitably pulls out a knife-yeah, that’s the one.
It’s the original and the true, but many have passed it since then of better quality. The handle is still one of the best in the industry, but the blade itself is not meant for survival beyond the basics. The heavy duty stuff will most likely wear on the blade pretty quick, as it was not built for the abuse that most survival knives today go through. As a backup, it is still good to have around. And as a collector, it probably is already in the list.
