    Comments about KA-BAR Knives, Inc. Short U.S. Fighting Utility Knife:

    The baby K-Bar was originally purchased for my military knife collection. I found that with it's lighter weight and slim profile, it was an easier carry than the full-sized model. Due to it's size, it's excellent for hiking / day trips and does not need to be taken from the sheath when driving.

    The powder-coated blade is hard to sharpen, but does carry an excellent edge if you have patience. Away from the knife itself, the enclosed sheath is of thin leather which wore and tore quickly. Still, it's a quality product worthy of ownership.

    Comments about KA-BAR Knives, Inc. Short U.S. Fighting Utility Knife:

    Great knife, my only complaint is the size (think glorified steak-knife), but that was the only KA-BAR in my price range so it's only a small complaint. It's perfect in almost every other way.

          • Q:

            does the knife rust easily? does the leather crack easily? will it be sharp enough to dress animals many times before sharpening again?
            Asked on 10/14/2009 by Anonymous

            1 answer

            • A:

              If kept clean and dry after use, this knife will not rust. Leather is leather. The harder used the more it cracks and rips. For leather this is pretty good.
