This Ka-Bar fixed blade is the ultimate modern tanto knife. It features a powerful, yet well balanced 8-inch blade forged from 1095 Cro-Van steel, with a partially serrated edge and a long swedge. The Kraton handle has a rubbery high-grip surface texture and is capped with a 12GA carbon steel pommel and full guard. Coupled with a glass-filled nylon sheath, this knife is designed for the toughest of tasks.
Why choose this knife?
The tanto knife blade takes its name and shape from the traditional Japanese tanto sword, originally designed to pierce armor in battle. The front edge of the blade meets the back at an angle, rather than a curve, maintaining its spine thickness almost all the way to the tip. This removes the blade’s belly, but creates an extra strong point, ideal for thrust cuts and piercing.
