Great version of a classic
The classic ka bar shape is a really good one. The size, weight, balance, and edge design of this model are nearly ideal. It is clear that this knife is the result of decades of refinement on a design that works.
The handle is grippy and comfortable, and the D2 steel performs quite well. I think I would have gotten the plastic sheath, though, as the leather one seems a bit too thin and weak for such a macho tool.
