Full description

The KA-BAR Short USMC is a smaller version of a legendary fixed knife: the KA-BAR 1217. In 1942 this knife was used by the United States Marine Corps as a standard fighting knife for the marines. Ever since this knife is a part of the standard equipment of many soldiers. The knife is big and feels very strong. The handle is enhanced with a knife guard to make sure you will never end up on the razor-sharp edge during heavy-duty use. The blade is made from 1095-carbon steel. This steel, however, is not corrosion-resistant. Fortunately the blade is enhanced with a black coating to make sure maintenance is a lot easier. The handle is made from stacked leather rings. It feels comfortable in hand, even in the freezing cold.

This 1250 Short USMC from KA-BAR is, in terms of model, the same as the 1217, but only 75% of its size.

KA-BAR 1217: living legend

During the 70 years that the KA-BAR 1217 has been around it became a real living legend. This knife was copied often and many renowned manufacturers produced a version of this model. As such KA-BAR almost became a generic name for this amazing knife. You should, however, never forget that there is only one original: the KA-BAR 1217, made by KA-BAR in New York.

You can carry the KA-BAR 1217 in the included leather sheath.
