I'm thinking about ordering a ka-bar hunter. Does anybody have one? The 4" model is what I'm looking at.
No, they are actually Kabars marked Taiwan and some marked China. I bought a Kabar Zombie sword for really cheap on another forum and it comes with a paracord wrapped neck knife. One's marked China and the other is marked Taiwan.I've never heard of a Chinese made KA-BAR, other than Chinese rip offs that are blatantly not "real". Are you sure that's not what your referring to?
I have a folding utility Ka-Bar that is made in China. If you go to Ka-Bars web site it shows where each knife is made. My fighting knife is made in USA.sharpshooter1997 said:I have a ka-bar USMC fighting knife and it's made in USA but this hunter is not.
I have that exact knife. I bought it this past spring for turkey season. Plenty servicable, and I used it exclusively to dress and clean my bird. It's nice and slender in the blade, so you don't have to worry about mangling meat, and it can be used for filleting fish as well.
For $12 more I'd get this US made Buck, this line is pretty much the gold standard for fixed blade hunters...been around a long time.
I have a similar model, longer and wider blade, from the 70's. My uncle gave it to my Dad, then my Dad gave it to me.For $12 more I'd get this US made Buck, this line is pretty much the gold standard for fixed blade hunters...been around a long time.
That's a serious General Purpose knife...sweet!I suppose this would be the one I have, except with no blood groove, and without the black detailing on the bolster and pommel.
