    I'm thinking about ordering a ka-bar hunter. Does anybody have one? The 4" model is what I'm looking at.

    Kabar makes great knives and I'm a fan, but I'd only buy it if it's made in the USA. Try to stay away from their imported knives.

    That's the one with the stacked leather grip, right?

    I bought one a few weeks ago and I was very surprised and happy with it. I took it out of the box and was seeing how sharp it was. It cut a nice patch of hair off my arm. The only thing I didnt like was the cheap sheath that came with it. But that can always be replaced with a nice one.

    That's the one I was thinking of. Is it USA made? Some Kabars are now being made in China.

    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?

    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 have a Kabar fighting knife that's marked USA. I like US made Benchmade knives too.

    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.

    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.
    My only complaint was that the sheath slides around on your belt a bit. I reached for it when I got back from the hunt, and freaked out as it had slid far over on my belt and I though I lost it out in the woods. Maybe a different pair of camo pants with more belt loops owuld keep it from roaming around as much.
