KA-BAR Ek Model 5 Knife

American Survival Guide - - NEW PRODUCTS -

KA-BAR'S third in­tro­duc­tion in the John Ek Com­mando Knife Com­pany prod­uct line is the highly an­tic­i­pated Model 5. This up­dated ver­sion of the oc­cu­pa­tional fight­ing knife with hilt is made from 1095 Cro-van steel and fea­tures a park­er­ized Bowie blade, tex­tured, glass-filled ny­lon han­dles and tra­di­tional X-head fas­ten­ers. An Amer­i­can-made Cel­con sheath with re­tain­ing strap, self-lock­ing func­tion and mul­ti­ple tie-down points is also included. The over­all length of the Model 5 is 12.938 inches, and the 0.154-inch-thick blade is 6.875 inches long. It’s hard­ened to HRC 56-58 and has a flat grind. More than car­ry­ing on the legacy of the orig­i­nal Ek knives, this is a de­pend­able, qual­ity-made work­ing knife. MSRP: $135.95 www.kabar.com
