The Kabar 1220 Army fighting knife has over 100 years of tradition behind its functional design. Originally issued to the US Marines this version features the same original design but for the US Army with accompanying blade stamp and tooling on the leather sheath.

Brand new directly from Ka-Bar Knives.

The Blade: Black coated 1095 Cro-Van high carbon tool steel has been saber ground for toughness. A straight spine terminates in a clip point delivering enhanced piercing capabilities while retaining a high level of toughness. The black coating provides needed corrosion resistance while the 1095 can be easily sharpened to a razor like edge. The tang is stamped "U.S. ARMY" on this variant.

The Handle:The tang of the blade is wrapped in a grooved, stacked leather handle in the traditional style. The leather handle offers excellent grip in adverse conditions and when properly maintained will last a life time. A full steel guard offers additional protection from slipping onto the blade while a hefty steel pommel makes the knife very well balanced and provides an improvised hammer tool in a pinch.

The Sheath:This knife comes with stitched leather belt sheath for carry. The Kabar and US Army emblems along with "U.S. ARMY" tooled on the front of the sheath.
