This thing is tough

A couple weeks ago I needed to chop down a tree so I used this knife and it's still sharp to this day. I've had it for over a year now and I could shave with it- it's that sharp... I had to sharpen it to get there, but once you do this is comparable to a KA-BAR for a fraction of the cost. Maintain it and this will be the best knife you own.

Great Knife

This knife is excellent, I carry mine with me as part of my EDC along with my pistol. You won't be disappointed. Arrived very sharp and sheath is durable enough for EDC, (every day carry) if you are wondering. All and all 5 stars, Budk is great!

Better than I expected

I ordered one of these knives during a $10 dollar sale. I had read a lot of reviews that were very critical of these. Seemed like most of the complaints seemed to be about the bolster pins falling out. When mine arrived, everything seemed well put together and tight. Just to be on the safe side, I filled the openings in the bolster with crazy glue, till no more would soak in. It is a very nice looking knife and arrived reasonably sharp. I sharpened it up the rest of the way very quickly. I have an original Kabar knife, and this knock off looks much like it. The sheath seems sturdy enough (surprisingly so for such a low price). If it falls apart, I may replace it with a replacement Kabar sheath. All in all, it seems to be a great value for the money.

Very Nice

Very nice knife. I ordered two knives both very good. The blade gets razor sharp. Great knife to carry on you or to add to your collection. One of the BEST and COOLEST knives I have.

Real review from a real guy

Very nice sheath. Better than what was expected. The knife takes a edge well. I have hit it against wood and chopped it up and it retained an edge. I mostly have used it for cutting bailer twine so i haven't really abused it like my other knives but will go in the woods and try it out some. I have not tried the stone but i did use a regular sharpener. I got it almost razor sharp. I give this five stars.

A Great Value!!

No, it's not a Ka-Bar. It's not $80+ either. I just ordered another two. I own a genuine Ka-Bar. Nice knife. So nice I don't want to abuse it. But BUDK's 1942 knife above is a solid 5 stars. I'll tell you what I received: A real leather sheath. I'm in Texas, there's cattle outside, I know leather from plastic. It smells and tastes like leather (see what I will do for you guys?). The sheath itself is well worth the price I paid for the knife. The Knife: A good knife. 420A stainless steel, full tang, standard rat tail. Handle. Stacked leather discs, epoxied/glued. SOP. The black grooves on the handle do seem to be some type of plastic. Doesn't hurt a thing. So if you'd like a Genuine Ka-Bar buy one right here on BUDK item # KB1217 for $83.99. But if you want a really good budget knife to stomp around with and abuse, buy this. I did. Twice.

Ka-bar knockoff, but not too shabby

The blade came to me in pretty good condition, with a moderately sharp edge. I sharpened it up to paper cutting then tried it out. Cheap stainless steel has nothing on the 1095 high carbon steel that ka-bar uses but it's still okay. As to how long the blade will last id have to say that largely depends on how hard you are on it. It won't last a lifetime. It won't last a month of good use, but it's a decent cheapo knife that you can just throw somewhere for an emergency and forget about it
