Great Knife Reviewed by Lance Medina on Aug 24, 2011   5 out of 5

Perfect for combat and survival situations. I definitely prefer the locking mechanism, but if you want to disable it that would be preference.

Kabar Black Tanto Reviewed by Andy Middaugh on Apr 29, 2011   4 out of 5

This knife is GREAT! It fits the hand niceley is razor sharp and the fit and finish is perfect. It will rust on you so I recomend oiling it and leaving it out of the sheath. Over all an awsome buy! Nice sheath as well though I do not like the locks on it, which are easily disabled!

Best Knife I Own Reviewed by Rick M on Nov 18, 2010   5 out of 5

A lot of people complain about the locking mechanism on this knife's sheath. I actually prefer it. That way I can leave the straps undone in situations where I might need it on the fly. This sheath just takes some time to get used to. Everything about this knife speaks QUALITY. It is NOT Stainless Steel, which doesn't hold a good blade. So if you get it wet, I would suggest drying it off ;-). Otherwise, in combat, I want this knife, and ONLY this knife. Sharp, holds the blade really well, perfect weight, and large enough to scare your opponent. I wish Budk carried the smaller version! And I wish Kabar came up with a pocket sized version too!

KA-BAR tanto knife Reviewed by Ryan Clancy on Aug 08, 2010   4 out of 5

This knife is absolutely amazing, the finish was well done, almost perfect balance, and the sheath it came in is of above average quality. Only a few small complaints, the sheath itself has a locking ability that grips onto the blade, but all you have to do is file down the nuts there and the straps will keep the knife in fine. Also the blade can never be refinished because the bluing process would ruin the grip, but it shouldn't be a problem if you take good care of your knives like you should. Its also 1245 grade carbon steel, but I'm not complaining.
