    Very patient and helpful customer service (kept changing my mind ). and still sorted the order which was delivered on time.
    Have put off buying one of these for ages.; thought it was expensive!! Mistake!
    Most of its assets have already been discussed ; it is a well made lovely looking knife with a good sheath (with a drain hole! )to use or for a collector. Sharp OTB ,good in the hand.and not too heavy,and worth the cost.
    I have the serrated version and look forward to using it in the garden for lighter tasks, ( not too light)alongside my hefty nowill knife.

  3. Does for venisonReview by
    Rating
    I bought this knife from HH about 5 years now and it has become my main knife for cleaning up venison. The carbon steel blade does NOT disappoint in terms of quality of construction or ease of use. The partially serrated blade is very usefull and easily seperates sinew from tissue and bone and cuts steak with the gratest of ease. But that is what this blade was designed for (just not a four legged animal in mind).

    It holds an edge really well andcan be shapened with just a few strokes of a diamond rod etc. I have even thrownit in the dishwasher a few times toclean it up with good results. Yes arbon steel is prone to rust but the blade coating helps tremendously with preventing that.

    I have also used thisknife while beach combing for cutting rope and net plastic strapping etc and it does what it is supposed to with minimal fuss. I havent used it for battoning wood but then I havent needed to batton wood with it. If I lost it I'd get annother.

    I've had this knife for about 6 months now and I think it's about time I reviewed it. I bought this mainly as an archery knife but I have used it as so much more. A lot of the time it was just used to dig arrows out of logs, trees and stumps. But, because i loved the feel of it and knew it could do so much more, I found myself using it more and more for random tasks. Whenever i would go into the woods, go camping or down to the farm, i would just put this on my belt and use it for whatever you'd need a knife for. Since then it has dug through pheasant feeders, gutted, skinned and jointed rabbits, taken the breasts off of birds, chopped branches off of both dead and alive trees to make shelter and get firewood. It has then proceeded to strip those branches of twigs and bark. It chops through logs and small trees quite well. It can also baton through logs, which i have done up to 3". But, i would not reccomend this because it is not only a stick tang, it is a 90° angle transitiom between the thick and thin part of the tang which isn't as strong as it could be. i wouldn't trust it to hold up to excessive batoning. If you have to baton with it i would stick to 2" logs to an absolute maximum. I have carved and whittled with this, everything from tent pegs to spoons. I have used it to eat with, as well as cut up veggies and meat for the pot. I also have carved meat. After all of this all I've ever needed to do it strop it and give it a light touch up- in 6 months!! This knife was worth every penny. It is a very capable knife as i hope ive displayed! (Posted on )

    WOW. Ordered Wed morning delivered Thurs morning. Wish HH stocked all the knives I would like in my collection and then I wouldn't have to deal with other knife selling websites that wouldn't know what customer service is if it jumped up and bit them on the backside. HH, 5* for communication and 5* for customer service - keep up the good work! Swithered for a long time about whether to get the KA-BAR with the leather or Kraton handle. As my knives are really for show I went with the leather handle and I wasn't disappointed. I can't really say anything that hasn't been said before about this knife but it looks fantastic, finish is excellent and it was razor sharp otb. Tight fit in the leather sheath so even without the snap didn't fall out when I shook it upside down but I did find the leather handle just slightly slippy. However a must for any knife collection - I LIKE! (Posted on )

    Classic blade, history since 40's
    Very well made, fit and finish is perfect.
    Tough build, super sharp OTB, point is pure evil.
    Good steel, heavy build, practical and good-looking.
    Great for collectors and bushcrafters alike.
    Stacked leather handle and pommel really nice.
    Would advise replacement kydex sheath for practical users.
    Great birthday present - thank you Gemma. x

  9. Built for the veldReview by
    Rating
    I am an ex Game Ranger and still spend a lot of time at home in the Eastern Cape. While there I typically spend most of my time out in the veld and my knives typically get exposed to all sorts of abuse during the course of an average day.

    I chose the Kabar as my bush knife for the same reason I chose a Lee-Enfield as my hunting rifle: they are built to perform under the most trying and hostile environments around. I bought the serrated edge without meaning to and have to confess that the next knife I buy will be the plain edge. The new polymer sheath is also much better than the old leather one.

    My Kabar has never let me down, it is solidly built, holds its edge well, is comfortable to use and doesn't weigh a ton, making it easy to carry all day on your belt. If this knife ever breaks (and it doesn't seem likely to do so), I'd buy another one without a second thought.

  11. Great knifeReview by
    Rating
    I ordered this knife last Monday and it arrived a week to the day today (I live in Ireland) and I was immediately surprised by the quality of both the knife and sheath. After I ordered this knife I regretted it after reading some negative reviews about it across the web saying it lacked quality etc.. but to be honest I was very happy with it when I opened the box as it knife was shaving sharp straight out of the box. It has a full tang which is thin through the handle but if you don't abuse the blade I really don't see it breaking very easily because it feels like a very solid knife. Having said that this is my first knife purchase and I have no experience in this field as of yet but thats just my view on it. Perfect service from Heinnie Haynes... will buy again. (Posted on )
  12. Superb Quality KnifeReview by
    Rating
    Took delivery of the knife this morning and upon opening the black box, I was immediately impressed with this knife. It is a rugged as it feels and has got some attitude behind it.

    The matt black blade looks great and the grip is secure in the hand.

    It was scary razor sharp out of the box and I shaved the hairs off the back of my hand with it.

    This distinctive, world famous U.S Army and U.S.M.C knife is a must have if you are a knife collector or WWII history buff...as there is some serious history behind this knife...seeing service in every conflict with the U.S Army since 1942 right up to Afghanistan today.

    It is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for, a solid, high quality knife, in a high quality sheath...that stinks of leather big time...lol. All sealed in its box from the manufacturers.

    5 star recommendation, you won't be dissapointed, as it's a great addition to any knife collection.

  13. Solid KnifeReview by
    Rating
    I am a proud customer of HH. I firstly purchased the serrated version and was so impressed that I then purchased the plain version. The steel is brilliant, 1095 cro van, great solid steel that is pretty much unbreakable. A fine collector knife also. I have been using the serrated version non stop, ok the black coating will fade but the knife is very workable. Now I know why the US Marines adopted the KA Bar as their official knife. Ka Bar is Marine tested and marine proven. With the great delivery service from Heinnie Haynes, this is a must buy. (Posted on )

    I have finally joined the Ka-Bar owners club.
    This knife is a thing of beauty. Solid construction that will obviously outlast me. When I die I will request in my will that someone uses this to dig my grave or carve my name into the lid of my coffin. Either way, it's a beast!
    It smells good to. Is it weird that I've sniffed the stacked leather handle? No, didn't think so!

    I bought one of these some 15 years ago, fit and finish was superb and the top false edge came sharpened.

    The current version is not quite as nice. Coating seems less well done, fit and finish is not as good and the top edge now comes blunt. This is not HH fault, it's just that Ka-Bar have lowered their game.

    Still a nice knife but shame they are not as nice as before.

    Classic Ka Bar, this rendition brings updated materials, yet retains the simplicity and functionality of the original. The carbon steel blade is extremely durable and holds it's edge well while being easy to re-sharpen. I've taken it out to Iraq and Afghanistan where it has served me with distinction. No task is too tough for the Ka Bar - digging, opening cans, cutting a myriad of material, chopping - you name it, the Ka Bar excels. It is truly excellent value and the best utility knife around.

    Quick delivery, shave-sharp straight from the box, unmatched design and the history of a true classic. Handle is tailored for men with big hands like me. Must-have, really.
    The only weaker point is too tight sheath but that can be taken care of.

    The Ka-bar USMC Utility Knife is an amazing piece of kit. The stacked leather handle is extremly comfortable. The solid butt-cap makes it slightly handle heavy. The pinned tang makes for a very sturdy construction. The guard is strong - no wobble. The blade is light, but has a reassuring thickness. It will need a bit of work with a stone, to achieve razor-sharpness. The defintion fo value for money!!! (Posted on )
