KA-BAR had several notable releases at SHOT Show this year including collaborations with noted knife makers like Rick Hinderer and Mike Snody. They released a collaboration knife with someone not necessarily known for their work in the knife world – Mil-Spec Monkey (MSM).
The new KA-BAR MSM Knife 001 is a tactical fixed blade for the budget minded user. It is a healthy, 8.5″ long slab of SK5 steel with a black coating and cord wrapped handle. The 3.5″ blade has an aggressive American tanto shape with an unsharpened false edge. The MSM Knife has plenty of jimping for grip and a massive thumb ramp.
The sheath looks very well sorted out, especially for a budget knife. If you know MSM, you know this sheath is going to be MOLLE compatible. It is designed to mount to PALS webbing via MALICE Clips.
