KA-BAR 1232 Hunter Knife
The KA-BAR 1232 Hunter is a classically designed hunting knife. The blade of 4116 stainless steel is polished to a beautiful mirror finish. The handle with brass parts has leather rings for a comfortable grip. Classically styled leather-handled hunting knives have been popular since the early 1900s. Dressy enough for gift giving and practical for field use. Features a brass guard and aluminum butt cap. Plastic lined leather KA-BAR® sheath is included.
The Brown handle on the KA-BAR®’s Hunter is made from leather. Leather is a durable natural material that has provides years of service on military issued KA-BAR knives.
KA-BAR’s famous oval-shaped leather handle construction is accomplished by compressing leather washers on to the tang, shaping and coloring them, and then fastening them on with a pinned-on butt cap.
The butt cap or pommel is attached to the handle of a knife with a steel pin. The pin is inserted into the butt cap, driven part way though the tang, then ground off and painted.
