So, is this really the “next generation” of fighting knives? There’s no doubt that it looks pretty intimidating. The next generation might be talking about how scary this one looks.
Ka-Bar’s Next Generation Fighting Knife, hereby referred to as the NGFK, is designed as a heavy-duty, combat-friendly knife. It’s widely used by professionals in high-risk jobs, i.e. military, police, security, etc.
The NGFK features a blade made from 440A stainless steel, corrosion-resistant and cut into an impressive 20-degree edge angle leading to a very sharp point. The top swage is unusually deep, and the blade also comes with partial serrations near the guard. And that “corrosion-resistant” bit means it’s ideally suited for use in wet weather.
The handle is equally tough and corrosion-resistant too, since it’s primarily made out of Kraton (except for the decorative powdered metal pommel). Kraton is an elastomer, and that’s basically a big word for synthetic rubber. It has a comfortable “give” for grip, and doesn’t peel or wear away given the test of time.
Ka-Bar’s NGFK comes in a handy Cordura sheath too, so you can keep it hidden if you don’t want to look so intimidating at first. But we actually did find one un-intimidating thing about this knife: the price. It’s surprisingly affordable. And with all the great reviews we keep reading about the NGFK, we think it’s worth checking out.
