For a long time I wanted a Ka-Bar combat fixed blade. I was watching a CajunBlaze video on one and in the comments someone said something along the lines of his SOG Seal Pup Elite being way better than the Kabar. Mainluly because it would cut his finger to the bone If he ran his finger across it . In my knife newb ways, I was impressed by this, and the tactical marketing, so I bought one of those instead. Well it wasn't very sharp and I came here to learn how to sharpen it. It was all down hill from there.
