TheKA-BAR 1313SF Space-Bar Knife USSFis a legendary fixed knife. In this case produced by the United States Space Force. A unit founded in 2019 in the United States Army that works in space. No: this is not a Netflix show, the USSF is real.
In 1942 this knife was used by the United States Marine Corps as a standard fighting knife for the marines. Ever since this knife is a part of the standard equipment of many soldiers. The knife is big and feels very strong. The handle is enhanced with a knife guard to make sure you will never end up on the razor-sharp edge during heavy-duty use. The blade is made from 1095-carbon steel. This steel, however, is not corrosion-resistant. Fortunately the blade is enhanced with a grey coating to make sure maintenance is a lot easier.
This 131SF version is enhanced with a Kraton handle. A rubber-like material that offers enough grip regardless of the circumstances. The 1313SF comes with a solid plastic sheath.
