I spotted a decent price for the KA-BAR big brother I dropped the hammer. It is literally a bigger version of the USMC fighting knife it arrived very sharp I was able to chop through medium branches no problem and it kept its edge. My KA-BAR USMC fighting knife and the KA-BAR big brother are on my BOB list. KA-BAR Knives, Inc. - Knives > All Categories > Leather Handled Big Brother - Hardcore Lives. Hardcore Knives. Designed in cooperation with the highly-trained folks at S.E.I.G.E. (Strategic Edge Impact Global Enterprise) of Webster, NY, the newest additions to the always impressive leather handled KA-BAR line include the "Big Brother" - a 9-3/8 inch blade designed for a lifetime of hard work and constant use. Please note, due to state regulations KA-BAR cannot ship the Big Brother knives to CA or MA. Made in the USA.
