Would like to know some kind of standard specs on KABAR

Spine thickness
length and width of fuller and location from guard and from spine.
depth of blade
Dimensions on butt cap
Dimensions on guard

A site with complete specs would be nice

Ex-Marine and want to make one from damascus for a Marine in the family

Thanks

Here's a link to a good pic with some dimensions . You can probably figure out the rest with a ruler .. https://www.kabar.com/product_detail.jsp?productNumber=1217

Thank you very much Exactly what I need. Jim

I had trouble reading the print on the posted drawings, but, the ones at Georges link show up fine. I will post my rendition when finished.

The shoulders they show in that drawing are straight 90 degrees.


You are going to want to round them out as much as you can or they can be the starting point of a crack.

Will radius the corners where tang meets the blade of course.
