Good morning

I recently got this KA-BAR USA model and I think it's a little short, does anyone have one that can verify that? I found an ad that I think has it, R99, and it's much longer. OAL is 6 3/8", blade is about 2 7/8". Thanks for any help.

You are correct on model Dan. The one you purchased has blade wear, probably a little re-shaping, and heavily buffed. It originally had a 3" blade and although some could have been ground to 2&7/8" the blade looks narrow like metal has been removed all along the cutting edge.
