    Hey everyone​
    I'm very new here and this may be in the wrong place. I've been searching for a 1264 tanto, plain edge for awhile now. I'm more than willing to pay the price for it, as I know they are fairly rare. If anyone is interested in selling or trading let me know and we can work something out. Also, let me know where a better place to post this, I can't post in the sale forum.

    I have one, in perfect condition, box and sheath included.
    Problem is, I live in Europe. I suppose you are in the US, right?

    Might want to take this discussion to emails.. It's against the rules to sell and such without a proper paid membership. :thumbup:

    Good luck! I searched long and hard for this. Finally found one on the bay.
    The same day it ended a NIB popped up on the exchange that I couldn't pass up. It's a great user, feels real nice. Hope you find a user!

    That tanto design looks a bit more "durable" that the other ones used on the fighting utility.
    Any idea why it's so rare/why they don't make more?
    It must be the drop on the point. 1095 crovan is tough stuff, and anything made out of it is going to be good, and when heat treated by Kabar...
    I just think that a dropped tanto point like this one would appeal to a broader crowd that the more familiar pattern.
    Agree? Disagree?

    Whenever Kabar (or any other manufacturer) discontinues a model, the reason is ALWAYS economic.

    If a model doesn't sell or quits selling for some reason, major companies don't usually try to figure out "Why?", they just cut their losses, dump the remaining inventory in the clearance aisle and move on.

    Some models of product "X" sell like hotcakes for a long time, then sales start dropping off as customer perceptions change. Sometimes a model is popular for a while and then it hits a wall and sales virtually stop. When sales drop off. either major overhauls are required, or a new option is run out. With knives, new options are usually win the day.

    Well, I figured as much, but I'd think that a dropped tanto would be better in general for knifey tasks, and still be car-hood approved.
    But I guess, the majority ruled with their wallets.
    Same thing has happened recently with several Becker models.
    Just because the public doesn't buy up a particular design doesn't mean that the model isn't any good.
    I guess it's a good thing for collectors.

    I love my 1217, I carry it every time I go anywhere that allows it. I want to find a decent cross draw style sheath for it. To answer the question of why, it's because I can.

    I also think that the 1264 style tanto just look better than the "katana" style blade they make. It looks more aggressive and durable.
