The KaBar never quite felt right to me. Rolls too much in the hand.

The Cattaraugus 225Q Quartermasters knife however, is stronger and has a better feeling grip than the KaBar.

I’ve broken a KaBar (don’t ask) but an old abused 225Q has stood up to all the abuse I can/could throw at it.

The unusual thing about the 225Q, it generally came with a left hand sheath. For carrying opposite a 1911.
