Yes, the Ka-Bar's blade length allows it to reach the heart from any point of entry on the abdomen that is less than one blade-length away from the heart. It's pretty revolutionary.
Of course I meant length bro. That's part of the design mang!

Not that any of those features are important in day to day life, but it was and is a fighting knife by intent.
If it's scimitar blade your into...
Dang! When did cold steel get so spendy?
The space between the scapula and clavicle is a more direct route, but you get the idea.

I've always wanted this weapon
Probably one of the most effective weapons ever designed, epsecially if you got buddies wielding them with you.

for the sole act of killing things. (Insane as that is) I would go for something like this Buffalo river pig stickers.
basicly it is used for stabbing wild pigs to death.

I wouldn't show up to a deployment with something like that. Really, something with about a 5-6 inch blade will do you, especially in today's AO. Anyone packing a Rambo knife is usually pegged as "that guy" early on.
Stop being pussies and just forge your own.
The MOD Razorback was designed with this in mind.
