The Brown handle on the Full-size US NAVY KA-BAR®, Straight Edge is made from leather. The leather is a durable natural material that has provided years of service on military issued KA-BAR knives.
KA-BAR's famous oval-shaped leather handle construction is accomplished by compressing leather washers on to the tang, shaping and coloring them, and then fastening them on with a pinned-on butt cap.
The butt cap or pommel is attached to the handle of a knife with a steel pin. The pin is inserted into the butt cap, driven part way through the tang, then ground off and painted.
