Need me a good knife around the farm, how about this Ka-Bar?

Are these legit Ka-Bars on Amazon?

I don't need a Rambo knife, just something heavy duty and durable.
But this price worries me????
Seems pretty cheap to me to be a decent HD knife in my thinking.
Anyone ever bought one of these?
Can you recommend something similar and better?
Even an old used classic similar knife will do me fine.
I just don't want a piece of junk.

ETA: I mentioned Ka-Bar because it was the only name I knew.
I had an excellent general use knife for years, was issued to my dad in the navy, it was a small fixed blade, leather handle, with a Camillus blade with blood grove. I always thought it was a small Ka-Bar but it looked different than the big knife carried by Marines. I think it was issued for general duties on board or something. A real shame I lost it. Maybe I can find one on eBay and get a picture to help me hunt one down?
I'll be back!
ETA AGAIN: I did not see any knives the same, some similar, but not same. Mine did not have any military markings, only "Camillus" on the blade.
It looked similar to this knife on eBay but where you see the markings below mine only had "Camillus."
My knife had a heavy blade with blood groove also. I'm sure it came from the navy, dad was not the type to spend money on a knife.

Hello Realreglarguy,

my personal recommendation:

If in the U.S. available: Glock Messer: Feldmesser günstig bestellen Tools Shop| Kotte & Zeller

The Glock Knive. It ist almost undestroyable and very easy to re - sharp, some say, you need only a Railway track.

I use it since years in house and garden.

I am a real oldschool guy, don´t like plastic in my Cars, at my motorcycle ( old BMW ) and on my weapons. The Ka Bar i love, cause its just steel and leather.
As I first time had a Glock knife in my hands, my thought was "hm, ty plastic. How long will that last? " and putted it away in the drawer. My first choice at that time was the Fällkniven A1. A beautiful, but expensive steel. That was 20 years ago.

Today the Glock is my true friend in my garage - the sheath is durable, the knife seems undestroyable. You can release the knife from the sheath onehanded, and put it back with a remarkable "click", so you know, you will not loose that knife anyway. The knife keeps its sharpness for a long time and is ready for use again with a little water and a whetstone.

If you looking for a cheap but sharp and light knife, try MORA knives. Some of them can swim.

My Moras... cheap but very sharp. The short one is excellent for collecting mushrooms or gutting fish.
