In the early 1980's, Ethan Becker, an avid outdoorsman, founded Becker Knife and Tool, focusing on the large tactical and survival knives he had always wanted for himself. In the late 1990's and early 2000's, Camillus Cutlery, no longer in business, produced some of his most popular designs. In late 2008, Ka-Bar® began introducing some of those same designs. The Remora is one of those designs.

The Remora features a 2-1/4" modified drop point blade available in 440A stainless steel with a rockwell of 55-57. Includes a black glass filled nylon sheath. Measures 5-1/8" tip to butt. Weighs 1.1 oz. Knife made in the USA, sheath made in China. Suggested retail is $51.44.

  • Origin


Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.

He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was "k a bar". The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.

KA-BAR is best known for their military production knives. They were chosen by the U.S. Marine Corp. as the primary knife producer for World War II. They also have traditional pocket knives, as well as many options for law enforcement.
