Order Details

In answer to many customer requests, in 2005, Ka-Bar introduced the knives in Desert Tan. For 2007, they have Foliage Green. These knives are based on the well-known Ka-Bar Fighting Utility Knife, and can stand up to the daily tasks of driving stakes, cutting open M.R.E.s and just about any other camp chore you can think of. These knives will serve you well, whether you are in the desert or forest.

The 7" clip point blade, as well as the butt and hilt, are of 1095 Cro-van steel is black epoxy powder coated to make them non-reflective, and they are easily sharpened in the field. 1095 Cro-van steel is a low alloy carbon steel with chrome and vanadium carbides to provide extra strength and wear resistance. Handle is a lightly textured Foliage Green Kraton-G. Includes a matching hard plastic sheath. Overall length is 11-3/4". Weighs 10.7 oz. without sheath. Made in the U.S.A. Suggested retail $128.82.

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.
