What an unusual knife. Just looking at the KA-BAR Forged Wrench Knife, you might think that somehow it has been made from an existing crescent wrench. Not so. It is forged and finished in the USA of 425 High Carbon Stainless Steel. Due to the forging process, each knife will be slightly different. The butt of the handle has a round hole, just like a wrench.

The full integral knife has a 3-1⁄8" blade with a hardness of 56-58 Rc. Includes a black hard plastic sheath. Measures is 7-1⁄4" overall. Weighs 3.4 oz. Suggested retail is $62.01. Made in the U.S.A.

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.
