Order Details

Designed to serve our troops during World War II, the Ka-Bar is still doing its job with honors, more than 50 years later. During World War II, combat knives were made by many American knife manufacturers, but Ka-Bar's reputation was so strong that this style knife became known as a "Ka-Bar" no matter who manufactured it.

They are still manufacturing the same knife. The 7" Bowie style blade is 1095 carbon steel at 56-58 Rc. with a epoxy powder coating for corrosion resistance and to cut the reflection. It features the same stacked leather handle and steel butt and guard. Measures 11-7/8" from blade tip to butt and weighs about 10 oz. Includes the traditional Eagle & Globe brown leather sheath. Made in the U.S.A.

KA-BAR

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.
