Order Details


In a post on April Fool's Day 2019, Ka-Bar announced that they had signed on as the "Official Knife of Space Force". The post went viral. The United States Space Force is now an official branch of the U. S. Military. While the name has not been licensed to any company, Ka-Bar has successfully registered the trademark "USSF" for use on knives. They have just introduced three Ka-Bar knives with that mark. One is the Corser, a lockback folder with a grey powder-coated tanto blade and a bright blue molded GFN-PA66 handle.

The 3-3/8" blade is AUS-8A stainless at 57-59 Rc. The grey coated tip-up carry pocket clip is reversible for left or right-hand carry. Measures 4-1/2" closed. Weighs about 3.2 oz. Made in Taiwan. Suggested retail is $46.76.

  • 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.
