Ka-Bar Knives

My son is a avid hunter. He loves it it's high quality and has a great edge and is affordable.

Well made sheath but it did not fit the knife I had planned to place in it.

Very well made sheath and my 50 year old USMC issued KA-BAR knife has a new home.

Ka-bar wanted to design a fixed blade knife that had balance, a great feel in the hand and was indestructible - THEY DID ALL THAT & MORE!

It does everything i wanted it to gardening branch trimming stubborn plants. I'm an 81 y/o lady living in Florida and have woods all around my house and do my own gardening and seldom use pruning shears anymore.

Creek Stewart recommended this as one of my knives for my kit and WOW is it big. It's everything described here. Looking forward to using it hunting.

About Ka-bar Knives

Ka-Bar Knives

Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.

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.
