Ka-Bar Knives

The legend of how Ka-Bar knives were named tells of a fur trapper who used his knife to kill a bear when his gun jammed. His handwriting was so horrible, all that could be deciphered was "k a bar," which later became the company's trademark.

Solid construction, hair popping sharp right out of the box, love this knife.

My star rating is a 4 1/2. The good: this knife has a great feel about it. It is solid and lighter for its size than I expected. But that does not mean light. The feel is great, except for the clip. That is secured by some T4 screws and I will most likely remove it. The bad: KD lists this as an assisted open knife, but really it is not. No spring and opening is a two step processes, even with the assist on the blade. I would have preferred either a true assisted opening or at least categorizing this as "just" a pocket knife. Have used it (just got it), so no idea on how it holds an edge. My guess is that since it IS a Ka-bar, then I will have no worries.

If you need a VERY sharp machete buy this weapon. This is a weapon not a tool, if you are looking to protect yourself buy this knife without hesitation . ONLY REASON FOR A 4 STAR Review was because I almost lost a finger. PLEASE BE CAREFUL

Joshua B. from The Woods, GA
I had this knife for 7 years before it was lost at the bottom of a lake. It cleaned squirrels, rabbits, deer, cut my boot off in an unfortunate accident (I healed, it all works fine again), pried nails, whittled wood, and survived a spear making experiment. No cracks, dings, rust, stains, and it held it's edge with little maintenance. This knife survived everything i put it to as a teenager being rough on it and not really loving it until it was gone. I saw this guy on clearance and i hope it's not a closeout sale never to return to the store, but I bought 2 of them just in case. Beware, it doesn't come with a sheath, so go ahead and add one to your order before you end up paying twice on shipping

More Information 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.
