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.

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!

I got this knife to lighten my load while camping/hunting. The idea was to have a all in one carry tool. I have not taken this knife on a big game hunt yet. But the small game I have got so far, this knife handles just fine. As a cleaver it goes through bone like butter, so watch the fingers! I also carved a mallet out of a log and used it all weekend as my hatchet. Did not hurt the blade at all. The coating on the knife came off after extensive wood cutting (no big deal, just do a forced patina on the knife after) It is also balanced just up from Handel. Handle on its own is very nice, I did not get a blister using it. It has 3 bolts holding it on so if it breaks it nothing to wrap with cord till you can replace. The sheath is okay. I'd buy a plastic one. Comes nice a sharp. Shaving good, I don't think I'd pry much with the tip but some can be done. If all I could take was this knife I'd say I would be pretty good for a while. All in all its a great big knife!

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.
