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.

My KA-BAR tactical knife has good balance, excellent quality and price. Delivery was on time and the knife is as good, or better, than the advertisement. I highly recommend the KA-BAR black tactical knife.

Bought as a gift for my son. He love it. It is not something I think he will put to much use at this time as he is a younger teen but he has loved knives since he was little and has recently started a small collection. His favorites are military styles.

This KA-BAR is capable of being the perfect survival tool. Beautifully balanced and ground to a surgical edge with a handle which insures a solid grip. My compliments and thank you.

This is a great KA-BAR knife! It is heavy, has a nice grip, and it's built sturdy.

I purchased this knife to send to my son, who is a 82nd Airborne paratrooper stationed in Samara Iraq. He requested a tactical knife that he could use for various situations. My son basically told me what he needed and this is what I found. He was ecstatic. He told me it was absolutely perfect for all he needed it to do. He could not have chosen a more perfect knife himself. The black matte finish is necessary so that there is no glare to show enemy tacticalants their location.

The knife is perfect for what I do. I'm an EOD tech in Iraq right now, and I bought it prior to leaving country. The knife is perfect for cutting or if I need to probe or dig anything suspicious out.
