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.

Ka Bar knives are by far the best when it comes to reliability and endurabilty. I have used them in the armed forces and still have my old one from the Gulf War. There is no substitute for these knives and I recommend them for any hunter, outdoorsman , hiking enthusiast or anyone who needs a reliable knife.
This is a very good knife, which does the job. Remember that it rusts, so keep it oiled (I use weapon cleaning oil). It was delivered as ordered and very quickly.
This is a very nice knife! I really like the design of the blade. It came in sharp and is very easy to sharpen to a razor edge. It took a while to get used to the scabbard with it's safety release but I am fine with it now.
This is the best knife I have ever owned.
This was purchased as a gift. The recipient was pleased. I was satisfied with the overall purchasing, buying, & simplicity of shipping of the whole transaction.

This is an excellent knife. It is well balanced and strong with a good, sharp edge.
Quality, made in America knife.. Haven't used it in the field, but, wonder about the hammer strike ability of the haft.. No apparent faults..
Sturdy Knife for all outdoor possibilities. However, it may be a little too large for most people though.
