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 son was in Afghanistan he came home we gave him this knife.He was in college his truck back pack was stolen fishing gear stolen. Had the lock cover on back.He love that knife.
Excellent product. Well made and finished. For the knife it was intended for it is perfect. If you try to fit another knive to it as I did things can get difficult. Trying to get your particular knife to fit level becomes the problem. I tried fitting a Randall #1 - 8" to it and the handle bottomed on the base before the magnet could attract the blade to hold the knife forcing a friction fit on the guard in order to get the knife near level. I would still buy this product as mounting problems always occur when adapting and it looks great.
We ended up purchasing 3 of these for three friends who collect knives around the world. Although we did not use the KA-BAR knives we were still able the make minor adjustments to the holder within the the dome. All were delivered to Tasmania, Australia.
