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.

I bought this sheath to replace one for a US Diver's knife. It fits great and is actually lighter and takes less space than the original one.

I got it from your website quick! It works fine, lasts a long time, and drains to the bilges.

The sheath will fit all of the armed forces style tactical knives that I have and it is also very good for lashing survival items to the sheath.

This sheath is much better than the sheath that came with the knife when I bought it. It is more versatile as to how I can carry it.

It's a great product for my purposes. Very sturdy, has cast in drain hole and slots for lower thigh belt, and an ambidextrous snap release. I'd highly recommend it for an economical way to sheath large knives.
