KA-Bar


KA-Bar Authorized Dealer
 
On December 9, 1942, after the start of World War II, KA-BAR submitted a fighting knife to the United States Marine Corps in hopes that it would become general issue to that branch of the military. Working in conjunction with the Marine Quartermaster Department a design was devised and soon production was under way on a new and improved fighting / utility knife for the Marines. As the war escalated, the demand for these knives was so great that the KA-BAR factory alone could not keep up. The government assigned several knife companies to create similar knives as supplemental pieces for those serving the War. KA-BARs wartime production totaled more than 1 million. The KA-BAR knives became so well recognized for their quality and so abundant in number that Kabar became the name by which many referred to this knife pattern, regardless of whether the knife was manufactured at the KA-BAR facility.
 
Today, the original USMC Fighting / Utility Knife remains the first choice for many Marines who choose to carry it as their personal option knife during service. It is also a favorite of adventurers, survivalists, outdoor sportsmen and, of course, knife collectors who know that this knife this American Legend deserves a place in their collection.
