KA-BAR - USA FIXED BLADE ARMY MILITARY KNIFE
KA-BAR Fighting Knives are an American legend and used by US and Australian forces in every conflict. They've proven their battle readiness and are as solid as the countries they have defended!
First issued by Ka-Bar in 1941, this legendary blade was submitted to the United States Marine Corps, after the start of World War II, in hopes that it would become general issue to that branch of the military. After working closely with the Marine Quartermaster Department, revisions were made to the original design, and production began on this improved Ka-Bar knife for the Marines.
It was during the height of World War II that this legendary fighting knife became so widely recognized for its quality, and so abundant in number, that "Kabar" quickly became the accepted name by which many referred to this knife pattern, regardless of whether or not the knife was actually manufactured at the Ka-Bar facility.
The USMC Fighting Knife has since been adopted by not only the Marines, but also the Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Underwater Demolition Teams. And today the original USMC fighting knife remains the first choice in combat knives for our brave men and women of service, who carry it as their personal knife option,
Thanks to its superior quality and time tested reliability, this knife is not only well regarded by our military personnel, but has also become a favorite to adventurers, survivalists and outdoor sportsmen alike. The KABAR Knife is THE knife that collectors, world wide, recognize as deserving of a place in their collection
