Ka-Bar Knives

Shortly after the start of W.W.II, Ka-Bar began working with the Marine Corps Quartermaster to design a knife for the United States Marine Corps. Soon Ka-Bar began production on the utility knife that would later make Ka-Bar a widely recognized name. When the war escalated the demand for the utility knives became so great that Ka-Bar could not keep up. As a result, the government assigned several knife companies to create similar knives as supplemental pieces for those serving during the war. Still Ka-Bars' wartime production totaled more than 1 million knives.

These Ka-Bars became so well recognized for their quality and so abundant, that Ka-Bar became the name by which most referred to the utility knife. Growing in popularity and earning well-deserved respect for it’s service throughout the war, the USMC Ka-Bar utility knife was adopted by not only the Marines, but also the Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Underwater Demolition Teams (SEALS). The Ka-Bar knife was depended upon to perform daily tasks like pounding stakes and digging foxholes, as well as defending allied lives. Ka-Bar "The Knife", we now offer to the general public in its original design and form –“Ka-Bar”.
