KA-BAR Legendary Knives
Company, established in 1897 and based in Olean, New York, owes its popularity to the Second World War, when it designed the legendary KA-BAR Knife, Fighting Utility for the U.S. Marine Corps on 23 November 1942.
Thanks to its robust and ergonomic design, it was perfect for direct combat and everyday tasks such as driving tent or nail piles, opening food cans or digging holes. Thanks to its popularity and high quality, this model has also been adopted by the American Navy for the needs of combat divers. After the war, the knife was also available on the commercial market and has accompanied us to this day in its classic, legendary form and many modernised varieties.
KA-BAR Knife, Fighting Utility became so famous that in 1952 the manufacturer decided to take over the name KA-BAR Knives., Inc. as the name for the whole company. The KA-BAR product range is constantly being expanded to meet the ever higher demands of the customer. See for yourself what KA-BAR knives can do and you will not be disappointed.
