What Owners Say

Well said by all other owners. I first received my USMC KA-BAR on my 16th birthday from my father. I can't wait to be a father so I can give my son one of his own. A KA-BAR saved my uncles life serving the U.S. Army. To more than 100 yrs of serving America, thanks you for bringing soldiers back home

I'm in the Canadian Forces but I picked up a USMC KA-BAR at Pendleton and carried it throughout my year long tour in Afghanistan. During an attack on our camp all I had was my 9mm and my KA-BAR. The other guys said I looked freaking hard core and no insurgent was going to mess with me. None did.

I have had my full sized blade in action for 15 years-never let me down,and only needed a good sharpening once-no problem.That knife has been abused beyond belief,I would never buy or carry any other knife.I own 12 Ka-bars and use 3 as working blades,I cannot say enough good about 'em

For me the name KA-BAR has always been associated wth American inginuity and amazing knives. I have owned 3 and I have 2 now, the steel used is amazing and the craftsmansip is unbeatable. Well worth the money.

20 years ago my grandpa cemented my love for the USMC fighting knife by showing off his and telling me about his years of service when he was young. Now as an adult I understand why this great knife meant so much to him. It truly is a solid knife and a piece of history. I own 7 of them. The best. USA
