Ka-Bar (trademarked as KA-BAR, pronounced /ˈkeɪ bɑːr/) is the contemporary popular name for the combat knife first adopted by the United States Marine Corps in November 1942 as the 1219C2 combat knife (later designated the USMC Mark 2 combat knife or Knife, Fighting Utility), and subsequently adopted by the United States Navy as the U.S. Navy utility knife, Mark 2. Ka-Bar is the name of a related knife manufacturing company, Ka-Bar Knives., Inc. (formerly Union Cutlery Co.), of Olean, New York, a subsidiary of the Cutco Corporation.
Although Ka-Bar Knives, Inc., currently makes a wide variety of knives and cutlery, it is best known for the Ka-Bar Fighting/Utility knife, which has traditionally used a 7-inch (17.8 cm) 1095 carbon steel clip point blade and leather-washer handle.
The USMC KA-BAR is considered one of the most famous knives in the world. It was originally designed for United States troops in the Second World War and its effectiveness has since been universally recognized and used in many other military scenarios.
This elegant version of the traditional Ka-bar 1217 is characterized by the presence of the gold-plated brass caseback and guard. This version is perfect as a retirement or graduation gift, or simply as an object to be included in your knife collection.
