KA-BAR USMC Fighting Knife - Full Size

The most famous fixed blade knife in the World "the KA-BAR" was designed to serve our troops during World War II and is still doing its job, with honors, more than 50 years later.

The original version of the All American legend. Probably the most widely carried and used knife of it's kind around. This is the legendary knife Marines depended on in World War II. Production of this famous knife continues, designed and manufactured as it was first issued by Ka-Bar in 1941.The KA-BAR USMC Knives are made in the USA."USMC" tang stamp on the blade and includes a U.S.M.C. Eagle.

 



There’s no single edged weapon that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. It’s true that the best Kukris, like our LTC and Gurkha models, can be somewhat expensive. While those “thoroughbreds” perform extraordinarily well for the money that they cost, it sometimes seems that what’s required is a good, inexpensive, “workhorse” model. Our Kukri Machetes are those workhorses. They are available in two sizes, one has a thirteen inch blade and the other, our new “Magnum” model has a whopping seventeen inch blade. Both are ready to plow through the toughest chores life can dish out. Each features the distinctive weight-forward balance of our “top-of-the-line” models, and always present their edge on an angle so they’re guaranteed to “bite” deep with every stroke. Additionally, they come complete with a sturdy Cordura sheath! They're a solid value, ready for long, hard work.
