During WWII a legend was born, as several companies were asked by the U.S. Government to help supply troops with combat/utility knives. Ka-Bar stepped up to the challenge and their reputation became so strong that all who are familiar with this knife refer to any of its kind simply as the “KA-BAR”. The world’s most famous fixed-blade knife is still doing its job, with honors, almost 70 years later.
