Shortly after the start of World War 2, KA-BAR began working with the Marine Quartermaster to design a fighting knife for the United States Marine Corps. Soon, production was underway on the fighting/utility knife that would later make KA-BAR a widely recognized name.
When the war escalated, the demand for the fighting/utility knives became so great that KA-BAR could not keep up. As a result, the government assigned several knife companies during the war. KA-BAR’s wartime production alone totaled more than one million knives.
The KA-BAR knives became so well-recognized for their quality and so abundant that “KA-BAR” became the name by which most referred to this style fighting/utility knife.
Here are 3 of their KA-BAR knives with the United States Marine Corps Eagle Globe, and Anchor and the United States Army insignia.
