WWII Ka-Bar Knife for USMC

KA-BARŽ USMC Knife

Original 12" Black Bladed US Marine Corp WWII Issue Knife... The real thing,  a bit of History You can Own and Carry in the Field (Click Photos to Enlarge and Show Detail).
   The KA-BARŽ is the famous fighting/utility knife used by United States Marines throughout World War II. It's a Big Knife... nearly 12" long with a 7" blade. World Ka-Bar Knife with SheathWar II USMC Ka-Bar Knife in World War IIMarines used it not only for a combat weapon, but for pounding tent stakes, driving nails, opening ration cans, or even digging foxholes... it was one tough, reliable knife and for good reason: The original KA-BARŽ Company considered it their contribution to the war effort and made it tough enough to survive torturous testing beyond that required by the USMC. They drove it into 6" X 6" timbers and strained the blade back and forth at extreme angles to be sure it wouldn't break when our soldiers needed it. They constantly tested edge retention by cutting through all types of materials. They submitted the leather handles to severe atmospheric and corrosion tests to be sure they would hold up under all conditions of cold, heat or jungle rot. You've heard the multitude of military stories praising this amazing knife and how popular it was with the soldiers? Now you know why!
Ka-Bar Blueprints, Plans, and Drawings for Kabar Knife ManufacturingKabar drawings, plans, or blue prints show the Ka-Bar knife features  Except for a short run of commemoratives produced in the '70's, these amazing knives haven't been made since the end of World War II. In 1996, KA-BARŽ assets were purchased by Alcas corporation. The blueprints and tooling for the KA-BARŽ USMC Knife were resurrected and now they're back in production. They're a little bit of history you can be proud to own and carry in the field hunting. Click on the pictures to see original full sized blueprints. 
 These modern production KA-BARŽ knives are made to the same specifications as the original. Blades are high carbon 1095 steel tempered to HRC 56-58 so they'll hold an edge while maintaining tensile strength. Handles are shaped from oval, stacked leather segments for a comfortable, non-slip grip. Pommels are made from a powdered metal process and hand guards are carbon steel. All of the metal surfaces are finished in powder coat matte black to give corrosion protection and eliminate glare. 
 Just like the original WWII KA-BARŽs, these have 7" blades and measure 11-7/8ths (Almost a foot) long. Each KA-BARŽ comes with a cowhide sheath like the originals. And, the sheath is embossed with the US Marine Corp Eagle and Globe crest. They're even gift boxed!
