Ka-Bar knives have become an icon of American cutlery. This brand has existed since 1898 and some of its models have or still equip the American army.
Ka-Bar is an acronym that stands for Knife Attachment-Browning Automatic Rifle. In other words, the primary function of the iconic model is none other than a bayonet.
The model 1217 USMC remains the essential reference of the brand.
For more than 70 years, that is to say since the second world war, this knife has equipped the Marine Corps of the American army.
It has a timeless design and a quality of manufacture which is not any more to prove. Its grip and balance make it a formidable combat knife.
