About the Classic Military Fighting/Utility Knives
Shortly after the start of World War II, 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 to create similar knives for those serving 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.
