KA-BAR Knives is proud to mark 120 years in business in 2018. The iconic KA-BAR Fighting/Utility Knife is now available engraved with the 120th KA-BAR Commemorative logo.
The KA-BAR 120th Anniversary Commemorative Fighting/Utility Knife is now available in U.S. ARMY, USMC, USN models as well as the new edition Dog's Head 120th Commemorative knife. The knives have a 7” blade and measure 11.875” overall. The Commemorative Knives are made in the USA.
The engraved logo features the historical “The Union” logo from the early 1900s, a bear, and the years marking 120 years – 1898 and 2018.
The significance of the bear is in the KA-BAR name itself. An Alaskan hunter was attacked by a Kodiak bear, but successfully defended himself using his Union Cutlery knife. The hunter was so thankful that he sent a letter describing the ordeal with “K a Bar” (Kill a Bear) as well as sending in the bear fur. The officers of Union Cutlery decided to adopt KA-BAR as a trademark in 1924.
