Want to experience a legend? Pick up the KA-BAR Short Black Fixed Blade. This knife is modeled after the legendary KA-BAR USMC Utility Knife that's been used by military personnel since World War II. This all-black iteration of the knife comes in a compact version with a reasonable 5.25-inch blade made from 1095 carbon steel.

The clip point blade features a stout blood groove with black epoxy powder coating that matches the black Kraton G thermoplastic elastomer handle. Featuring deep grooves, the oval-shaped handle with powdered metal butt caps offers an exceptional grip while a guard keeps the hand from sliding onto the blade when piercing.

This version comes with a Kydex sheath.

Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.

Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.

He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was 'k a bar'. The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.
