KA-BAR BK13 Becker Remora, 2.375" Drop Point Blade, Hard Plastic Sheath
The KA-BAR BK13 Becker Remora is a rugged little knife that'll tackle everything you throw at it. This small fixed blade has a blade length of 2.375 inches and an overall length of 5.125--small enough to slip into your pocket without much fanfare or burden.
Made from 1095 Cro-Van steel in the United States, the Becker Remora is extremely durable and willing to do some of the smaller tasks that your larger fixed blade can't. A hard plastic sheath is included with the Becker Remora, but it can also slip into the sheath of the KA-BAR BK5 Becker Magnum Camp Knife.

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.
