Happy Birthday, Ka-Bar

This week 99 years ago Union Cutlery registers for the KA-BAR trademark.

I’ve always loved them, from the pocket knives to the fighting knives.

Two WWII Marine Raiders demo knife fighting– note the K.

The vehicle ran over the Ka-Bar and it punctured the tire and lodged in the wheel. the handle did not break off until it was inside the tire.
