When someone say the Marine Corps, there are likely a number of images that come to mind. The classic Eagle, Globe, and Anchor, an English Bulldog, the Dress Blues, and of course, the Ka-Bar fighting knife. Coming into World War 2, the USMC and the Army lacked a sufficient fighting knife. Many were adopted in limited numbers, but none seemed to fit the needs of the Marine Corps until 1942 when the Ka-Bar was adopted by both the US Navy and the United States Marine Corps. The Marine Corps is rarely one to waste words, and the Ka-Bar became the Knife, Fighting Utility.
What’s a Ka-Bar? Well, it’s a rather large knife design that sports a 7-inch blade with a clip point tip. The handle gives the Ka-Bar a very distinct look and features a leather washer design that provides a low tech means to achieve an excellent grip. The blade is 1.188 inches wide and .165 inches thick.
The Ka-Bar pulls no punches in design and size. Keep in mind, after World War 1, the expectancy for close quarter’s combat was quite high, so the Ka-Bar was designed to be a fighting knife. This explains the long blade and clip point tip. The blade’s design makes it very conducive for slicing and dicing against the enemies of America. The length of the blade allows you to penetrate the body deeply from any angle.
