Marine Corps Ka-Bar Knife – Customized for You

[ad 1]

Custom Marine Corps Ka-Bar with Granite PlaqueThe USMC Ka-Bar epitomized lethal ferocity but also symbolizes the heart of a warrior. We are pleased to offer customized Ka-Bar knives for our visitors at a very low rate. This is how the knife is explained from Ka-Bar®:

On December 9, 1942, after the start of World War II, KA-BAR submitted a knife to the United States Marine Corps in hopes that it would become general issue to that branch of the military. Working with the Marine Quartermaster Department the original design was revised and production began of an improved fighting and utility knife for the Marines.

As the War escalated, the USMC KA-BAR knives became so well recognized for their quality and so abundant in number that “Kabar” became the name by which many referred to this knife pattern, regardless of whether the knife was manufactured at the actual KA-BAR facility.

The USMC KA-BAR was adopted by not only the Marines, but also the Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Underwater Demolition Teams. Years after World War II, many KA-BAR knives were unofficially reactivated in the Korean, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Iraqi Freedom conflicts.

Today, the original USMC Fighting and Utility Knife remains the first choice for many men and women of service who carry it as their personal knife option. It is also a favorite of adventurers, survivalists, outdoor sportsmen and, of course, knife collectors who know that this knife deserves a place in their collection.

The blades we are offering aren’t your standard blade though. Add your name or a friend or family member’s name to the blade with their rank and favorite motto. You can also choose from many different Marine Corps inspired logos to add to the overall design. If you are interested in purchasing this knife as a commemorative piece for a Marine Corps graduation ceremony, US Marine promotion, retirement from the Corps, or to honor a fallen Marine we recommend a customized wall plaque. The addition of a plaque allows you to display your Ka-Bar knife with pride and you can also add a custom message and logo to the plaque.
