HOW KA-BAR GOT ITS NAME...
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. 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.
