KA-BAR MARINE HUNTER
Released in 2007, The Marine Hunter is a reproduction of a knife offered by KA-BAR over 30 years ago and is a great addition to the classically styled line of stacked leather handled fixed blades. The blade measures 5-7/8" and measures 1-1/8" at its widest point, and is made from tough DIN 1.4116 stainless steel at 55-57 Rc. Finger grips on the stacked leather handle ensure a firm grip. Brass guard, solid aluminium butt cap, and red/white/black spacers makes this a very good-looking knife. Measures 10-3/4" overall and weighs 9.9 oz.
KA-BAR Knives, Inc., a subsidiary of Alcas Corporation, manufactures high quality military, hunting, sporting, and all-purpose utility knives.
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.
