Humpback Jack

The KA-BAR brand originated as a trademark of the Tidioute Cutlery Company. Tidioute was later taken over & renamed the Union Cutlery Company which continued making the brand until Union eventually adopted it as the company name in 1952. Cutco Corporation later acquired the company in 1996.

Humpback Jack

Post by Drukai » Thu May 21, 2020 2:18 am

Have heard that Bob Cargill designed his 1982 Knife World Humpback Jack off a old KaBar pattern knife. I have seen the Union 1989 KaBar HMP knives, but have never seen an original of the pattern...anyone have a picture or is info on Cripple Creek false on the knife world design coming from a old KaBar pattern.

Awesome thanks for the picture. I’m assuming they are pretty hard to come by?
