The Kabar Story

Post by petesknives » Sun Jul 05, 2020 6:49 pm

Came across this video titled The Kabar Story on YouTube.

Interesting video 46 minutes long.

I don't know how to post a link to it, maybe one of you guys can help.

Thanks,

KA-BAR released that in four parts last year. Pretty good but not 100% correct. There is no evidence that Union Razor in Tidioute ever made any hunting knives but they show a guy forging out a hunting knife blade. They have no real proof of the "K a bar" letter. The soldier at 22:54 into the video is not wearing a KA-BAR product and they sort of mislead people into thinking they still make knives for the US army, marines, and coast guard when they do not. They have not had a military contract since WW2, all the USMC, army, and coast guard models they make now may be carried by servicemen but they were and are private purchase knives. Otherwise it is a fine video with some helpful info. Joe Bradley did a fine job producing this. Case could make a good one too if they put their minds to it.

I watched it when Kabar first released it a few years back; in parts. Honestly, I think they did something far better than what you see on major cable networks, and probably at a tiny fraction of the cost--and no advertising, sponsorship deals, etc.
