Kabar 1026 Pocket Knife.

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.

Kabar 1026 Pocket Knife.

Post by New_Windsor_NY » Sun Apr 03, 2022 1:15 am

This pocket knife arrived recently in a large group or lot of pocket knives that I bought. I did NOT purchase the group or lot to obtain this particular pocket knife. But, it did turn out to be a keeper. It is a Kabar, pattern 1026, two blades, single tang stamp, 3" closed, pocket knife. The main blade tang stamp reads "Kabar - 1026 - U.S.A." It is in GOOD condition.
It needed a minor cleaning. I took some pictures and here it is.

Nice knife. I have a couple that I modified for whittling. Solid knives, and they take a nice edge.

They were already broken and worn when I got them. Just a testament to how much use and abuse they held up to.

I friend of mine has carried a Trapper that was his father-in-law's since he found it back in the 1970s and it's held up well. I have a 1081 that is pretty good. The 1026 is the one I think I will like quite well.


I have a jack that is just over 4" in parts knife condition. Does anyone know what Kabar patterns matched it? I'd love to have one that is decent enough to EDC.
