KA-BAR Knives, Inc. is a subsidiary of Cutco Corporation, the largest manufacturer of high-quality kitchen cutlery and accessories in the United States and Canada. KA-BAR has been making knives since 1898, and each knife undergoes thorough manufacturing processes and product testing to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and razor sharp cutting edge.
The company's name dates back to the early 1900s, from a fur trapper testimonial. He wrote that while trapping, his gun jammed, leaving him with only his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. He thanked the knife makers for producing the blade that helped him kill a bear, but all that was legible was "K a bar." Honored by the testimonial, the company adopted the name KA-BAR.
