I have 3 that belonged to an uncle who survived Chosin Res with the 1st, one that was carried by me (even on flight status) 1968-1970 and 1972-1973 2MAW and one that I obtained thru the first Desert Storm tho as a senior officer....MESSAGE TO POLITICIANS: Hands off the K-Bar....!

Totally impressed with this blade...good balance..and sharp as hell. Played pirate and yanked the blade out of the sheath...plain cut the tip of the strap a perfect clean cut angle...Totally satisfied..

Bada$$ blade.

I just received this KABAR as a gift from a Marine buddy. What a beautiful blade!I have a KABAR that I bought while at Twentynine Palms in the mid-90's and it's seen some use and abuse, but it NEVER looked as good as this one. The fit, finish and feel of this knife is excellent. And sharp??? You bet your sweet bippy it's sharp! When my buddy said he was going to buy these knives, I pointed him in the direction of Sgt. Grit. I've been completely happy with everything I've ever gotten from Sgt. Grit and will continue to shop here for all of my Marine Corps "needs" and I think he will too!Semper Fi!

Ordered this for my nephew that graduated from MCRD San Diego on February 14. I didn't want to order until I knew his rank because I wanted this engraved on the blade. Good thing I waited because he graduated with a meritorious promotion to Private First Class. I ordered when we got back home (2/16) and it just arrived today (2/22) in perfect condition with the display case. The quality is superb and the service from Sgt. Grit is impressive. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to commemorate the sacrifice and dedication made by a United States Marine.

I just received the personalized USMC American Legend KA BAR. I bought this as a gift for my son who is graduating from MCRD Parris Island soon. I posted a picture on a social networking site (fb) and all the comments are about what a beautiful knife this is. The blade is scary sharp! Quality workmanship and balance! It took less than 2 weeks for me to have this item customized and delivered.There is going to be one happy Marine very soon! Thank you very much!!!!

Would just like to say I recieved my 2 K-Bars an I couldn't be happier they are everything I hoped they would be. I showed a guy at work an he took it a shaved about a 3" strip of hair off his arm an said " DAMN that is sharp" LOL . I said " what did you expect it's a Marine Corp fighting knife ." Well what can I say he was in the Air Force lol. Any way I sent one to a Brother Marine in Gary IN he should get it by saturday . Thanks again for being here Sgt Git this was my first order but not my last . Semper Fi Bryan

A BAR is a BAR!

USMC American Legend KA-Bar
Ron Gladson - Wednesday, January 27, 2016

This knife is scary sharp and easy to keep that way. Normally I would use a smaller knife for field dress deer but the KA-Bar will make short work of it, indeed the best knife I have ever used.

K Bar christmas
Bob Russ - Wednesday, January 27, 2016

2 sons, both Marines (I'm retired Navy corpsman) got me the perfect gifts for Christmas this year - the oldest gave me a 556 cal ammo can to store my rounds in and the youngest gave me the Ka Bar knife I mentioned I would like (way back in August). Great knife, I keep it next to my 357 beside the bed (sleep vey well, thank you).

Steve Driever - Wednesday, January 27, 2016

The KA-BAR and sheath are great. Glad to see that the knife was still made in NY. The quality was as good as ever. When he was a child, my son had inadvertently broken the tip off my original KA-BAR that I had during active duty. When I mentioned at Christmas dinner that I had given a new KA-BAR to myself, my son, now in his late 30s blurted out, "I'm sorry about that, dad." And that is how important the KA-BAR is a Marine.
