    So, I have several Ka-Bar knives I have purchased over the years, never had a problem with any of their knives. One knife in particular I never use is the Ka-Bar Acheron. It's a small neck knife that has been laying on a work bench for a few years,, never used it because it is too small for my...
  2. Knives, Swords & Axes
    I have a Ka-Bar knife with the Kydex sheath, 7" blade. I picked up a Ka-Bar MOLLE adapter and tested it out over the weekend, wearing it on my USGI ALICE LBE while doing yard work. The adapter works as advertised, but the knife rides higher than I would like. In use, drawing it and placing it...
  3. Knives, Swords & Axes
    I was wondering if anyone here has a suggestion as to where you can find the original design ka-bar fighting knife for the best price. I've done some searching but I was thinking some of you might have a reputable site or source you use.

    Hello all, I got my very first BK2 in the mail the other day. It's the nicest knife I've ever invested in and I've wanted it for a couple of years now. I've thought of a dozen different things I want to do to this knife, from stripping it and putting on a patina to replacing the scales with...
  5. Knives, Swords & Axes
    Maybe I'm just being a dork but I can't seem to find a sheath that will fit my Ka-Bar BK3. The one that came with it is terrible. The bottom part is fine but the top part is some kind of nylon with a little button snap. The worst part is that the nylon strap doesn't even fit around the handle...

    So I finally broke down and bought Ka-Bar Becker BK2 Campanion. I was getting tired of scratching up my more expensive knives. One thing I loved about this knife was the hollowed out handles. Tonight I wrapped the sheath in about 15 ft of paracord and added contents to the inside of the...

    I picked up a KA-BAR 3075 "Warthog" at the NEX for $7.00 USD. The MSRP from the KA-BAR website is $18.00 I was skeptical about the quality of such an inexpensive knife (made in china), but I figured that it would be worth the $7.00 gamble to try it out and if KA-BAR put their name on it, and...

  10. Looking For - Want To Buy From Vendors
    :D: Am looking for a short ka-bar or short recurve ka-bar. Used is ok as long as it's not been abused. Live on a fixed income so cost is a major factor as well. Thanks:D:
  11. Knives, Swords & Axes
    okay, so i'm tired of the cheap $50 knives that the local gun store sells. i've gone through way too many and they break to much. i'm not too knowledgable in the metals and brands of knife makers that are good. What i need are three knives, i'm willing to pay up to $200-$400 for each of these 3...

    I purchased a new Kbar Becker BK2 for $35.00 at a gun show did I get a good deal?
  13. Knives, Swords & Axes
    Just a heads up, many of you Becker fans probably already know this but the new version of the Ka-Bar BK2 knife is now shipping. Changes are a skeletonized handle and a flat "hammer" pommel.

    These make a world of difference in terms of grip on the Becker BK2, BK3, BK7 and BK9. Pretty sharp looking too. Becker Micarta Handles at Here are a few images of the handles with a BK7.

    I am searching for a good chopping/hacking knife to use around the yard and woods for trimming branches, slashing vines and brambles, and general firewood gathering. I do have a Wetterlings small ax that I use when out and about, but I want something with more reach and more cutting surface for...

    The UPS guy was nice enough to drop this off today. Ka-Bar Short Tanto This one is going into my collection. Has a nice sheath that looks like it would be very easy to attach to a pack or LBE. I just spruced it up a bit by adding some 550 paracord to the eyelets around the sheath. (Done...

    Couldn't get an answer in the knife section, so I'll ask here: any reason why a Ka-bar short version wouldn't be great for camping/hiking as a single do-all knife?
