KA-BAR is closed today.  Next week looks to bring a giveaway (or two), a new KA-BAR video, and the annual NRA Show in Indianapolis.  Have a great weekend and make sure you are ready when Monday arrives.

Enough with all of these knockoffs.  Let's take a closer look at how the real things are made.

Today we focus on a different type of knockoff.  Using the KA-BAR name and/or that of our designers is a big no-no.  A quick visit to our website shows this item is not a KA-BAR or Becker and is the creation of someone trying to leverage the KA-BAR and Becker name for personal gain.

A side by side comparison out of the box between a KA-BAR USMC Fighting/Utility knife and an off-brand replica. Note the discrepancies in box, sheath, and overall quality.

It is my pleasure to introduce KA-BAR Knockoff Week.  There are many counterfeit products out there claiming to be KA-BAR.  Our goal is to help make it easier to identify a real KA-BAR.  

First example: eBay/online counterfeits.  This is a poor example of a knockoff that blatantly uses the KA-BAR name.   The sheath is incorrect, the lettering is not the proper font, and the handle is vastly different.  Also, be leery of any product that has shipping exclusions.  Be sure to buy from a reputable dealer with a return policy.  If you need additional information visit KA-BAR.com for product specs or email us at info@ka-bar.com

Sad to see counterfeit KA-BARs, or any quality knife being faked. A good example [o]f why imitation is rarely the sincerest form of flattery, it's criminal! This needs to stop!

Some call it throwback Thursday, but I don't think I have the arm to throw it back this far.  Staff from the 1940s outside the factory.

This item was sent to us under our lifetime warranty.  However, it is one of the better looking knockoffs, but a knockoff none the less.  Only a true KA-BAR knife is covered by our lifetime warranty.  It is a terrible feeling to tell or be told an item you thought was backed by a lifetime warranty isn't due to deception.  Stay vigilant.

It's easy to tell because the handle and the blade line up perfectly in this knock off. Whereas my real Marine Corps KA - BAR (killed a bear) has a blade that is set slightly forward of the handle.

KA-BAR Knockoff Awareness Week rolls on. Today we look at the different types of packaging of KA-BAR's, which is one of the clearest ways you know you are getting the real deal. 

PS - It never hurts to also check inside the box when possible.
