The John Ek Commando knife has been famous among U.S. military personnel and civilians alike since its first production in 1941. In 2015, Ka-Bar acquired the rights to the Ek Commando knife and continue the American legend in new ways. Ek Commando knives are tailor-made for close-quarters combat but serve as excellent outdoor camping and hunting knives due to their bomb-proof construction and time-tested design. Excellent handle ergonomics, a variety of blade shapes and sizes, and durable materials set the Commando apart from the crowd.

Ka-Bar Tactical Fixed Blades are iconic for their effective design and top-tier quality. When the chips are down, it's time to suit up with Ka-Bar!
