Q:  Can I get the Air Force KA-BAR with the brown wood handle?  

A:  The handle color is determined by which Military Branch you order.   The USMC, Navy, and Army KA-BARs have a Brown Leather handle and their respective branches stamped into the Blade by KA-BAR, Inc. near the hilt before applying the Black Coating on the blade.  Since the others (Air Force, Coast Guard, and Civilian) don't have a designated KA-BAR, we use the Black Handle KA-BAR with "USA" stamped into the blade for them.   

 

Q:  Are these REAL K-Bars?   

A:  YES  We are an Authorized KA-BAR Distributor.  The 1200 Fighting Knives that we show on our Website are made by KA-BAR Knives, Inc. in their factory in Olean, New York.    

 

Q:  Can I get my kabar engraved by your company?   

A:  Probably.   But not all KA-BARs can be Laser Engraved.   This option is not offered on our Website so you will need to contact us ( 843 524-3600 or bufs@islc.net ) and we can discuss the probability of Engraving your KA-BAR for you.

Q:  I recently got a KA-BAR and Wall Display from you.   What do I need to do to take care of them?   

A;  Not much maintenance is necessary but a light coat of Gun Oil applied to the blade periodically will keep any rust from forming on the exposed steel.
