nothing fancy here, but a special knife to me. it,s a K-BAR made in orleans NY and carried by my father in WW-2 and he gave it to me when i started hunting as it is a large belt knife and i preferred a small folder it sat in my gun cabinet alot, but after his passing i try to gut a few animals a year in his honor. i just made my first trip to africa and used it to gut many animals, i,m sure he would have like that. eastbank.

Eastbank, actual WWII Ka-Bars are always cool. The history behind yours, the sentimental value, and getting to use it on big game in Africa in your father's honor is truly awesome. That's beyond cool, and thank you for sharing that with us.

Eastbank, having something of sentimental value can be more worthwhile than an expensive knife. I didn't find this until my father had passed. I'd seen it when I was a kid, but it didn't mean anything to me then. It appears to have been either a bayonet or a trench knife. He put pictures beneath the clear plastic scales; my mother sitting on stairs on one side, and him holding me as an infant on the other.

Nothing fancy. Not worth much to anyone else, but needless to say, my most special one.

That's one of the most priceless knives shown in this thread. A real treasure.

perado ty for the array of Damascus art, #596 is perfection.

Your family photo knife would go well with the Colt vest pocket a friends Father carried through WWII. He had plastic grips with similar photos.

Thanks for the kind words. Sometimes you don't appreciate things until it's too late.

Just so many beautiful blades in this thread. I'm humbled by the abilities of those who make their own.

Just a few more:

ProTechs



Lynn Dawson (I do use some of them)


And, as a reminder to join KnifeRights so it won't happen here; these were in my possession to send to a friend in Australia. (He had given me one of them) Australia has since confiscated and destroyed them.

Did they do that because of the wood?

To be honest, I believe that there's a customs officer with a very nice collection.

My favorite folder maker is Wayne (WR) Clark. He used to grind and (I believe) design for ProTech. He also was AutoTech and DKD Knives, as well as his customs.

I have the terrible habit of going to a gunshow and coming home with a knife or two. This was what happened today:

Your knife is a "KaBar Commando", and it is a WWII private-purchase (not an official "military-issue") knife -- though it may well have been issued to your father. Knives were in extremely short supply, so the War Department had to get pretty creative. IMO, the handle on the Commando fits the human hand better than any other I've ever held.

KaBar made two versions of the Commando. One version - yours - has a bright blade with fullers on both sides. The other had a flat-ground (no fullers) parkerized blade. Both versions were in high demand. One can occasionally find Commandos like yours that saw use in Korea, and in Vietnam.

Of course, the provenance of your knife is worth much, MUCH more than the knife itself. Thanks for showing the knife and sharing its history.

YoMama, Grips are like Timex watches; inexpensive, but they'll take a licking and keep on ticking. Or, in this case, clacking. (That's the only thing about them that I dislike.)

My favorite knife, a rare Seki, Japan-made SOG SCUBA/DEMO before SOG discontinued them.
It's based on a Vietnam-era UDT knife made for MACV/SOG Teams.
