This EK Knife is made in the U.S.A.
KA-BAR Knives is proud to reintroduce EK Knives, a legendary WWII American knife brand made in the USA.  KA-BAR is proud to be the living link between the tradition of John EK and the EK Commando Knife Co.

EK Knives was created by John EK in 1941.  EK wanted to contribute to the American war effort during World War II and did so from his shop in Hamden, CT.  EK crafted custom knives exclusively for American soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines.  He employed disabled Americans to aid him in building six models of knives during WWII.  EK called these “EK Commando Knives”, a reflection of their intended close quarter use.  The EK Commando Knife would become a hallmark of the US Marine Raiders and other American special operation units during WWII.

American troops have carried EK Commando Knives in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, and countless other hotspots around the globe.  John Ek knives live on today through KA-BAR.

This beauty is decked out and ready to be put on display. A mirror polished stainless steel blade and lacquered walnut* handle scales make this knife a real head turner. But don't be fooled - this pretty lady is ready to dive into work as well! 

Sold with an American made leather sheath. 

Walnut is a natural material and there will be variation in the grains and color of the handle scales used to make the EK13 Presentation Knives. 

 Please note, due to state regulations we cannot ship the EK Commando Presentation knives to NY, CA or MA.

The knife and sheath are made in the USA in Olean, NY.
