It’s Elite 8 time knife fans. Today we bring you two American powerhouse companies from the Legacy division. KA-BAR and Buck. In Round 1 we brought you in-depth company profiles. In Round 2 we posted a selection of videos, reviews, company history, SHOT/BLADE Show floor visits, and that sort of thing.

Round 3 is going to bring you the “Best of Instagram”. Just some good, old-fashioned knife-porn from the two featured companies.

Yesterday’s match was incredibly close with Böker grabbing the last Elite 8 spot 17-13 over Morakniv. I must say I was a little surprised by this one.


KA-BAR reached the Elite 8 with victories over Utica Cutlery, and Case. Click the links for Round 1 and 2 content respectively.

Here are some of the best KA-BAR images I found on both KA-BAR’s instagram page, as well as the hashtag #kabar.

    My votes for Buck, but those aged leather-handled KaBars are so damn sexy.

  5. WilliePfisterbottom says:

    All Ka-Bar Dog Head’s were made by Canal Street Cutlery. I vote Buck. The new Remington maker. Ka-Bar’s Marine knife needs a spear -type point, yet they never seem to wanna change to it.

  7. Daniel Peace says:

    BUCK 120 DESTROYS THE KABAR thats why folks only compare it to the Buck 119 because the 120 General and even the 124 will both rock the Kabar.
