There's only one real reason to buy a KA-BAR.
When it comes down to it and you're all alone and your survival depends on a knife, you're going to want a knife you can trust. A knife that won't fail you. A knife that has proven itself time and time again.
You're going to want a KA-BAR.
But, if you are buying a knife off of an internet auction site like eBay or various China websites, there is a good chance you are buying a counterfeit. Buy from authorized KA-BAR dealers to ensure you are receiving an authentic KA-BAR product.
KA-BAR offers authentic Mule knives in a variety of different styles and colors.
Authentic KA-BAR knives come with a polyester sheath with KA_BAR embroidering and KA-BAR'S Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Compare the authentic KA-BAR Mule with a counterfeit product available on a China website for just $16.
Note the missing body screws, construction and the difference in the blade edge width.
