    BAD TO THE BONE Ka-Bar Clone!

    Hello and good day, a few months ago I was asked to make a special knife for a Retired Marine. This will be a gift from one friend to another. Which I thought was VERY cool!!!

    I started looking at this knife and planning the project. Having never held a Ka-Bar USMC style knife I went off of a picture on the internet. I have great respect for our veterans and military and I can only hope that my knife represents this in every way!

    The knife is finally done and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. I am happy to share it with you all. and even more so to be able to be a part of this cool project we dubbed Bad To The Bone Ka-Bar Clone! USMC.

    Blade is HHH Predator pattern damascus with Stainless and cocobolo burl handles.
    Engraving by Doug Sutherland.
    Box By Tom Blevins

    Thanks to all who have served there country from all of us at HHH Knives!!!

    STUNNING. There seems to be some dust kicking up here at my computer, I got some in my eye. Great story to go with an amazing set of work.

    Nice Randy!
    Great package all together, any Marine would be beyond elated with this one.
    I'm happy this is going where I think it is.

    Thank you gents for the kind words. Its a honor as I said to make this one. But also to share it with knife nuts like yourselves. And working with great artists and craftsmen like Doug and Tom as well as Jr. in the process of making this one really made it even more special to me.

    Stay sharp
    Randy

    Here are some closing shots, I have been testing out a new light setup, and trying to tweak my camera and lighting to get some better quality photos of these knives!
