Many of these horn handled sheath knives were imported into the US from the 1950's to about the 1970's. Most were built in Germany.

someone almost traded me a Ka-Bar for it once but even though it was a Ka-Bar im glad i kept it

trip286 10-10-2011 02:26 PM

Yes keep it! I have a Ka-Bar and I swear by it. Where I live and the places I frequent no one cares about the knife you carry, and I've carried a gun with no CCW permit for quite a while before I got it (the CCW permit).

One thing though, Ka-Bars are still being made. And depending on where you shop you can find them for anywhere between 40 and 80 dollars depending on the style and store.

You'd have a hard time (maybe) of replacing that German knife if you regretted the trade later, and personally I have great respect for German blade makers.
