John Ek wanted to contribute to the American war effort during World War II. From his shop in Hamden, Connecticut, Ek built custom knives specifically for soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines. He even built a knife for the Commander-in-Chief, American President Franklin Roosevelt.

Americans have carried Ek Commando Knives in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, and countless other locations in between. John Ek’s knives live on today through Ek Commando Knife as a testament to his ideas, skills, and unflinching patriotism.

The Ek design KA-BAR Commando Short Clip Point features a 12.6cm, 1095 Cro-Van steel clip point blade with a black powder coated finish. This full tang fixed blade has a black Ultramid handle with black oxide stainless steel hardware and a lanyard hole.

    Ka bar EK50

    Posted by Adi on 7th Dec 2022

    Really excellent all round knife. The clip point version has a bit more of a tactical feel whereas the drop point version (EK51) is probably more suited to camping / bushcraft tasks (and also has a shorter blade) The handle of the EK50 is quite short which is perfect for my relatively small hands but you may find the handle too small if you have large size hands.
