The Red Spacer KA-BAR is arguably the most collectible KA-BAR Knife made during World War II. The distinct red spacer below the hand guard and above the leather washer has caught the eye of collectors for decades. Though originals are rare and expensive, KA-BAR’s State & Union shop has made a small batch of this iconic knife with the Dog's Head blade mark. The leather washers are shaped by hand and dyed to create an aged appearance. The pommel is ground down to replicate the dimensions of the original. Each red spacer is hand made to be slightly longer than the current spacer used on KA-BAR Fighting/Utility Knives. The blade is sandblasted, then cold gun blued. The sheath undergoes an ageing process to darken the leather and match the original sheath color.

My wife purchased the first knife as a Christmas gift. Liked it so much that I purchased a second knife. The quality of workmanship on these knives was exceptional. As I love military specialty knives, I purchased three additional USMC Red Spacer knives as an investment or gifts. Thanks State/Union Shop for a job well done. D. E. Hilliard, Fl
