As a collector of knives, the category of combat knives should not be overlooked. The brave men and women in uniform who have served our country have made good use of these combat knives and still rely on a dependable edge when the situation gets tense. The Ka-Bar USMC combat knife is perhaps the most famous of all the combat knives, but many others are in use and have been for decades that have not garnered such attention. Combat knives have been supplied to the military by SOG knives and TOPS knives as well as many others. The things that make a combat knife valuable to the military, such as rugged dependability, are those same qualities we all look for in a good knife and thus these combat knives are offered with pride.
