Ek Commando Knife Co.

BAR Knives is proud to reintroduce Ek Knives, a legendary WWII American knife brand made in the USA. BAR is proud to be the living link between the tradition of John Ek and the Ek Commando Knife Co. Ek wanted to contribute to the American war effort during World War II and did so from his shop in Hamden, CT. Ek crafted custom knives exclusively for American soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines. He employed disabled Americans to aid him in building six models of knives during WWII. Ek called these “Ek Commando Knives”, a reflection of their intended close quarter use.
