Here’s some history on the company, assuming you’re interested. If not, fine, waste the time we spent on it.

Ek Commando Knife Co. or Ek Knives was a combat knife manufacturer founded by John Ek in 1941. Following several changes in ownership, in May 2014 Ek Knives was purchased by Ka-Bar who began selling their versions of Ek knife designs in 2015. Although not officially issued gear, Ek Knives have seen use by US Forces in 6 major conflicts: World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War, Afghanistan, and Iraq War. Ek Knives manufactures Bowie style blades, daggers, and a Fairbairn-Sykes MkII.
