The John Ek Commando knife company is owned by Ka-Bar so Rick again went to his friend John Stitt CEO of Ka-Bar knives with the idea of making a collaboration with Ek. Rick took the simplistic Ek model 1 and using it as a canvas he added features that he thought would be well received by the GIs in WW2.
Along the way that one design morphed into two different models! This rendition added a lot of features but still stayed true to the conventional double edged dagger. Starting with the handle Rick kept the sturdy full tang feature just as the originals with the protruding skull crushed at the end. Rick also kept the very distinctive scalloped handle scales that is very much Ek.
The crossguard was added into the full tang construction thereby guaranteeing a rock solid hold. The blade is where things really depart from the original. Rick decided on a hollow ground double edge and instead of grinding those edge bevels he 3-D milled them which allowed Rick to also incorporate a armor piercing tip! With a deep fuller running the length of the blade it gives it the I beam toughness.All this making this Traditional Ek a very capable dagger. Blade Length: Approximately 6.50 165 mm.
