If you can't see the tang, your knife isn't full strength. The tang is the backbone of the knife...and if it's not full tang, it's not full strength!

Ek is the original full-tang knife.

Back in world War II...
- The Ka-Bar didn't have it.
- The V-42 didn't have it.
- The Randalls didn't have it.
- The F-S didn't have it.
- The Ek had it!

Ek is the only maker whose knives have always (nearly 70 years!) been full tang! Ek Strong--Always Strong!

Micarta grips now feature the new Gripping Grooves™

The new Gripping Grooves are wider and deeper for much more gripping power, especially in the all-important thrust, especially if the grips are wet with sweat, blood, mud, water or oil. These deep grooves were inspired by the military NDT (Non-Directional Tread) "lug" tire-tread pattern, proven for gripping power in the mud of World War II, Korea and Vietnam on U.S. military vehicles. These and our Checkered Walnut grips provide better gripping power than any other knives in the world.

The wide Gripping Grooves have now been extended to cover the flat 'boss' areas of the grips around the two lower X-Head Fasteners -- for even better gripping power. You have to feel 'em to believe 'em!

Blades with Custom EtchingsNEW! CUSTOMIZE YOUR KNIFE

Special blade etchings are available to reflect your military pride for the presentation (left) side of your blade. See the The Knives Special Blade Etchings section of this site.

Full-Tang Design – The Strongest

Full-Tang DesignAll Ek Commando Knives are full-length, full-width, full-thickness tang construction -- the undisputed strongest -- a feature rarely found on other knives (because it requires more steel). If your knife doesn't have a full tang, it's not designed for maximum strength. In photo at left, Ek is at left, a "Survival" knife is center, and the Gerber MarkII is at right.
