The Spring Summer 2013 Look Book video conveys the anxiety, excitement, and euphoria of the last few months. Sleepless nights and frantic days are made worth while now that we can stand back and admire this 100% USA Made range. Whenever possible, we've tried to take a second to enjoy a quick scoot, surf or shred, reminding ourselves that the refinement of age is nothing without the freedom of youth. Hopefully this video falls somewhere in the middle of all that.
From its origins just across the Allegheny River in Tidioute, PA, in the late 1800s, to its present-day manufacturing plant in Olean, NY, KA-BAR has consistently made some of the best hunting, survival and sporting knives in the world. The KA-BAR name became famous during WWII when its Fighting Utility Knife became standard issue for Marines shipping out to the South Pacific; the knife’s performance in the battle for Guadalcanal cemented the legacy of KA-BAR.
The company may be more than a century old, but its emerging marketing philosophy is (if you’ll forgive the pun) cutting edge: No more old media, just badass branded entertainment for the Web.
Enter Common Machine. KA-BAR asked us for an overview video that touched on the brand’s 100-plus-year history, its commitment to making high quality knives here in the USA and the range of knives in its product line.
We’re proud to present what has become known within the company as “Episode One.”
We think it’s right on point.

RUNTS, and the mantra “For Everyone”, stem from a frustration that everyone has felt at some point. A RUNT is something or someone smaller then all else around it of the same likeness. A runt has to works harder, longer and always against the odds to succeed. They are the underdog, the outsiders, the castaways. Like the outsider, RUNTS find other RUNTS. They help each other, build each other up, and use their resources…

A runt has to works harder, longer and always against the odds to succeed. They are the underdog, the outsiders, the castaways. Like the outsider, RUNTS find other RUNTS. They help each other, build each other up, and use their resources together to succeed. In one way or another, we are all RUNTS.
