    Hi, new member here so forgive me if anyone has addressed this previously. I’m looking to buy a ‘USCG’ stamped fixed blade and corresponding Coast Guard logo leather sheath knife. Ka-bar only made these for a year about 10 years ago I understand. Do they come up for sale that often? Ka-bar has offered to engrave the blade with the Cost Guard name, but I was looking for the knife they produced with the USCG stamping where the USMC traditionally goes.

    Thank you!

    that's a tough one - those went out of production in 2008.
    best of luck!

    I’m sure @OFFICIAL_KA-BAR will see this. Maybe they can make another run? Must not have sold well, but another run to restock the supply and hook up another generation of Coast Guardsmen doesn’t seem like a huge deal.

    They serve our country same as the other branches, but are often overlooked.

    The reason there are no USCG 1219C2s is the probably the same as why there are no USAF 1219C2s. Not allowed. The USAF does not allow their "mark" on unapproved items and they approve almost nothing. The USCG may have a similar policy.
