Browning BAR "Sporting Fielder" Engraved Knife
The Browning BAR is one of those key products which have defined the Browning mystique throughout the last century. Much of the fame of today's sporting BAR began through the fame of the original military BAR designed by John M. Browning near the end of World War I. This rifle, called the BAR M1918, was commissioned by the U.S. Army in an effort to break the stalemate of trench warfare in the battlefields of France and Belgium. It is considered one of the first, and certainly one of the most effective, of all the automatic centerfire "light machineguns" ever made. Its official U.S. military use began in 1918 and continued until the Vietnam war. It was used primarily as a SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon) for decades and proved very difficult to replace.
Today's Browning knife line is certainly the best ever. With the friendship and partnership between Browning and famed custom knife maker/designer Russ Kommer, Browning knives have reached a new level of quality and functionality.
