Iwo Jima Military Knife

Located about 650 miles from Japan, the strategically placed island of Iwo Jima represented the difference between victory and defeat for the Allied forces in the Pacific Theater. Following eight months of preparation and three continuous days of pre-invasion bombing, U.S. Marines stormed the shores of Iwo Jima in an attempt to take the island. Their primary objective was to secure control overa dormant volcano named Mount Suribachi, the high ground and control point for the rest of the island.

The battle lasted a grueling four days. Even with the pre-invasion airstrikes and artillery barrages, the Japanese still maintained a significant defensive presence on the island. The black sands of Iwo Jima would have to come inch by inch for the 70,000 Marines attempting to take thehill. Fighting through repeated banzai charges, concrete bunkers and dense jungle environment, the Marines often had to engage their foes in hand-to-hand combat, relying on their tenacity and trustedKa-Bar combat knives that came into regular service in 1944.

Finally, after suffering staggering losses, the Marines gained control of the summit on February 23, 1945. That event was captured in one of the most iconic military photos of ever taken and provided inspiration to a nation weary from war. Just over a month later, and at the cost of 25,000 casualties - including close to 7,000dead - Allied forces claimed victory over the entire island, and the battle was over. These heroic sacrifices helped the Allies gain air superiority over the Pacific and victory in the second world war.
