They’re calling it the ‘Lake Effect’. Yes – it’s a tactical ice scraper from Ka-Bar.

Note: engage a sense of humor. Comments of outrage will be mocked and the commenter reviled.

What is it made of? I use to have a little one years ago that could double as a good slahing weapon.

Not long enough. How about an ice katana?

If I were home this winter I'd request on for testing. -30 something windchill yesterday I guess, but a nice 50 here in Afghanistan.


Christopher January 22, 2013 at 7:24 pm

I want one!

I should have picked up an ice scraper, they were selling them for $5 at SHOT. I did buy the hockey mask they were selling for $20 though. Money well spent on something that you know came from a company that can take a joke.

I just use a jug of lukewarm water, warm enough to melt the ice and cool enough not to craze the windscreen with thermal shock.

Maybe they can make a tactical kettle?

A pop-out blade on the other end would be cool for self-defense at night in a parking lot…

Where can I get one of these Ice Scrapers.


Matt January 23, 2013 at 6:45 am

Will they make an FDE version?


Jim January 23, 2013 at 7:49 am

Does it come in Coyote Brown?

Dang it! And I was hoping for the Ka-bar Tactical Spoon!!!


Slag January 23, 2013 at 2:20 pm

@Stone: they make the HOBO camp knife, which has a spoon , fork AND knife blade!


Epididymitis January 23, 2013 at 12:36 pm

Cool. If they built knives they'd make a fortune!

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "Improvise, Adapt, Overcome". OOHRAH!


Glenno January 23, 2013 at 10:59 pm

Yes, that is the correct spelling!

"Lake Effect"… sounds like the weather in Milwaukee. 18" of snow if you were within 3 blocks of the lake, everywhere else gets trace amounts.
