Polish translation:bliski kumpel, zaufany przyjaciel, prawdziwy kumpel/przyjaciel
Explanation:
kemo sabe: close friend, faithful friend, trusted scout, trusty friend, trusty scout -- zaufany kumpel, przyjaciel, bliski zaufany przyjaciel, prawdziwy kumpel, pewniak, swoj czlowiek/chlop

"The origin and meaning of the words "kemo sabe", often heard in in "Lone Ranger stories, are often debated. The first use of the words apparently occurred in an episode in which Tonto is helping a severely wounded Texas Ranger recover from injuries inflicted by The Cavendish Gang. Tonto and the Ranger recognize each other as childhood friends, when they called each other "kemo sabe" (faithful friend)."
"The accompanying caption pointed out that the name stood for "trusty friend" or "trusty scout." These two tidbits from history dovetail nicely and are in
keeping with the meaning of the term as officially stated for the last
sixty some years.
