I thought you might like to see a rare survivor from the WWII era. This knife was carried by a Marine who was assigned to travel with the Marine band...he never got dirty and the knife was never exposed to the harshness of the elements.

Thanks.......the blade appears to retain traces of the original factory lubricant/preservative. I suspect that this knife traveled in a foot locker or sea bag.

Don't know much about marine knifes but this one looks a lot like the KA-BAR I have.

Very nice knife!

These were known as the "MK 2" and were made by a variety of manufacturers; Ka-Bar being the arguably most famous, Camillus, Robeson, and Pal can all be found.

I am thinking of listing this knife in the for sale forum. Any opinions as to the relative value of this piece? Thanks for your input, R.W.
