Item #6 is an old World War - II U.S. MARINE CORPS utility knife (Knife Pocket, General Purpose). Marked KINGSTON on the bail. The early Marine Corps knives had the screwdriver blade on the same end as the main blade (No. 5). Later in the war all knives were changed to have the screwdriver on the same end as the awl (No. 6). The marked U.S. Marine Corps knives are hard to find. Frank Trzaska has wriiten several fine articles on this type of knife in Knife World. All blades are excellent with good snap. Steel handles perfect. As found, some staining on blades. Brass liners. See photos. The only brand markings on these U.S. MARINE CORPS knives are marked KINGSTON or Stevenson on the bail and are hard to find.
