the tang stamp reads
USA It is 9 1/2" long overall with a 5 3/16" upswept blade. The top of the blade has a grooved thumb rest. The blade has some light pitting and is dark in some places. It is just an honest used knife with some wear. This was one heck of a great pattern and still has years of life left in it!! The handle is made from alternating black and aluminum spacers; likewise showing signs of use and wear but it is tight and solid. The alumunum pommell is pinned through the side with two steel pins. The hilt is aluminum The excellent sheath fits perfectly and is obviously made for this exact pattern knife although I do not believe it to be original. .99cent start and NO RESERVE $6.00 shipping via USPS Priority Mail....combine unlimited items at no extra cost.
