Made by Gregsteel in Australia. Did they also make spoons and forks?

Nice condition too!

Gregsteel was mainly a cutlery and made several military US knives.

Found another maker of the Aussie Made US mess kit knife. This time it's "Diamond".

I have a Diamond made knife in my collection. I was being used as a paint stirrer when I found it. It was covered in years of paint and took a long time to get it all off.

 

I have not seen any Australian made spoons or forks.
