Scored a couple RH-36 knives recently and got them both cleaned up today. Nothing fancy, just good, solid American hardware ...

Nice.  Between the RH36, 225Q and M3, I don't know which are my favorite.  Probably the RH36 for the versatility.

Does anyone know of an approximate date at which PAL stopped making the bright finish RH-36? Thanks

I don't know if they really ever stopped making them with bright finishes.  I'd expect that when they started making knives in the first half of 1941 they were all bright finished.  It wouldn't seem unreasonable that they suspended making certain knives with a bright finish for a time during WW2, however the chances are good that they went back to bright finishing after the War.  Early 1950's and PAL got out of the knife business.
