Is this a Kutmaster/Utica or E.G. Waterman WW2 fighting knife?

Purchased this recently and cannot locate any markings on it. However, I have seen examples of this style of knife both made by Kutmaster/Utica and EGW.

Utica is known to have taken some M4 bayonets, cut off the ring from the blade guard, and replaced the pommel with the flat spacer and lanyard ring. However, the lanyard ring is something I have usually associated with E.G. Waterman WWI fighting knives.

Thanks.

Strange, looks like an M3 blade (kutmaster)  with an EGW handle? I can see where your coming from ???

I think I've read someplace that these knives were created from government contract pattern / left over parts for the civilian market..
