Ok Ron, you got me with the picture and accompanying words , and I`m guessing as well as a few others that commented. The reasons "cited" I came across while researching this variant. Their words not mine. However, looking out from my microcosm, I believe there are more of these out there than originally thought, or at least I thought. Reckon we respectfully agree to disagree.
To be honest, I have researched records and can NOT find any official record of any rejection or even discussion of the extra pyramid . I think that common sense would tell you that there would be complaints and rejection for something that served no real purpose and caused discomfort with use.
For those of you that suggest they are much more common than most would believe, I suggest that those that have one or more to photograph them and show them on the forum.
I am suggesting that any one can claim one, but I think to get an honest survey they need to verify their knife with a photo of it
We have one person already claiming one and that was in 25 years of collecting. You folks that think it is more common, how many do you have ???
I can honestly say that I became aware of the variety about 35 to 40 years ago and I have been active in gun shows and collecting for over 65 years I am 80 years old , still very active and continue to attend Gun and Military shows and have published 6 to 8 recent articles in the field and have 5 or 6 pending, so I am not a johnnie come lately.
