Here is a knife I got many years ago from the late Dicks Sams. It looks like a Navy mk 1 to me but there is no navy markings. It is guard marked KA BAR Olean, NY. Sheath is unmarked. I would appreciate if someone would let me know what this thing is.
Unknown Ka Bar for opinions

Can also be found in a bright finish.
These fall under the form of a 6 inch general utility knife during the war.

Ka-bar 6-inch hunting knife purchased by the US Army before the M3. Ka-bar, Case, Queen, Williams, Robeson, Pal, and Kinfolks made these knives, IIRC.

Some examples. The bright blade version has a different sheath and pommel than the Parkerized one does.
The common bright blade version also has a fuller.
