4 3/4 in blade. is this a ww2 issue or a PX private purchase?? EGW made several different knives but, this is the first I have seen in this size.

I have a five-inch one, a six-inch one, and a seven-inch one.  There are probably more variations of the basic EGW knives than any other maker knife, possibly barring Western depending upon how you classify them.  There are three blade lengths, two handle variations (wood and leather washer), and multiple blade configurations (with/without saw teeth, with/without can opener, with/without marking, with/without false edge (top front), and so on).

Your knife looks a little strange, like it has been re-tipped, losing about a 1/4 of an inch from it's 5-inch length, although that may just be the photograph.
