Camillus WW2 Kabar?
Posted 13 August 2019 - 12:07 PM
Since Im not into collecting edged weapons I would ask the collectors for an expertise on this example.
Is it a complete authentic WW2 set?
The overall look is pretty salty and homogene to me, as well as the inscribed name on it.

Without a date carved it with a verifiable name, there is no way to tell - it could have been issued during WW2, during the interegnum, during the Korean War, during the post-KW period, even into the VN period, if it was still in stock. The Navy stock system still had thousands of the knives in stock after WW2 ended, which is why it was 1961 before a new contract was given to Utica.

Thanks for the reply. It definitely shed some new light on the knife for me.
