Commemorative USMC OKC3S


Recommended Posts

I picked up these two bayonet/knives recently: came from a retired Marine Officer. I do not know more than that about the Marine because they came from a picker. To bad though.

 

Both are near un-issued but I wonder if anyone can tell me about the commemorative one. I initially found some information online that it was a run of 500 but I cannot seem to find that source of information again. I am not a big fan of "commemorative” items but this one intrigues me.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Jim

Since the OKC3S is readily available in the commercial market, to include being sold in Marine Corps Exchanges, my guess is this was a private purchase that was then engraved with the popular quote. Possibly a gift for a retirement, promotion, or other significant event or milestone. I have seen this done a number of times.
