Todays find. No markings on the knife or the scabbard. Appears to have been made from a file. 8 inch blade.

It is a WWII Ben Rocklin knife, J sticker. I attached an article from the May 27, 1945 issue of Yank magazine and an ad from the July 1945 issue of Field & Stream. I wish I could buy a dozen of them at the $7.49 COD Field & Stream price.

Looks Ben Rocklin made to me. Scabbard and knife are about as close as you can get to the picture on page 213 in Mike Silvey's book.  SKIP

Well, that's pretty darn cool. Thanks guys! It was at a flea market on a table of broken pocket knives and matchbox cars.
