Road King Posted March 17 Share #1 Posted March 17 I recently came across a good, I believe Vietnam era W49 Bowie. This knife has all the right wear for a knife carried in Nam. What brought me to this knife was the carving on the sheath showing a Plam tree and the words VIETNAM under the tree. The words Vietnam are separated by a 5 point star. After getting the knife home I found a name engraved on the blade. DICK LEACH HHC 5BN 12INF I have done a little research and found a Dick Leach that did 3 tours in Vietnam 1967-69. He passed away in 2013. This could have been his knife? The person I got the knife from told me he buys box lots from auctions that they get from estate sales. I am hoping that someone on this site can confirm my feelings on this knife. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
