click for an even bigger image



The WWII combat knife issued by the United States Navy, the Mark I. This example was manufactured by PAL. The blade ricasso is marked USN/MARK I on one side while the opposite side is marked RH PAL 35. The Parkerized finish on the blade is in very good condition. The grip is composed of leather washers and, like the knife as a whole, it shows signs of use but remains in good condition. The gray fiberglass scabbard apparently has original old Cosmoline paper wrapped around the base of the frog and the top of the scabbard.
