    Though it's not a KA-BAR, it's worth a look.

    Another knife my dad made while he was on Okinawa.......don't know where he got the blade.

    Cherished possession anyway.

    Found this older knife in some of my grandfather’s things. Was immediately drawn to the steel in the blade. I think it’s a Western, but don’t know a thing about these knives. The grip is too small to fit in my hand. Is there a way to re-grip the knife?

    I know... a late reply to the question.

    When I was handed the knife, upon seeing those marks, I half jokingly asked if those marks were anything like the notches that gunfighters put on their guns. The steely silent look that I got back, made me know enough to not say anything more, nor ask about them again.

    When my Niece's oldest daughter graduated high school , I asked her what she wanted for graduation . Without hesitation she said she wanted a USMC Ka-bar fighting knife . I got her one and now she's 41 and a paramedic for the fire department . The Ka-bar goes with her every day .

    COME TAKE IT.
