The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
My good friends found this old knife when cleaning out a trailer of neat stuff that belonged to their dad!
They thought I might know something about it, but I'm stumped...
Can anyone identify this knife?
Could it have been from the military?
I appreciate any and all input!
Well if I had to guess at this one, I would say it definitely a handmade knife. What looks to be the handle of a tool, possibly a wrench, and then fitted with a blade. That could have been welded or or possibly something hammered out to form the blade. It is hard to make that determination from the picture. I am always amazed at ingenuity!
Yep! Jan nailed it spot on. It's from an old military mess kit.
You can still buy surplus ones.
Jan - thanks so much! I appreciate everyone's input! I had told my friends that I was confident one of the "knife crazies" at iKnifeCollector would know!!!
I was going to say just that.It was a US ARMY mess set knife.
