The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Greetings all. I have a knife in my collection I would like to know more about. First off I attained this knife from my fathers estate , when he passed age 76 a few years back, in cleaning his home this knife (and some others) were up in a closet. I know he servered in Korea in the 50's, I have no clue if he got this knife while there.
Knife: OD Green Its a OTF Out the front gravity feed knife. Blade is held in handle until you depress the "trigger" ? then with a swift hand motion it thrusts the blade out of the front , firmly locking in place.To release the blade and return to the stow away position you have to just up-rite the knife and press the "trigger" (not sure of the correct term there) and the blade drops back into the handle .
The blade itself is well worn, it looks to be sharpened many a time , see pics. Its a hefty knife in hand, not aluminum, the scales are made of a injected plastic , but seem to be quite sturdy (even with cracked corner) see pics.
Just thought all that read this would enjoy seeing this knife as well I would appreciate any feedback and or to tap your knowlege. Thanks in advance. Glenn
