The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I know this has been tried a few times but it always seems to go nowhere. So one more try. Show us your military knives! Let's see some bayonets, combat machetes, Combat hawks, fighting knives, commando daggers, paratrooper switch blades. If it was made under contract for the Military or was just a knife made for use in combat let's see it. It doesn't matter how big or small if it folds or if it is fixed. If it was used by the military let's see a picture and read a little info on the knife!
Thanks, Tobias. I might like to have an E-1 Survival kit from those days, but I wanted no parts of SAC. The spit & polish, stories of seemingly endless alerts & drills, SAC scarf, shoulder ropes.
Your dad got a big surprise when he got back after cook & baker school. He may have had brown boots, a leftover from the Army, and possibly even issued gray fatigues, although that may have been a SAC thing only.
