M-3 knife with M-6 scabbard?

These pieces are in my profile picture. Issued to my father in law in 1966 when he was flying F-105s with the 421st TFS in Thailand. I've seen the knives before but never the cut down scabbard. It was issued this way not modified by the pilots. Anyone have more info? Thanks, JamesSee More
