Hi Tony, Is that a Robbins Dudley knuckle blade knife on your cover pic? I have found two really good books on WWII knives, you may have them already....Knives of the United States Military World War II by Michael W. Silvey, 249 pgs. w/ color pics & Pocket Knives of the United States Military, 135 pgs. w/ color pics. Mr. Silvey has written other books but they are out of circulation. I used to have his card, which I can't find but I do have his address. Nice fellow & very knowledgeable. Couldn't find your dagger in his books but did find the push dagger. Your dagger has a similar butt cap to knives made by Pal Cutlery but I couldn't find a pic of a dagger with that same butt cap only clip blades....
