These are not ww2 but I thought you SF guys might like them.
I have always had an interest in Elite forces. From British commandos to
Darby's rangers to the FSSF. From ww2 through Vietnam and beyond.
Most of my collecting interest in these areas has been some patches and
some fighting knives. ---- Here are 3 blades from the Vietname era.
A Gerber Mk2, a Randall model 15 and a John Ek model #2.
The Ek is named to a SF captain serving in Vietnam. He sent the knife back to the Ek factory (from Vietnam) to have a crossguard installed. Instead, Ek sent
him a new knife and this knife spent many years in the Ek showroom at the
Ek factory. This knife was bought from Gary Ek after the closing of the factory.
I have a letter from John Ek confirming the story.
