    Default Theater Knife?

    Picked this knife up for cheap at a flea market. It's made with a Starrett saw blade, alunimum cross guard and a wood handle with 2 .38 special shells for rivetts. I have seen a couple of other theater knives made with Starrett saw blades but I really don't know very much about them. Any suggestions on what it is? It's very sturdy and would make a good machette.Click image for larger version.

    Thank you. I checked around and found the materials used to make it were available during WW2 and 38's were a fairly common side arm for the US Navy. The blade is a little over 12" long. I don't know for sure if it is a theater knife though, the guy at the flea market had no idea where it came from. Have you seen similar theater knife designs? Whatever it is, it's definately US made.
