    I personally have never seen this sort of combo as an WW2 escape aid, military or commercial. The handle of the knife and the chrome finish do not lend themselves to being a military item. My guess is that it is a commecial item dating from anywhere between the 1940's to the 1980's, however, as always I am willing to be proved wrong and there maybe somebody out there who can give you a more definative answer!

    That is purely a civilian purchase item but the tang stamp dates it to 1919-1945. Go over to WWW.AAPK and they will give you better info and a few good offers for it as well. They don't turn up often in that good of condition.
