    usmilitaryknives.com has your knife listed as a "MkV DESCO Knife"
    Hope this helps

    Pammy,
    Found out some more info. The MkV DESCO Knife is a "Hard Hat Divers Knife". They were made by quite a few companies, from about 1929. Desco still make this knife.
    A couple of more links for you:-

    History of the MkV helmet

    Hardhat Divers Knife

    Hope these help better than I can.
    Regards, Simon.

    Probably a modern piece, because I think earlier types
    had unplated brass sheaths. It sure looks 'new'.
    Regards,
