Navy Mark 2?

Article about: I think this is a navy markII? I am guessing by the marking is a Vietnam era knife. Any ideas? Would the crossguard be worth straightening, and if I did it would need another leather spacer

    Default Navy Mark 2?

    I think this is a navy markII? I am guessing by the marking is a Vietnam era knife. Any ideas?
    Would the crossguard be worth straightening, and if I did it would need another leather spacer or leave it alone?
    Thanks in advance.

    I think this is earlier than Vietnam and I would just leave it as it is

    It's a Camillus. The crossguard is not marked on this one.
    The tip has sure got a lot of wear on it.........

    Steve what type of knife is it a mark II? I did not pay much for it and I mainly purchased it to fill a reproduction K-bar Sheath as a cheap fix for my USMC display until I can find a nice K-Bar

    Yes - Mark 2. During manufacture, the crossguards were
    often bent, so just leave it be.........

    Thanks Steve you seem to know a lot about US knives... but then again you know a lot about everything
    Do you know any good knife references or did you just learn from experience?

    I have collected knives and bayonets since I was a teenager - US military
    blades in particular, and the 'US-M3' is a favourite. 'US Military Knives
    Collectors Guide' by Michael Silvey and Gary Boyd is a fairly
    good book that covers alot.

    I've attended all the militaria and gun shows up here for over 35 years.
    Collecting has been a huge passion all my life. When I find something
    I'm interested in, I research all the available material I can get
    my hands on to learn as much as possible.

    Lol - I have quite a lot of books, actually.........
    Regards,


    Steve.
