    This dagger looks to be what is known as a 'theater made' knife,
    except that it is very well constructed, so it probably falls
    under the category of 'private purchase'.

    It is not an issue piece, but very nice..............!
    Regards,

    I can only wonder if the knife was carried on Tarawa, Into Naples,or Chosin and if it was ever used for its intended purpose.
