    Default Standard issue knife or custom field made?

    I picked this knife up at an antique store about a week ago. I've seen WW2 knives with the same pommel and blade on the internet, but they are very diverse. Any help is always appreciated. Oh and sorry for the bad pictures.

    Really? Do you have any idea of what it might be?

    This is not the Kabar USMC knife/USN Mk 2 knife (Left hand photo).

    Looks more like the Mk 1 or a commercial hunting knife.

    They are similar aren't they - however I think it is a commercial model made by Kabar.

    More likely a private purchase. It definitely isnt military issue. Mk 1 Navy knife lookalike.

    I didn't think about that. For all we know it could be a hunting knife.
