    Question US Utica CutCo Fighting Knife

    I've got a few questions about my recent acquisition. Is this actually a Ka-Bar knife? I think this may have been issued post WWII, am I correct? If so, how old is it exactly? I can't find any definitive information on it and your help is appreciated, thank you!

    Says 'Utica', so no, not a Ka-Bar - but all Mark 2 knives
    are generally known as Ka-Bars, whether made by
    that company or not.

    I believe your knife is Vietnam era, due to the
    7 rivet sheath and the fungicidal treatment
    to the leather.........

    Isn't the reason the leather is this dark from aging?

    This is a post War Mark 2.

    If it has a US over the maker's mark it is post WWII.
