    Default WWII USN/UAAF Survival Raft Knife

    This is a standard WWII issue raft knife issued to pilots. Note the rounded edges to reduce the problem with piercing the runner raft (a real concern in shark infested waters). This one is manufactured by Western. The handle is hollow and made from wood, so it floats and is yellow-orange for easy discovery. A cord is attached to the leather sheath to keep them together and the knife is attached with a single snap; which is in working condition. The dark color on the blade is the original protective coating to reduce the possibility of rust.

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Is this another one that you are trying to sell? Are you going to post this in the classified section of the forum?

    I agree. Every once in a while, the government gets it right (every once in a while).
