Forgot to say, the knife itself is sterile, totally unmarked.
Very cool to have it mint in the box like that
Yep that's what I thought too! Without the box you would never really look at it as a genuine MOD issue knife, just another one of the commercial items.

That knife looks like mine Mike.. but without the box. Brown sheath the lot....I agree with you there Ned most of the blokes who was with me that issued these knives thought WTF???...I think those days have gone where you can sneak up on somebody with 40lb of kit on & stick it to them..& I wouldn't wear plimsols in Afghan that is for sure lol...Cheers Terry.
