    I will defer to others with more experience. But the maker mark looks slightly different than mine...maybe just how hard it was stamped? (lighter stamp?)

    Scabbard looks correct with appropriate stamps.

    Overall I think it is good but as said, just a question on the maker marks.

    Your best resource is our own Militarione (Lance). Check out his thread here.

    You right... the manufacturer's marks look strange when I compared to them...

    I would ask Lance. It could be just the stamping...don't count it out just yet.

    You should shoot Lance a PM. Ask him to take a look. There are others here as well that know these knives. Hopefully they will be around.
