Not the USAF Pilots knife but the knife my father carried on over 300 combat missions in Vietnam 1968-1969.
That's a Navy MK. 2. My dad had a Mk. 2 and the Pilot knife from this thread. I remember playing with both as a kid and also sneaking them back into his "gear box" before he got home from work haha. I have both in front of me now, doing some research on some childhood memories and that's how I found this thread.After he got back as a 10 year old i used to sneak it out of his 50’s issued foot lokker and play Daniel Boone in the woods behind our hous in Kent Washington. Then sneak it back lol
Bcamos welcome. Are you saying my dads Knife is a Navy MK2?
All really good info to know. As is with information regarding the military and production is un explainable mysteries do exists. For example my dad used this knife in Vietnam in early to middle of 1968 ending one year later in 1969. Was the only weapon he brought home with him as he told me while flying it always dug into his back.
So what do you think? Could it be possible these disc are died from the russet brown?
