Hey Dmitri, are you coming to Mystic? I will have a lot of great WW2 knives for sale there, hope you make it this year!! They will have 8" tables finally so I will have an even better selection of old knives than in the past. Best, Gene
In an old ad similar to the Camillus one that shows the "Kabar Knives of WW2", the Kabar Commando is included in the line-up. I think it was a PX item as I know of no contracts for them, and Kabar also had USN-MK1 contracts.
The Commando was also being advertised/sold after the war. I think Kabar must have had A LOT of them left over after the war.
zzyzzogeton : Thanks for your post. I have suffered under a delusion for years now. I thought both the Bright and parkerized Commando had fullers, I went back and read the article and no, the dark one was flat ground. I do not have a dark one only the bright which is below along with some other six inch utilities which might be of interest. The copied info is courtesy of Mike Silvey. Bob you are welcome
