A couple more, both Mk 2 one in leather, a Utica one in hard fiber, a guard marked Ka Bar USN Mk2. The Utica has one of the nicest leather sheaths that I have. It has a dagger look to it.

A WWI Schatt & Morgan. Supposedly made for the Canadian troops. Its really nice aside from some pitting and the fact the antiques dealer buffed it. I told him not to ever do that again. I don't care what it looks like. The scales are perfect and it appears hardly used.

Finally got around to taking a picture of my American Fork and Hoe (AFH) M-1 bayonet and scabbard. This one fits on a M-1 Garand, 03-A3, or M1903 Springfield.

Got these in a trade with Iron Hoarder. British but I don't know if they're Army or Navy. Both are 1943. If anyone can decode the stamps on the back of the blade of the second knife (last picture), I would be most appreciative.

Jerry, Iron Hoarder let you have a couple of good ones. The first is, obviously, made by Johnson, Western Works, not a common maker. The second was made by J. Rodgers and Son of Sheffield as indicated by the asterisk and Maltese Cross stamps. Rodgers made many knives for both the Army and the Royal Navy. These are Army pattern knives though some may have been issued to the R.N. The Navy pattern knife was larger with alzak (sp?) scales and only a sheep's foot blade and spike.
