Got this Kutmaster MD USN etched knife out of the bay. I believe it to be post WW2 as it has brass liners. The etch is very faint. Anyway am pleased to get it. The bone handle is cracked but my bones aren't in much better shape. Thanks for looking. ::handshake::

Not a bad crack, Floyd; looks fixed.
Love that thick, hell for stout, center liner.
You got a keeper.

Thanks Jerry, Wade, redrider, FRJ (yes it isn't bad at all and love those bones and it is built like a tank) ,Bob, (I'm a fan of long pulls as well), WillyC (it will probably never see my pocket, I usually only carry my old 72 and a Benchmade Fecas. I wanted this one to remind me of my corpsman friend who recently passed away. Ed Silva, served in Korea and Viet Nam, a Christian gentleman who saved multiple lives in his career.) Thanks again. ::handshake::

Great knife. It’s a great way to remember your friend Ed.

I was unaware of that one, I have the newer one with the shield stamped MD USN.

Camillus was still making one after the war for a while. During the war Kutmaster, utica (I think) and Camillus made them. With it not being steel liners I assume this one is post war. I have seen those with the shield and thought they were Korean war but I'm really not sure. Thanks. ::handshake::

I always thought the ones with that style can opener and the two piece ones were from before the war. Once the hook style was invented they stopped using the older styles? Am I way off?
