    It's a cheap copy of a Kabar, likely made in Japan-possibly India.

    I think the stamp says "Solingen", which, if it does would be a bit odd. :eek: :D

    Kutaho, I sent you a PM at the other site before I wandered over here. ;) :)

  6. I kind of thought solingen
    myself artabar. that kind of
    got me a little excited.
    it bothers me that down below
    is scratched out.
    It would kill me if it said

    Then there's the fact that it has four
    instead of five finger grooves, and the
    cut out at the back end of the blade.
    Mr. DeShivs may be right.

    Sheath is the real McCoy though.

    Yeah, it would kinda suck having a WWII era U.S. knife stamped with a German city.

    I was thinking maybe it could be a pre or post war knife but I can't find any production or issue dates.

  8. Just finished burnishing those scratches down
    Nip knife....
    use it for weeding:D
    Now i gotta fill that sheath;)

    Just a note, there is a k-bar style
    made in Solin, Japan i just found out.
    sorry ta waste yer time.
    Thanks for responding.
