    That’s awesome Jay, great piece of history for sure. I have my grandfather’s USN stamped Camillus from WWII which I treasure. Darn thing is seriously sharp. Enjoy

    This was from a friend that I have helped with a lot of computer related advice. We swap things between us frequently, though it is usually a helping hand though some times it is My Chocolate Chip Cookies or the Banana Bread his wife makes.

    I have an old one I picked up at a garage sell, the finger guards between the grip and blade is broken. I gotta figure out how to fix that and start using it.

    Very nice Jay. That indentation in the blade is called a "Blood Groove" I was told. Is that right?

    I have been told that also. I am not a knife expert, but it does lend a bit of awe to the knife even if not a fact.

    Good Afternoon All....I know he was too honest to have stolen one or even to
    have cumshawed it while on active duty, but my officer in Vietnam, Lt. Palmer A. Sell,
    presented me with his K-Bar while in Vietnam... In these latter years I in turn
    gave it to my son-in-law who lost his Marine brother in 1967 during the battle of Hue.
    The only gun I have was given to me by my S-2 yeoman after Vietnam..Jimmy Walker
    went to the LA Police Academy after his naval service and bought it there for me...
    The K-Bar will actually chop bamboo if that need ever arises for you! Chief
