I had 2 of these knives, got them years ago at an Army-Navy Store. I sold one at auction last year, it was in a little better condition than this one, and brought $75.00. If it had been in excellent condition it would have maybe brought double that!

That's a cool one Em!

I used to have a Paratrooper's switchblade knife. It was orange handled and had a sharp hook that popped out like a switchblade. It was supposed to be used in the event the paratrooper got tangled up in his lines. He could open the blade one handed, and cut the cords to free himself. I sold it a few years ago.
