Again we are looking for help on this one, What does a Mark 3 Life-Raft knife look like??In a recent exchange with our good friend Tom Williams, Company Historian, Camillus Cutlery Co.The Mark 2 is listed as a "Knife, Combat with Sheath" so we were thinking it would be around that line of knife.Further investigation proves it to be a Life-Raft knife.We also know that Camillus, Case and Kinfolks made the same pattern knife and sold them to the government for the AAF so why not Marbles?Either way it is an interesting subject that we wish to know more about.Not official military purchased knives they are really cool variations to those collecting such.We picked up all three for our collection and an extra or two for trades at some future date.
A recent offering from Camillus Cutlery are the tried and true military knives coated in a Desert Tan epoxy coating.
Also included in the parcels are a deck of cards, a book of crossword puzzles, snacks, games, suntan lotion, tissues, a hacky sack ball, moist towelettes, a hand-held fan and a multipurpose tool packaged in a lightweight, durable, reusable travel bag.
Each bag also has an acknowledgement card that the gift is made possible through the generosity of the American people.
So far we have not found any evidence that they were purchased by the government.
We all assume that the Bakelite pommel models were wartime issue but can we prove it not yet.Any machete collectors out there have one so marked? A recent solicitation for knife purchase by the government caught our eye.
