USAAF C-1 Survival Vest Large Knife
Knife, 2-Bladed 5" Cutting, 5" Saw. By The Colonial Cutlery Co. (only 2 manufacturers made these - The Colonial Cutlery Company, Prov, Rhode Island and the United Machine Tool Company of Grand Rapids, Michigan). Measures approximately 15cms closed, and 27cms with the knife blade extended. Black plastic grips and blued metal finish. These were placed in pocket No. 3 of the AAF C-1 emergency sustenance/survival vest.
Shows use and wear with marking to the grips, loss of blueing on the blades etc. The saw blade appears to have been carefully removed - not at all obvious unless you know where to look! A rare find nonetheless. Would be twice the price with both blades. Stock code S16819.
