I have my Dad's K-Bar that he carried in Korea in the 2nd Ranger Company. Have a couple of others as well.They do still make the K-Bar. On one hand I have my dad's, European Theater, My father in laws, South Pacific, and mine. I also have some commemorative ones celebrating various events in military history. Korean War, Viet Nam War, and others. Trust me, they are still out there. The military just doesn't carry them into combat anymore. It's so sad........
When I went down range, I usually carried one of them, and on my last couple of deployments I added a CS Vietnam 'hawk as well.
I bought a Gerber Mk II back in oh, '88 or '89 but I thought the quality wasn't nearly as good as the ones I handled that were made in the early '70s.
