Hey all,

I'v recently found this knife in the house, i believe it came from an old army surplus shop that used to be near us but i'm not too sure. The handle is plastic and in the pouch there was a very small emergancy snare and fishing kit. I havn't measured the blade but at a guess its about 5-6 inches.









Curiosity has gotten the better of me and i'm dieing to know what it is. The blade needs a bit of tlc.

thanks for looking any info at all will be helpful.

The blade looks much (VERY MUCH) like the old USAF pilot's survival knife. But that had a leather washer handle. and an ambidextrous leather sheath.

I used to have a US pilot survival knife (as you describe) and it's not that similar. I don't have mine anymore, but I think Robbi has one - there's a pic floating around somewhere of it.

Just the blade. It looks very much like the one I was issued (still have it actually)

Here's the old style I was issued: www.knivesplus.com/QN-499-Ontario.HTML

Here's the next generation knife that replaced it as an issue item: www.knivesplus.com/ontario-asek-knife-qn-asek.html

Yep. That's it Robbi. You've done a great rework/mod on the sheath. Is that one a Camillus or an Ontario?

The OP's knife is in my 1993 Whitby Catalogue. I don't have a price but it is described as:

SK2222 7 1/2" Whitby Special Forces Knife. Olive drab handle and cammo pouch, black blade.

There were two other versions of this knife, one with a stainless blade and black pouch and another with
a sheath (not shown) with wire cutter.
