With markings on the guard the knife would have been made in the 44-45 time frame.
IMHO, the hilt is original. Somebody re-profilled the leather and pommel, probably after the knife left the military.

"Hilt" means "guard"?

Opinions? I have many. Some I don't, even, know about until I read my posts.

Thanks to everyone. It seems to be the consensus that it was re-handled. I will keep it in my collection as more of a curiousity than anything else.

Hilt is everything behind the blade. Guard, bolster,handle, pommel,however they assemble it.

Thanks Brian...been way too busy (as well as tired) lately and haven't had much opportunity to check in. Combine that with forgetting my login info whenever I'm in my usual hurry and I just don't get far sometimes. I'll try to visit more often!
The beatings will continue until morale has improved
