||MK 2 Naval combat knife identified to sailor.
John C. Laity, Jr.,(died 1999) personalized his Naval knife while serving on the USS
Appalachian (See details below for the WW2 service of this vessel).
It has survived with its original scabbard. The blade is in excellent condition but shows
characteristic carbon spots as would be expected on blades of this vintage.
The blade retains most of its original blueing and has never been sharpened.
Some minor rusting is present on the pommel but not prominent. The macrame on the handle
is a beautiful example honoring the sailors craft and has withstood the passage of time.
