Very nice example of the knife used on the Survival rafts. Bright yellow / orange handle that was made to float and had a snap to connect it to the scabbard. The scabbard to this one is probably still attached to a raft somewhere this is only the knife. 2 1/2 inch blade that is curved with the blade potion to the inside of the curve. Rounded blunt end to you don't accidentally put a hole in your boat. These were designed to cut things, clean fish or whatever you may need something sharp for. The bright unsharpened blade is excellent and maker stamped WESTERN. Excellent example of this hard to find knife!!
