Here is another that my father had. This is a pretty straight forward aluminum knuckle knife. I'm pretty sure this is a Commonwealth Forces knife as well.

Nice made in New Zealand knife, these were available for purchase in N.Z. Around 1941-44 and only used in the Pacific theatre. Many were purchased by U.S. troops stationed in New Zealand,  The scabbard is made of stiff leather and cracks and breaks easy, and the rivets are steel which rusted in the topics, I advise you not to put the knife in the scabbard.

Very nice Tom, that's as nice as I've ever seen that knife, sheath combination in.

Thanks for showing.

I am wondering why the metal of the blade is the black color.  Some kinds of 'tool steel' do this, I think which has been hardened.  Odd.
