Original US Air Force Jet Pilot Survival/Fighting Knife with hard-to-find early-type all-leather scabbard. Rare unused condition and compete with the original unused honing stone in the front pocket. An excellent quality old-timer in minty condition; the knife is date-stamped 10-1976 on the pommel. Manufactured by Ontario Cutlery in upstate New York.
The heavy-duty hammer-like pommel still has most of the original black paint on it; the side is stamped ONTARIO / 10-1976. Stacked leather washers handle with iron guard and pommel; all parts are tight with no play. The knife is about 9-1/2″ / 24.8 cm overall; the blade is about 5″ /12.7 cm. The edge has not been re-sharpened; it’s razor-sharp still; the tip is intact. All of the original parkerized finish remaining; saw teeth on the spine appear to be unused. Original all-leather scabbard with the tie-down tip and honing stone in the pocket is in excellent condition overall, considering the age. The leather is soft and supple, the keeper in nice and tight; all stitching and rivets are intact. Some typical age-appropriate green oxidation around bronze rivers is noted for accuracy. Honing stone is unused as well. This is an excellent quality US military-issue knife and it is still in 100% serviceable condition; don’t miss your chance to add it to your collection!
This attractive USAF Ontario Jet Pilot Knife in rare unused condition has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, 100% original “as is” condition.
