I am collecting the four bladed all metal utility knives used by the
US military since WWII. They are sometimes called MIL-K knives after the military specification that defines them, MIL-K-818.

The handles are metal and usually checkered with US, USMC or US Marine Corps stamped on them, but not always. The knives are usually marked on the master blade or the bail with the makers name and a year date. A listing follows of the examples I know I need.
