Awesome Model 16 from the height of the US inolvement in Viet Nam.
This is one outstanding example of a Model 16. I cannot find any signs of use, sharpening, or even minor scratches. Truly a time machine.
The knife is in standard configuration with thumb notches.
Clearly a separate "S" stamping, and an unlined thong hole with original para-cord.
The heavily waxed sheath is a trait of Maurice Johnson during this time, and almost feels like wood. Definitely meant to last in a hostile environment.
This knife/sheath combo would be difficult to improve upon.
Note: patch is for display only, not included.
