    I used to have one just like it, only without the USMC stamp. So if it is military issue, they also sell them commercial.

    Likely a standard, commercially available knife.

    I have an older model Kabar, without the serrations.

    My Father gave this to me when I was flying.
    It was issued to him when he flew.
    Shroud cutter and switch blade combo.

    I had one of the original Gerber Mark II's, gave it to a college friend when he enlisted in the Army in the fall of 1979 and was headed for Ranger training.
