    "1945 THOS. BLAZE" is the mark on this fixed blade.

    The blade measures 7 inches, 11 3/4 overall. I know nothing of its history except that it was NOT sold to me as something special. By that I mean I don't think the date was scratched on the knife to fool an unwary buyer. Is it a Theater Knife, made by a member of our armed forces in the "theater of war"? I doubt I'll ever know. But I do believe that the handle is Micarta or something like it. What do you all think? Thanks for watching! T-A

    Two Bull Nose in OD Green Micarta. The top one used and carried quite a bit. The covers have turned black from the oils and sweat in my hands while the bottom one has never been carried or used. I'd sand the top one down to return it to it's former self but it would be a futile exercise as it will only turn black again.

    Interesting side-by-side, ED. I’ve carried both my OD and Natural Canvas Bull Noses quite a bit, and they’ve darkened signifcantly. Here they are when I first got them:
