Fished a couple of WW 2 Mil-k, Utility knives out of the bay. The first one is a first generation rendition of the then new KNIFE, POCKET GENERAL PURPOSE meant to replace most of the pocket knives that had proceeded it. The Marine Corps knife is a little different in its first generation as the screw driver was paired with the main blade. The second generation had the can opener paired with the main blade like the Army's. The second one is such an example. It is missing the thumb stud on the screw driver but does have remnants of the KINGSTON mark on the bail.DSCN6879.JPGDSCN6880.JPGDSCN6881.JPGDSCN6875.JPGDSCN6877.JPGDSCN6878.JPGDSCN6876.JPG
Congrats on your find Floyd!! ::tu::

Today this pocket knife joined my "general" CAMILLUS pocket knife collection. It is a 1959 CAMILLUS (my 2nd), single blade, 3 tool pocket knife. A nice companion for the 1949, the 1958, the other 1959 and the 1960 MIL-K's that I posted previously under this topic (page 2). It is in EXCELLENT condition and required minimal cleaning. I took some pictures and here it is.

Nice.....
Thank you JP.🍻
I think I'd be safe in saying that yes, I do believe that the
STEVENSON 45 was one of the first MIL-K style pocket knives
to be manufactured. You see more CAMILLUS, IMPERIAL and
KINGSTON (I think QUEEN made them too) MIL-K pocket knives
than you see of these. Of course.....i could be slightly mistaken.
::shrug::

Here is GOOD info on STEVENSON 45 & other MIL-K pocket knives.

Yesterday, this pocket knife became a part of my MIL-K pocket knife collection. It's my third STEVENSON 45 (stamped on the bail), single blade, 3 tool pocket knife. A companion for my other two STEVENSON 45's, my CAMILLUS 1949, my CAMILLUS 1958, my two CAMILLUS 1959's and my CAMILLUS 1960 MIL-K's that I posted here, previously, under this topic. It needed cleaning. I did what I could with it, I took some pictures and here it is.
