That's an Air Force survival knife.  Did Ka-Bar make those?

CORRECT !


It was issued to my dad in October 1954 when he was working at Patrick AFB in Stewart Florida. I don't know the manufacturer.

I found this topic very interesting as I am in the process of painting my jeep at this time, I was using two body parts to try and match up the paint as close as possible , after painting the body I dug out my samples from my body and compared for colour and shine or glossiness and compared to the single stage paint I used and I found colour was good and for gloss or shine it was spot on, the only thing that is noticeable is the thickness or possibly the number of coats of paint the factory applied to the body , I applied 3 coats of paint and from what I can tell the factory may have applied one very heavy coat or two light coats of paint as just enough paint to cover the steel but still look good, one of the things to think about is paint cost money and the factory is not going to apply any more paint than is necessary , just like any car manufacture they will look at saving penny's per part and in the big picture it turns into dollars per vehicle of profit.     
lets go for a rip eh bud

Many times the paint application or thickness will be specified in the BOM (Bill of Materials) for a specific vehicle.

I'm fairly certain I have that information somewhere, and I will try to confirm.
