Wow!  Now that's a famly souvenier!  I really wish we had something like that in the family!  Thinking about it now, I have my combat knife from a few tours.  I wonder if the great-great-grandkids will be posting pics of it on WT in 100 years? cheeky

It also has the scabbard, and hangs on the living room wall, and causes lots of conversation with visitors
