For those that have been following here is another I inherited from my grandpa. This is a vietnam era 14 attack with the green handle and exposed tang. I donít know the year grandpa bought this one as I do not have his notes on it. Hope you enjoy the pics!

Any chance anyone has a magic trick for removing and preventing the brass from corroding on the sheath?

Yes....donít keep the knife in the sheath. Store them separately.

Mell73,

You will get better results outside, if you take the photos on an overcast day with no sun. It "erases" the shadows and provides better identification.

Go to: "How To Improve Your Knife Photos", in the Picture Gallery.

Look at Steve's (Holzinger258) photos on post #129356 & #129357 in and Tony's photos on post#129340-129342. See how much difference there is in theirs just by "removing" the sun. Hope this helps.

Thanks Gang I appreciate the input! I'll try the toothpicks and read the post on outdoor pics.

P.S. Buck, I might need a model 20 or 11 after the new year so keep me on that email list!
