I just acquired this fine set. Belonged to Don Donaldson who was a Helicopter Huey Pilot with the U.S. Army Air Cavalry in Vietnam.

That may be the most significant set I've seen to date.

The back of the sheath is quite worn and I don't see any stamps anywhere. I will post some more pics tomorrow of the gun belt and the back, sides of the scabbard.

Is it possible they have the original order records at RKC for this set of knives?

Mitchell, what are the chances the entire leather rig was made by Johnson? Do you know if he made holsters and cartridge belts?

That's what I wanted to know Tom. That would be something!

My guess is the holster rig was brought to Johnson and the sheath combo was riveted on there, or, the sheath combo was brought to the holster maker and was riveted on there.

Take your pick.

I don't think any of this rig was made by Johnson. Look closely at the stitching. Especially at the throat of each sheath. It's not back stitched. At least not the way Mr. Johnson did it.
