"Sometimes, Nostalgia Is Best Left In The Past"
I must admit, the thought of owning a knife that was on the verge of celebrating its' sesquicentennial year of production was rather alluring. However, the specimen that I received had been very shoddily assembled. In fact, the bail was even broken at the attachment rivet. There was a time when cutlery made in Solingen, Germany was, well, "the cat's meow". That's not the case here. If it's a nostalgic and handy army knife you're looking for, seek out a Joseph Allen & Sons 2-piece British Army Knife (NSN9757402). You'll be quite pleased with that trip down memory lane!
