- ID'd WWII US Marine Corps Raider Stiletto Fighting Knife. ID'd circa 1942. Comes with original sheath. This is a textbook example of one of these very rare Camillus manufactured knives. The handles on these are very fragile as they were manufactured of zinc alloy that has almost always cracked over the years. This knife exhibits none of this cracking. The leather sheath and metal fittings are original to the knife, although a couple of the rivets have come loose.
