This dagger by John Nelson Cooper features a satin finished double edged blade, .214" blade stock and 1.26" blade depth, hidden tang construction. The handle has a brass guard and butt, black paper and canvas micarta grip. Has some light scratches. Excellent condition for the age.
Note from the consignor:
This dagger was carried by me for two tours of duty in Vietnam from 1966 to 1968. I was an Army door gunner on a helicopter gun ship in the 173rd AHC, 1st aviation brigade and infantry squad leader/platoon sgt. It's now time to pass it on for someone else to keep and enjoy this vintage piece of craftsmanship.
