I just checked gunbroker real quick. Fleabay, too. Even the butchered and bastardized ones on ebay are not cheap. Those things are pricey.

I come across them every now and then, if I see a good one will let you know. This is my best one, a bone handled WW2 Schrade Cut Co, not for sale.

Wow guys. Very nice. I hope to find one or two like it. I have a Vietnam era paratrooper somewhere but I cannot find it. In the game of hide and seek among my things it is winning.

I had several with the hook knife to cut suspension lines if entangled in trees.
Sadly, I gave them all away as gifts.

I have one of the orange ones. If I can find it it will be for sale. It is not in great shope though.

The orange survival from what I was told by a old PR buddy were made wrong. The shroud cutter was SUPPOSED to be spring loaded, not the knife blade itself. No idea if it was ever corrected.

I never heard that story, if true they made a lot wrong and none right.
