    An interesting theater made knife which was brought back from Katanbga, Africa.  This was a breakaway part of the Congo.  This combat knife is marked 530/R on one side and #0271 on the reverse.  Brass mounted with military style leather grip,  this piece comes in a well made leather scabbard marked Al Buraglia, Katanga 15 April 1963.  We have no information on the same. Used by an aid worker, a member of the UN team or a mercenary.  An interesting combat knife in any event.
