The company I work for worked with the Army and Marines back in 2005/2006 and the Marines, in thanks, presented us with a ceremonial Ka-Bar dagger/knife. I offered to build a display case for the knife as long as the company paid for the materials. Took me 3 months…but it’s still one of my all time favorite projects. Ment a lot to make it. It’s still in our main lobby at the office.

MaxS, That’s one beautiful display case. That would make any Marine proud. Myself, 1967-1971. Great design and great build. Thanks for sharing and welcome to Lumber Jocks.

Nice case for a fitting gift. Good to see pride in the people that keep us free. Without our servicemen we would not be able to enjoy the freedom we have today.
