Western Knives were not dated per say.....the only markings on any western made knife would have been the patent number and the Boulder Colorado maker stamp.....

All western knives are WW2 era...and had numeric designations and also "type" names.....

they would have ran something like this...L-77 "Commando"...which was a stiletto type knife also there were others like the G-46-8........or the Western "SeeBee".

All are WW2 era.....

Regards

Lloyd
