unusual camping knife

I have had this since about 1980.  Pommel secured with steel pin and brass threaded nut on tang.  Unusual looking grip is very ergonomic and fits my hand nicely.  Different ..

Thanks Gentlemen for your kind words.
I  must locate the WW2 and Viet NAm era EK's I purchased at the same time.  Got them at a SMALL Atlanta knife show and the owner would only part with all 3 at one time.  The WW2 had no sheath but I still felt like I had a great day. 

I do not think you see many EK "camping/hunting" knives around.  This thing is stout and meant to be used.  For all these years it has just kept it's brothers company ::)
