OSS adopted for its own use this distinctive knife, which the British Army issued to soldiers during WWII. Note the marlin spike, sheepsfoot cutting blade, screwdriver, and can opener. OSS Capt. William H. Pietsch, Jr., carried this one when he parachuted into Nazi-occupied France in the summer of 1944 on his first Jedburgh mission.
