As with ANY metal object, such as firearms (guns), steel helmets, metal (aluminum) Army canteens, Army mess kits (forks, spoons, plates), swords, knives, aluminum framed Vietnam era "ruck-sack frames" (infantryman back packs), etc. One cannot tell it's history; metal can be refurbished (re-newed), and counterfeits can easily be made. Non-metal objects such as clothing (uniforms), plastic canteens, tents, wooden ammunition boxes, and vehicles with "serial numbers" can, as a rule, be their age, and cannot easily be re-touched, as the material can deteriorate. UNLESS the metal object, such as the "camillus pilot's knife" has an "original" SERIAL NUMBER engraved upon it, the only way it can be identified as a bona-fide Viet War knife is if it was obtained by you from the "original owner." In such a case, the original owner would explain the knife's history...and then, the ONLY question remaining is, "is his history of the knife" true or not.

Probably; but how are you going to know that they will be real Viet Vets? Not long ago, there was a rash of fakes in America and some foreign countries. Wannabes from grunts to jet fighter pilots, all Vietnam War veterans...supposedly. Be sure of proper documentation (Proof) before "buying their stories."
