The interesting knife pictured here (alongside the GS AAUK) is almost identical to the one pictured on Plate 264 as well as the back cover. I quote from Ron Flook:

"264. Thought to be the current issue version of the magazine knife, this knife has its blade made of what appears to be some sort of alloy with bronze finish. The grips are wood secured by three aluminium rivets. The knife is totally unmarked and the date of its introduction into service is unknown. Blade is 7 inches, overall length is 12.25 inches."

Mine is fully marked and the rivets appear to be brass or bronze.
