Seeking dimensions.

Hey everyone I'm not to sure if this really falls under the historical inspiration section or not but I'm looking for the dimensions for an original US Marine Corps Ka-Bar. I've been crawling the web searching and havent really come across what I'm looking for. If anyone has a link to the dimensions or even one they can measure for me I would be very grateful.

Not sure if this helps, but I used to own one and recall that it measured out to exactly 12 inches overall.

Thats a start
I think I've got some pretty close measurements made. I scaled one up from a good sized pic I found. Should be close enough.

Thanks a million!
