US Army knife
Main Discussion
 Theories may be removed if ... 
  1. Stated as questions or possibilities (avoid question marks, "Maybe", "I think", etc).
  2. More appropriate for another article.
  3. Illogical or previously disproven.
  4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main article.
  5. Speculative and lacking any evidence to support arguments.
  6. Responding to another theory (use discussion page instead).
  • This does not include responses that can stand alone as its own theory.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.

See the Lostpedia theory policy for more details.

  • The DHARMA Initiative was originally commissioned by the UN, and thus members of the U.S. military were present on the Island during the first incarnation of the Initiative in order to help get it off the ground (national governments often send military to assist with UN endeavors).
  • Could possibly belong to Pickett, who used the word "klicks" to reference distance. "Klick" is military slang for kilometers, possibly suggesting Pickett was in the Army.
  • Over 20 years ago was the Iran-Iraq War where Sayid was stationed. Could this be Kelvin's knife or belong to somebody else?
    • The war that Sayid was involved in was the first Gulf War (circa 1990), where Kelvin Inman was a commanding officer (who was later on the Island to man the Hatch with Radzinsky).
      • Ana Lucia says the knife is "probably 20 years old" in "The Other 48 Days", which presumably takes place in 2004. Kelvin Inman did not become a spook overnight. He could have been carrying the knife since he first joined the Army - say, in 1984 or earlier.
    • In "One of Them", the camera lingers on a knife that Sayid pulls out of the torture box Kelvin gave him. This happens again later in the episode, when Kelvin uses his knife to cut Sayid loose in Iraq. These look like the same knife, and also like the Army knife in "The Other 48 Days".
    • Could be an artifact belonging to Jones' Group or their fellow soldiers.
