U.S.S. Quincy Knife

I have in my possession a knife and sheath. On the sheath is embossed the name A.R. MARTOCCHIO and
U.S.S. QUINCY. On the handle of the knife are the initials A.R.M. The knife has a 5" blade and was made in Camillus, N.Y. I have had the knife for 40+ years and have no idea how I obtained it. My guess is that A.R. Martocchio once served on the U.S.S. Quincy CA 71 or CA 39. I wonder if this this knife was issued as standard equipment by the US Navy to the sailors serving aboard the vessel? Perhaps the knife would have sentimental value to a family member of A.R. Martocchio, or perhaps to a U.S.S. Quincy museum. If anyone has any information they would like to share, I can be contacted at shemansky@cox.net in Connecticut.
