Original WW2 era American fighting Bowie made from whatever materials were available at hand. The overall quality is actually pretty high; the fit and balance are great; this is one hell of a practical sidearm. The double-guard was cut from a piece of brass and brazed to the steel blade; solid cast aluminum handle has been expertly fitted to the dagger – not a small feat in the rudimentary field conditions.
This interesting fighting knife is about 13-5/8″ / 34.6 cm overall; an up-swept Bowie-tip style blade is about 8-5/8″ / 22 cm; the blade is very sharp still; the tip is intact. Solid cast aluminum handle with integral guard was directly cast on the blade; all parts are tight with no play. Original hand-made leather scabbard is in great shape, considering the age. “Canteen” style lift-up snaps on the keeper and the rear belt hanger; the snaps are nice and tight. Most of the scabbard’s original stitching is intact; one small cut near the tip from inserting the blade too fast and some minor stitching loss are noted for accuracy.
This interesting and certainly one-of-a kind American WW2 theater fighting knifer has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way; it is in 100% original “as is” condition; these are the actual photos. I have more WW2 American fighting knives, as well as several scarce WW1 and WW2 fighting daggers, bayonets and trench knives available for sale – please take a look in our Militaria section.
