Original WW2 era American fighting “HALF-SWORD” fighting knife made from whatever materials were available at hand. The overall quality is actually pretty high; the overall fit and finish are great. The extra large scimitar-stile blade has been expertly fitted through the guard; the handle is nice and tight, even after 70-plus years – not a small feat to accomplish in the rudimentary field conditions.
This interesting “half-sword” fighter is about 17-1/2″ / 44.5 cm overall; huge blade is about 12″ / 30.5 cm long; the blade is pretty sharp still; the tip is intact. A few edge nicks near the top are noted for accuracy. Stacked leather washers and solid black Bakelite pommel handle; all parts are tight with no play. The scabbard did not survive.
This one of a kind large WW2 era American theater fighting knife 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.
