Vietnam War era fighting dagger, likely French-made M1916 LE VENGEUR style private purchase fighting knife type; original leather sheath included. Excellent overall condition, considering the age; very rare type.
Rare Vietnam War era “private purchase” fighting dagger likely made in France circa 1950th-1960th. The knife is styled very much like the famous French M1916 LE VENGEUR (the Avenger) fighting knives used by the French army in WW1 and WW2. The overall design, blade type the general handle construction is pretty much the same as with the Le Vengeur, except the materials are more modern.
This fighter is about 12-1/4″ / 31 cm overall; a well-honed double-edged blade is about 7-5/8″ / 19.3 cm long. The blade is razor-sharp still; the tip is intact. Solid polished hardwood handle with German silver double-guard and pommel. No chips, cracks, or dings on the wood or pommel/guard; all parts are tight with no play. The knife is completely unmarked. Original leather sheath is in excellent condition, considering the age. The leather is soft and supple still; all original stitching and rivets are intact; a couple of puncture wounds from inserting the blade too fast are noted for accuracy (the cuts are clean; could be repaired).
This rare Vietnam War era fighting dagger is in excellent overall condition, considering the age. Don’t miss your chance to add this scarce Vietnam War era fighting dagger to your collection!
