Original WW2 Ka-Bar MK2 Fighting Knife, guard-marked type, orig gray U.S.N. MK2 NORD composition scabbard. Unissued and unused – VERY rare as such.
Original WW2 era famous US Navy Mark 2 “Ka-Bar” fighting knife (the link is a courtesy of Wikipedia) manufactured by KA-BAR (Union Cutlery out of Olean, NY) in extremely hard to find unissued and unused condition. The overall condition is “near-mint” – the scabbard is mint; the blade still has most of its original dark-gray parkerized finish; no nicks on the original edge, the tip is intact; the pommel is excellent with no contact marks. This specimen is in excellent overall condition and SUPER rare as such nowadays – today most of the surviving WW2 era MK2 fighting knives in minty condition are in private collections & rarely come up for sale.
This is the guard-marked type; no stamps on ricasso. The guard is sharply stamped KA-BAR on one side, USN / MK2 on the other. Leather washers handle with heavy round pommel and slightly curved guard; all parts are tight with no play. The knife is about 12-1/4″ / 31 cm overall; parkerized blade is about 7″ /17.8 cm. The edge, including the “false” upper edge, are RAZOR-sharp; the tip is intact.
Original “navy-gray” composition scabbard made by NORD; the numbers on the back indicate March 1945 delivery date to the Navy. The scabbard is also unused; it is in 100% serviceable condition. Most of Mark 2 knives were used in the field as intended; this type is VERY rare in near-mint, unused condition – a rare find and a great addition to any collection. This attractive WW2 Ka-Bar MK2 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.
