A well-made US Navy Mark 2 “KA-BAR” fighting knife with original “navy-gray” NORD composition scabbard; manufactured by Robeson Cutlery Co. (stamped R.C.C. on the guard). Scarce unused condition and rare as such for the type as most of MK2s were used as intended during the war. MK2 is the classic American fighting knife; this type was used in combat in all theaters of WW2 and in virtually every war thereafter.
This Mark 2 is about 12″ / 30.5 cm overall; the blade is about 7″ / 17.7 cm. No pitting, spine dings, or edge nicks the blade; the pommel is near-perfect – scarce this nice. The blade has not been re-sharpened; it is razor-sharp still; the tip is intact. Stacked leather washes and hammer-like round pommel handle is tight; all parts are tight with no play. Original Navy-gray NORD composition scabbard by Beckwith Manufacturing; production numbers on the back indicate June 1944 delivery to US Navy. Original “navy-gray” finish; no cracks, dents or chips; the webbing is great with no damage. This original WW2 Robeson Cutlery MK2 fighting knife is in 100% serviceable condition still; with proper care it will last another 75 years 😉
