WW2 Robeson Shuredge MK2 fighting knife, original navy-gray 1943 USN NORD composition scabbard included. Great overall condition, considering the age.

Original WW2 era famous US Navy Mark 2 “Ka-Bar” fighting knife (the link is a courtesy of Wikipedia) manufactured by Robeson Cutlery with original “navy-gray” NORD composition scabbard. Scarce lightly used condition -hard to find this nice 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; blued blade is about 7″ / 17.8 cm.  No pitting, spine dings, or edge nicks the blade; thick iron pommel is near-perfect – scarce this nice. The blade has 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; the guard has a tiny bit of a play. Ricasso is sharply stamped U.S.N. MARK 2 on one side, Robeson Shuredge on the other. Original Navy-gray NORD composition scabbard by Beckwith Manufacturing Co. division of Victory Plastics (VP). Production numbers on the back indicate the very first November 1943 delivery to US Navy. Original “navy-gray” finish; no cracks, dents or chips; the webbing is great with no damage. This original WW2 Robeson Shuredge MK2 fighting knife is in 100% serviceable condition still; with proper care it will last another 75 years 😉

During the war most of MK2s were used in the field as intended and most were worked to death; these mid-war MK2s are hard to find in better grades. This attractive WW2 Robeson Shuredge 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; spent brass is not included with the knife 😉
