Very interesting and certainly one of a kind WW2 era “half-saber” fighting knife with a huge curved blade and extra-heavy brass pommel handle. Looks like this knife was made on a ship from whatever materials were available by some bored but very resourceful sailor. The overall quality is actually pretty high, considering this knife was probably made on a ship. The edge is very nice with a clean and even grind, the blade is nicely brazed to the brass guard – looks like this knife was made by a talented knifemaker
The knife is completely unmarked; huge curved “scimitar type” blade is razor-sharp still; the tip is intact. The knife is a lot heavier than a typical knife of this size; all handle parts are tight with zero play. About 14-1/8” / 36 cm overall; the blade is about 9” / 22 cm. The scabbard did not survive. An interesting WW2 era “theater knife” with a lot of character; it will be a great addition to any collection!
This WW2 theater-made 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.
