WW2 Ulster Cutlery US mountain troops ski knife, US Army issue (Type II). Scarce original WW II era military folder with jigged bone handle scales in rare practically unused condition.
Very rare WW2 era US Army Mountain and Ski Troops multi-tool knife with jigged bone handle scales in practically unused condition – VERY rare this nice. Manufactured circa 1942-1943 by the long-gone ULSTER KNIFE COMPANY in Elenville, NY. Scarce type with stand-alone Phillips screwdriver (type II folder) for adjusting ski attachments – one of the hardest to find standard-issue American WW2 knives. This type was reportedly used by the troops of the US 10th Mountain Division and the mixed Canadian-American 1st Special Service Force unit. This exact type is illustrated on page 71 of the POCKET KNIVES OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY book by M. H. Cole – a well-established expert and the author of a number of books on the subject of the US military edged weapons (see the book’s scans attached).

The largest blade is about 2-3/8” / 6 cm long; the tip is intact; original factory edge is very sharp still. All other tools look unused as well; springs are nice and tight.
