American WW2 Western L77 Commando fighting knife, original early “no rivets” leather scabbard. Rare type in great overall condition, considering the age.

Original WW2 era model L77 Commando Stiletto fighting knife manufactured during the war by Western Cutlery Co. in Boulder, Colorado, USA. Very attractive slim-blade fighting stiletto type; comes with original early “no rivets” leather scabbard. This fighting stiletto is about 11-1/8” / 28.3 cm overall; the blade is about 6-3/4″ / 17.3 cm. Fullered blade has been re-sharpened and it is razor-sharp still; the tip is intact. Stacked leather and colored fiber washers handle; steel guard and aluminum pommel. The handle is solid – all parts are tight with no play.  This exact type is illustrated on page 236 of KNIVES OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY WORLD WAR II book by Michael W Silvey – a well-established expert and the author of a number of books on the subject of the US military edged weapons (see book’s page scan attached).

Original leather scabbard is included. This is the early all-leather “no rivets” type in well-used condition with the obvious signs of field use; the leather is a bit dry; the keeper is pretty frail and has been field-repaired with a large copper and aluminum river. Most of the original stitching is intact but it looks pretty tired to me.  Overall, this American WW2 Western L77 Commando fighting knife with original leather scabbard is in very much serviceable condition still. With proper care it will last you another 75 years 😉

This attractive fighting dagger has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, 100% original “as is” condition. These are the actual photos; spent brass is not included with the lot.
