5/18/18 - This is an original US M3 fighting knife by Imperial with an original US M6 leather scabbard. The blade is made by Imperial and excellent condition. The parkerized finish is excellent and the blade hasn't been altered. The underside of the hand guard is maker stamped and marked US M3. The pommel is US flaming bomb ordnance stamped. The leather handle has signs of use but in great shape overall. The leather scabbard is beautiful and excellent. Soft, pliable leather with very minimal exterior scuffing. Nice Barwood maker stamp. Guaranteed original and authentic.
