8/2/18 - This is an original US M3 Imperial fighting knife. The blade is maker stamped and doesn't have any finish remaining. The blade has light signs of sharpening near the edge, and there's light oxidation speckling throughout the blade. Overall in good condition though. The handle has a surface cut on one side but the leather is tight and in tact. The hand guard has minor play. There's a flaming bomb ordnance stamp on the pommel. The scabbard is marked US M8 and in great shape. Guaranteed all original and authentic.
