8/18/21 - This is an original, early variation M3 fighting knife from WW2. The blade is maker stamped by Utica and dated 1943. No signs of sharpening and most of the original finish is in tact on the blade, though there's some finish loss near the tip. The leather handle is excellent and tight. Comes with a Milsco M6 scabbard that's also 1943 dated. The leather is soft and pliable but completely in tact with no major issues.
