10/9/17 - This is an original 1943 production USM3 Fighting Knife made by Boker. Boker produced the least amount of M3 fighting knives during WW2, making these blades the most scarce and desirable variation of M3 fighting knives. The blade is maker stamped and blued, but has some wear throughout. The wear is mostly oil staining which results in some dark spots and staining throughout. The edge appears to have been honed or lightly sharpened and used. Comes with an original leather M6 scabbard made by "SBL Co" which is one of the most scarce scabbard makers! The scabbard, similar to the blade, has normal wear throughout. No major issues though and completely in tact. Guaranteed original and authentic!
