12/28/17 - This is an original PAL model 37 US Navy fighting knife, complete with the original leather scabbard made by BOYT. The blade is in excellent condition with only minor patina and spotting, but no major issues and no signs of sharpening. The left side is maker stamped and marked "RH 37" - the reverse side is "U.S. NAVY" stamped. The blade handle has iconic early red spacers. The scabbard is similarly U.S.N. stamped and marked BOYT with a "4" meaning the scabbard was made in 1944. Guaranteed original and authentic.
