2/28/18 - This is an original USM3 Fighting Knife made by Utica with a WW2 production leather M6 scabbard. The scabbard has some signs of use and aging, which has led to some wrinkling and surface cracking on the leather, as well as rust forming on the stables and metal parts of the scabbard. The blued blade is overall in great shape with a nice edge and no signs of sharpening. However, there is some surface scratching and wear where the blade reaches the hand guard. There is light scratches over the UTICA maker stamp on the blade. The handle is in great condition. Guaranteed original.
