3/19/18 - This is an original WW2 US M3 fighting knife with an original M6 leather scabbard. The blade is blued and in great condition with some light scratch marks mostly from the scabbard and light use. There are no signs of sharpening. The blade is maker stamped and dated 1943. The leather handle has some minor "play" where the leather wiggles a little bit, but this is normal from use (remember these were made for fighting during WW2). The leather scabbard is in excellent condition and made by Viner Bros. The scabbard is all original with no notable flaws - only normal use and aging wear. Guaranteed original and authentic.
