CUSTOMIZED WW II WW2 WESTERN 8 FIGHTING KNIFE
A very nice speciman of a WW II vintage WESTERN fighting knife.
One of the most collectible of WW II knives.
This one is in very nice condition.
Nice patina on the blade.
However someone put a curly maple handle scales, replacing the original leather.
Double steel guard, steel butt cap which has 2 pieces of the blade through it and peened.
WESTERN PATD. stamped on one tang.
12.75″ OAL; 8.0″ blade
Some one custom made a neat brown leather sheath that fits the knife and is included. It has a logo stamped on the back, an Indian chief with head dress. I sure would like to know who’s stamp this is.
Very nice old vintage military collectible. There are not a lot of these knives floating around any more.
This knife would be a perfect addition to your collection
