Seller: Top-Rated Plus Seller abramsantiques (21,363) 100%, Location: Claremont, California, Ships to: US, Item: 303244416473 Such was the need for fighting knives during WW2, especially after the short M-1 bayonet was introduced in 1943, that many of the older M-1942 bayonets were factory cut down and crafted into handy fighting knives for issue to our boys overseas. They were housed in a distinctive brown leather scabbard with two rivets placed very close together at the end tip. This US Army USMC Marine WW2 BAYONET PARTS FIGHTING KNIFE is in very good condition, with some light bending and chipping to the blade tip, some light sharpening to the blade edge, some patina to the blade, guard, and pommel, and with some scattered age wear evident (ALL pictured). Otherwise, the knife is in fine shape, with no other damage. Most interestingly, it features a 7 1/4" spearpoint blade with a long central fuller, sports the classic ridged black plastic handle scales, and is correctly unmarked as to its maker or date. It boasts a thick steel guard and pommel, and is complete with the original US WW2 Brown Leather Scabbard in very good condition, with some light swelling and nicking to the end tip, some light fading to the front body, a spot of stick tag residue at the front throat, the name "J.E. MULLIN" hand marked in black along the upper back, and with some light overall scratching, spot darkening, and age wear evident (ALL pictured). Otherwise, the scabbard is in fine shape, with no other damage. Most interestingly, it bears a fully functional darkened brass "glove" snap closure leather handle retention strap, carries the traditional darkened metal rivets and whitish cotton stitching down the sides (highlighted by the distinctive two rivets close together at the end tip), and exhibits a fully intact darkened brass wire hanger at the upper back. The set is a fine example of a rare, original US Army USMC Marine WW2 BAYONET PARTS FIGHTING KNIFE. With apologies to our valued international clients, we must restrict bidding to US bidders only.
