    ### NEW LISTING #### 5/2/16

    MOST UNUSUAL WW2 AMERICAN USM3 JUNGLE VETERAN TRENCH KNIFE BY UTICA REFURBISHED FOR FURTHER SERVICE

    Especially considering its age and usage overall very nice condition.

    This is an original USM8 with the guard stamped.
    The blade and guard has been plated, now we found other WW2 knives like this and the purpose was to protect the blade from the wetness and humidity of the Jungle, otherwise the steel would have rusted very quickly requiring constant cleaning,In fact a small area by the blade and guard plating has started to wear and the metal rust

    Another thing that indicates a jungle used knife is that the original stacked leather washers are missing. We have in our own collection a WW2 Kabar where the Jungle wetness and humidity have badly effected the washers.

    Manufacturer stamping guard "US M-3 UTICA".

    The stacked leather washers have been replaced with greased cord, and a differet pommel fixed to it, and the original USM8 scabbard with a hand made sheath lined with part of another leather knife sheath.

    The blade measures about 16.5 cm knife about 28.5 cm overall length.

    You must be at least 18 years of age to buy this item.

    Would say that this has been a WW2 Jungle Used M 3 that has been refurbished at some period. Would also say that the sheath has been made for another knife and reworked to fit this knife.Having said that the knife is a very nice tight fit in the sheath

    There is also some slight play on the guard
    although the brown markings on the blade are some old grease that we have left on it as it is a mark of history but would clean off easily and overall both both blade and knife are in nice condition.

    Delivery: UK £ 7.99 by Signed Delivery.
    Will courier Worldwide... if overseas please email for a quote.

    As a collector I like to treat people as I would like to be treated,if you are not entirely satisfied with a purchase you can return the item for a refund, but we do not refund cost of delivery. Thanks.
