Description

WW2 Field Conversion U.S Marine Corps USMC KA-BAR Fighting Knife & Leather Scabbard With Integral Belt Loop. Sn 14588:2 - 14588:2

This is an original WW2 USMC Ka-bar Fighting Knife & Leather Scabbard (see pages 90 & 91 of Cole’s book U.S. Military Knives Book 3). This example has been contemporarily field converted. The conversion has shortened the original handle with compressed leather washers to 4 washers instead of 5 and the original steel pommel replaced by a brass pommel. The converted fighting knife fits the hand well. It’s 7” steel drop point blade has staining and stable areas of pitting consistent with age and service use. The blade has markings ‘KA-BAR’ on one side & ‘USMC’ on the reverse. It measures 11 ¼” overall length. The knife is complete with its original leather scabbard with integral belt loop & single retaining strap and press stud fastener. The front of the scabbard is embossed USMC and with the USMC badge together with KABAR’. All leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14588:2
