Scabbard, Leather, USM6 for USM3 knife
Reproduction of the USM6 leather scabbard for USMC trench knife. This russet leather sheath is made up of two pieces sewn together and reinforced by rivets and staples. A metal eyelt at the tip allows the scabbard to be secured to the leg.
Fastening of the two leather parts is ensured by a strong sewn seam. The sheath features strengthening pieces consisting of two rectangular metal plates, one on each side, fastened by four rivets which help keep together the leather. Metal staples reinforce the mouth of the scabbard; the hilt is to be held in place upon the uppermost part by a leather strap with snap fastener. A flat hook allows the scabbard to be attached to the pistol belt, although it can be fixed to the pants belt -- or to the leg for paratroopers -- thanks to the loop and leather lace. Markings U.S. M6 and 1943 are embossed in the leather along with the US grenade.
