Knife, USM3, Case, with USM8 1st type
Genuine WWII type USM3 knife made by CASE, marked on guard, handle with slick leather, delivered in its early type USM8 Bakelite scabbard made by B.M. Co.
In very nice condition.
The Case Co. made more variations of the M3 trench knife than any other manufacturer. These variations included two different blade markings and two guard markings. Some had a bent guard and others were straight. The handle variations were smooth, rigged, and grooved types.
