Knife, Pocket, Parachutist, M2, Schrade Cut. Co.
Genuine WWII US switchblade knife to be located in the small vertical pocket under the collar of the jump coat. Its purpose was to cut the canopy risers when landing in a difficult spot.
This one is a short one with ring, with bone handle, made by Schrade Cut. Co. at Walden, New-York. The most issued knife within the airborne troops.
The knife works perfectly.
