Knife, Trench, USM3, Camillus on Blade, with USM6 Scabbard


Genuine WWII USM3 trench knife, hallmarked Camillus on blade. The Ordnance Department flaming bomb is clearly visible on the pommel.

Delivered in its original USM6 leather scabbard. Approved on January 2, 1943, the USM6 sheath features strengthening pieces consisting of two rectangular metal plates -- one on either side -- fastened by four rivets, thus keeping the leather parts together. Fastening of the two leather parts is also ensured by rivets and a strong sewn seam, while an eyelet allows for a leg lace. Metal staples reinforce the top of the sheath on which the hilt rests. Markings U.S. M6 - Viner Bros - 1943 still visible.

A nice and homogeneous set in very nice, used condition -- hard to find nowadays. Don't miss it!
