Very good, carried and used, original, WWII blade marked "US M3 CASE" trench knife. Knife just over 11 1/2" long w/the blade just over 6 5/8". Very light sharpening, good, clean edge, some light scratches and most of the finish worn away.Guard is tight and clean. Leather grip shows moderate wear, is still very good.
The pommel is tight and has about 27 distinct notches put into the top edge. Can only speculate the meaning... Comes in original "US M8 B. Co" marked scabbard, that is excellent w/initials CRT lightly scratched in the front.
