WWII USMC Fighting Knife – Identified to a “J.E.K” on the blade (Serial No. also etched into the blade).
Fighting Knife – Initialed Blade- “J.E.K. U S M C” The double edged knife measures approx. 11″ in total length, the blade is approx. 6.63″ in length and 1.125″ in width at the widest part. There are a few numbers carved in between the initials and USMC, “134” are the only numerals readable. The grip is made of sections of red plastic and leather, with iron pommel cap, and aircraft aluminum guard plate.
Some wear along both blade edges and has a red and black handle with light wear. The crudely made leather scabbard has wear throughout and has a small rip where the blade is inserted into the scabbard. Stitching is sound throughout. Certainly looks like a theater made knife and scabbard
Nicely made, and serviceable.
