Sold Out
During WWII our troops carried a variety of fighting knives…many of them private purchase. Floyd Nichols, a metal sculptor from Nebraska made some of the best private purchase knives of the era. Our razor sharp version is made like the originals from hand-forged high carbon steel that’s tempered for optimal strength, durability and edge holding qualities. The cast brass grip fits sweetly in the hand and its unique shape is a thing of beauty. The pommel cap was usually graced with an Indian-head nickel soldered in place (ours is a one-sided reproduction proof). The top-grained brown leather sheath stitched with waxed linen thread and riveted at the stress points. Fits 2" belts. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
