Skull Head Fighting Knife

windlass steelcrafts manufactured discontinued items

This item has been retired by the manufacturer.



During WWII in the  Pacific, the leather grips used on many fighting knives rotted in the hot and humid climate. A sailor in the US Navy made new grips of salvaged aluminum from shot-down Japanese aircraft, including the infamous Zero. The new grips were a work of art and very functional, from the skull head cruncher to the cobra finger guard. Our high quality reproduction is made with a standard issue style blade from hand-forged high carbon steel that’s properly tempered for optimal strength, durability and edge holding qualities. Aluminum grip like the originals.

Comes with a standard issue style top-grained leather sheath that fits belts up to 3" wide.
