$85.00 SOLD

Issued to USMC hospital corpsmen, this simple knife was intended to aid in clearing brush, cutting branches for stretchers, etc. It could also be a handy last-ditch defensive weapon. These are very simply made, with wood grips riveted to the tang of the wide, flaring blade that is formed, nevertheless, with something of a point and back edge. This one is crisply stamped  “U.S.M.C/ CHATILLON, N.Y.” on one side of the blade. The wood grips show old dents, bruises and some wear. The blade is excellent, with lots of original blue.  [SR]
