UWK-0024. Rare WWII US Patton sword fighting knife

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #18372

These WWII US Patton sword fighting knifes are extremely difficult to find. At the start of WWII there was a shortage of fighting knives so the US government did everything they could to fill the void. They purchased massive stocks of hunting knives from civilian markets and they also convert old stock to make fighting knives. That was the case with this knife. It was originally a M1913 Patton sabre, made in 1914 by Springfield Armory. They took these swords and gave them to contractors to make into figting knives. Many times they would cut the sword into three pieces and make three seperate knives. This particular knife was made using the lower marked section of the blade and grip assembly. The guard was removed just leaving the original grip assembly. The serial number on the opposite side of the blade is 21080. The blade is in good to very good condition with mixture of bright polished blade and light grey areas. There is no pitting present on the blade at all. This is an excellent opportunity to get a rare and desireable knife that saw service through two wars.
