Article about: by AndyB To correct some statement of Reibert, i dont believe Czechoslovak legion in Italy used this type of scabbard, on all evidence there are used the ersatz scabbards pictured by Rich.A.

    Hi, Andy !

    I´m sure, you´re right !

    I know the "usual-worn" scabbard very well.

    I catched my fighting knife at a small flea-market many yrs. ago, they´re collecting money for training guide dog´s (for the blind).

    I guess, my scabbard was made of an scabbard of a Carcano ?

    @ Rich. A.
    Very fine knive´s and a smooth display !
    Thx. for showing !

    Hi, mates !

    Bought some blades at a flea-market yesterday, among them, this italian Fighting knife M1916 in very bad condition.
    Nevertheless, very intersting the personalization , IMO a family coat of arms, carved in one of the grip plates and in the topmount of the sheath.

    Very nice compliments your blades,
    to answer the sliders: They were used scabbards of Carcano 91 and even bayonets scabbards Vetterli. Usually they were modified without the parts above and below in brass, were shortened as well as the blade was cut.
    Below was used a metal clamp to close and had behind the band to the belt ...
    However, there are several different models but what I said above was standard.
    To see if your are derived from Vetterli compare them with the scabbard long you have in the first picture, the one being a scabbard Vetteli standard.
