    Nice blade : ), have you done any to protect the handle?
    Yes I put some mink oil on it, it actually seemed to drink it up pretty well, the loose guard actually tightened up a bit as a result.

    Hi, Mike !

    You´ve got a pretty fine "early" one, with the maker marked on the blade, ("later one´s" were maker-marked on the crossguard).

    The M3 trench-knife was manufactured between 25th of March 1943, till August 1944.

    From July 1943 on, the blade was parkerised, (before: blued), and the M3 was used with the M8 and the M8A1 scabbard, (before, with the M6-scabbard, made of leather).

    Apx. 10 maker´s in the US manufactured, (est.), more than 2.500.000 knive´s.

    Rgds.,
