    Default USMC marked USN MK2 with trench knuckle

    Hello gentlemen,
    I recently acquired these items from ebay and thought you guys would like it. The seller said he got it from an estate auction and it all came as a lot.
    blade is really rough and pitted but it has a nice patina to it.
    It had only been listed for maybe less than an hour before I nabbed it!

    Great knife, but I'm not all that sure that the sheath is original to it.

    Lucky that's a very nice lot but what William said the sheath does not look like it always belonged there.

    I kind of figured that, the patination on the blade tells the story-It's good to have though, at least i don't have to shop for a sheath! =)

    yeah that's true good to have a sheath.

    Not the correct sheath but it could have been used during this time, the blade itself is not the correct type used for this handle, the blade was probably added during the war with the handle to be used as a fighting knife

    It is the correct scabbard for a USN Mk. 2, it appears that the Mk.2 knife was modified by changing the grip after issue and it's correct scabbard kept.
