    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    I am undecided on this being a civilian hunting knife.. I think this may be a very, very, worn US WW2 combat knife. It may be a "Marbles" manufactured "Ideal" knife.

    There are some similarities in the knife that Bavarian posted and the WW2 era knife. The red leather spacers at the top and bottom of the handle, the small groove on the bottom of the knife where the knuckle guard and handle meet and the pommel.

    The biggest thing missing is the blood groove on the knife that Bavarian posted so it could have been ground away after years of use and obviously the manufacturers markings on the blade are long gone (and maybe were never there in the first place)

    May be a civilian knock off of a military fighting knife... There were hundreds of companies that manufactured blades and many Soldiers and Airmen carried civilian made knives based on the same designs as those for the military contracts...

    Again I am not 100% sure but I have several US Combat knives and Bavarian's may be one..

    The photos are not mine, I obtained them from an online auction site.

    Just my thoughts on this blade...
