Here is the second of three knives I picked up today (the others being a German Para knife and a US Model 1904 Hospital Corp Bolo).
This is a hefty item and would cause real damage when used!
Overall condition is good with some pitting on an otherwise good blade with grime that needs to be removed. Complete with a scabbard. However it appears that the scabbard has been heavily oiled long ago which is causing it to deterioate in certain placed. The oil has soaked through and gets on the blade.
Model 1909 dated 1917
Maker: Fayette R Plumb, Philadelphia
Serial number 55578
Scabbard: Rock Island Arsenal
Any and all comments welcome
