C038874 U.S. M3 FIGHTING KNIFE & SCABBARD. M3 fighting knife and scabbard with an integral frog. The knife has a metal pommel, to whose flat, upper surface, alongside the end of its tang, is stamped the image of a flaming bomb. Horizontally ribbed, brown leather grip is age darkened. Its metal double cross guard angles forward along its upper projection. The 17cm blade, with a swedge and short fuller, shows lots of good period use and wear. The 18.5cm scabbard has a metal throat with downwardly-angled projections to either side, and is stamped "U.S. M8" and "B M Co". A vertical projection extends from the back of the throat, to which the 12cm tall olive drab canvas frog is doubly riveted. The frog has a horizontal retaining strap riveted to the upper portion of its formed belt loop, with metal tips to either end of the strap and a brass snap button. The olive drab-colored bakelite scabbard itself tapers at its tip, where there is a hole for a tie string. Some edge wear to the scabbard. Nice worn and used example.
