Description

A rare, original, Everitt knuckle style, fighting knife.  It is believed these knives were used by US soldiers, during WW II, as a trench knife in the Pacific theater.  It has a green painted aluminum alloy handle with “EVERITT”, cast into the handle below the grip, on both sides.  The knife has a double edge straight sided stabbing blade, with a single narrow blood groove in the center, and appears to have a parkerized finish.  This example retains its original brown leather scabbard with six metal staples at the throat, 10 rivets, the extra long loop for securing the knife’s larger handle and a steel reinforcing plate on the back.
