Description

Details

Many different types of blades were used by the American troops during the Second World War. This E.G. Waterman fighting knife was one of the most versatile and hence popular ones. As a fighting knife in the trenches, it's flat back and solid point of the blade made it very effective. It was also sturdy enough for use as a survival knife, making this knife popular also among civilians. There is a handy bottle opener built into the shoulder of the blade. As well as being a great collectable, this reproduction fighting knife is an excellent piece to pack when heading to the woods for hiking and camping. The blade is made from hand-forged high carbon steel and properly heat tempered. The shoulder of the blade is stamped "E G W KNIFE" just as in the original. The contoured and grooved close-grained dark finished wood handle sits well in the hand and the front and rear hand guards help give it a secure grip. Pommel features a lanyard ring and the top grained leather sheath is riveted and sewn with waxed linen thread. Fits belts up to 6.5 cm (2 1/2") wide.
