If my memory is correct, I believe Martini ended up losing an arm on Iwo Jima.

An unusual item for WW2.  Outlawed by treaty agreements after WW1, records show that they should have been flushed from Government stores during the 20's.  I know this isn't the only image of these triangle blade trench knives from WW2, and it's not impossible that at least somewhere or another there still might have been a few that didn't get surplused.

That’s why I have one in my collection because it’s pretty savage
