Was proud to add this to my collection today! Made during WW2 by Anderson Knife in Glendale, California. These were made from one of three sections of repurposed Patton sabers, mine being the tip of the blade.

Nice one. 

Frank Trazska wrote some excellent articles about Anderson knives. June 2006 in Knife World Magazine, December 2015 in Knife Magazine, and his Knife Knotes Part VII. I just took a group picture of mine today. I really like the WWII sword knives from both the known and unknown makers.

Are the knives on the ends unfinished?  (Noticing the blade tips)

Yes. A bunch of these were found in the old Anderson homestead basement around 2002 I think. Frank Trzaska tells the story about them, "The Continuing Saga of the Anderson's", about 3/4 the way through his "Knife Knotes 7".

Frank is the best! There is wealth of Military knife information on his website. Even more information if you read any of his magazine articles.
