WW2 fighting knife

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me some information on this WW2 fighting knife? It is unmarked but has a loop at the end of the handle (never seen that before). Someone mentioned it may be a combat engineer knife.

Looks like a badly reworked M3 trench knife.

Looks like a post war Kutmaster commercial knife. See ebay 143635115634.

Mikedon nailed it!  Made from left over parts by "UTICA" under their commercial name of "Kutmaster".  SKIP

Thanks for the info. Could it have been privately purchased for use in the Korean War?

Could have been purchased for use during Korean war.  Since Utica did not make M4s during Korea, it was most likely made from left over parts from WW2 production, then sold commercially. SKIP
