Offered is this massive, theater made fighting knife. Pommel to tip, this thing measures just under 14 inches long. It consists of a a hand ground blade mounted in heavy brass grip frame, with a seperate cross guard. The grip plates are either some dense, fiberous wood or possibly bone, and are secured with copper rivets. The knife is carried in a hand made leather sheath that is both hand stitched and riveted together. The back of the belt loop is marke “1943” This looks like a factory applied date, so possible the leather was taken from some other piece of gear. In all, this is a really nice piece for the knife and edged weapons collector
