Kabar (Or KA-BAR) fighting knife with terrific overall look. Condition throughout shows gentle period wear consistent with theater used examples but no damage or mistreatment. The grip was a small crack on the section just before the pommel. This is unfortunately a common occurrence with these knives but there is no wiggle and not overly distracting. Blade is marked KA-BAR on one side and USN on the other. The scabbard is a nice, soft brown leather which is healthy a pliant. Just under the throat snap the scabbard is marked BOYT 43 for 1943. The blade section of the scabbard is also marked U.S.N. and has the correct WWII style staples. Best of all, it still has the leg or thigh ties at the bottom still nicely braided as veterans enjoyed doing at the time. Very nice fighting knife with a solid combat theater look.
