Originally designed in 1943, the M3 trench knife was a fighting knife issued to soldiers otherwise unequipped with a bayonet. Though its service life was short, its lethality was quite grand. Featuring a razor-sharp, bayonet-style point alongside sharpened edges, the M3 was suitable for both stabbing and slashing motions. It is sure to find a home with both reenactors and collectors alike.
The M3 trench knife is equipped with a narrow, carbon steel blade with a parkerized finish that measures approximately 6.5 inches long and features a razor-sharp, bayonet-style point. Also noteworthy is the 3.5-inch secondary edge that runs alongside the full-length edge. The ring grip wooden handle provides a no-slip grip and unmatched comfort as well as an authentic appearance. You will also notice a steel crossguard with an angular bend on one side. This bend acts as a thumb rest and allows the wielder to take several different fighting grips. The knife has an excellent weight distribution which provides great balance.
