Originally designed in 1943, the M3 trench knife was a fighting knife issued to soldiers otherwise unequipped with a bayonet. 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. This M3 Trench Knife includes the M6 Scabbard and is made in America by Ontario Knife Company.
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.
