A Good WW2 Period San Antonio Ironworks Home Front Made U.S. Fighting Knife - $
A San Antonio Ironworks model fighter made from a 1913 Patton saber blade tip and simple wood handle as pictured on pages 220 & 221 of Silvey's book, "Knives of the United States, World War II." The leather sheath fits the knife well but does not match examples pictured in his book and is probably a period replacement. This example displays the original unaltered blade form and the entire knife and sheath are in very good original period condition. The blade lightly cleaned with minor rust pitting and the sheath has a few missing stitches. 30.4cm. overall in sheath.
