Nichols U.S. GI WWII Fighting Knife. During WWII our troops carried a variety of fighting knives...many of them private purchases. Floyd Nichols, a metal sculptor from Nebraska made some of the best private purchase knives of the era. Made like the originals from hand-forged high carbon steel that's tempered for optimal strength, durability and edge holding qualities. The cast brass grip fits sweetly in the hand and its unique shape is a thing of beauty. The pommel cap was usually graced with an "Indian-head" nickel soldered in place (ours is a one-sided reproduction proof). The razor sharp blade is 7 1/4" long with an overall length of 12 1/4" and 14 ounce weight. Top-grained brown leather sheath stitched with waxed linen thread and riveted at the stress points included. Fits 2" belts. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. See my other knives listed.
