"The Model 1 was made famous by Allied combat troops in World War II and has since been widely used in all theaters of war." This particular knife was used in WWII, has been resharpened, used, lots of scratches and dings, what a story this knife has. .199" blade stock and 1.106" blade depth, satin finish blade with a used to be sharpened top edge. Brass guard, stacked leather handle with red/white/blue spacers, and duralumin butt cap with lanyard hole and brass nutt. The blade has "C.A. Revis" on the b-side. Includes brown leather sheath made by HH Heiser, not sure if this was brown button or not, there is a cut in the top of the sheath, the buttons are worn down and the stone pouch has been removed, which was common with Theatre carried knives. This knife is old and abused, but likely has an amazing story we can only speculate on.
This knife is a WWII Period knife and somewhat rare in a 6” blade.
With some exceptions, typically ordered by airman due to cockpit size limitations.
Brown and red buttons started post war so it would be correct.
Only issue on this one was that you can see that the stone pouch was removed well after it had been carried and used due to the condition of the leather underneath.
When the pouch was removed straight away, the leather would match perfectly with the rest of the wear on the sheath.
