Circa 1948 Wide Blade Model 2 Trench Knife


Super rare with stag, finger grips, and a huge blade!!!!

Product Details

This is a magnificent Model 2 from the 1940's.

The blade is a bit shy of 8 1/2" long and a full 1 3/8" wide! Reminecent of a WWII wide blade fighter, the blade is truly impressive. It is the only one from this period I have seen.

A recently introduced nickel silver hilt adorns this knife butting up to a seven spacer stack.

Beautiful deep finger grip stag handle of the period. Highly unusual on a Model 2. I think I have seen maybe one other, possibly two.

Has an optional Duralumin butt cap drilled for thong with original leather.

Washer and brass nut.

Heiser sheath is a mid -1940's Model 1 with stone pouch removed. It was not uncommon to find a Model 2 in a Model 1 sheath during WWII and later.

The knife shows light use and carry, I assume in Korea? Hard to say, but blade is 100% full with no issues at all.

Simply an exquisite and rare 1940's model 2 "Trench Knife" that it is unlikely you will see another with the oversized blade and finger grips.
