Item Description

Original Item: One Only.  This is an very nice example of the rare WWII Italian Fascist Fighting Knife, sometimes called a "Pugio". This example has a 8 1/8 inch steel blade blade with wood grip and steel cross guard, and comes complete with correct steel scabbard and belt clip. The knife is 13 inches in overall length.

Condition of the knife is very good, with the expected wear from service and sharpening. There is some light oxidation on the ricasso and cross guard, as well as a bit on the blade, but nothing major. The edge of the blade has been re-shaped a bit by sharpening, so it is not as wide as originally issued.  The wooden grip is in good condition, with some small dents and some small cracks near the cross guard. No major chunks or chips are missing.

Steel painted scabbard is in good condition, with wear and some small dents. It does not appear to have been repainted, and has more than 95% of the original finish. The original belt clip with securing sleeve is still intact works well, something not often seen. Knife fits well in the scabbard.

This is an excellent opportunity to pick up a great example of a rare WW2 Italian fighting knife. These do not appear very often at all.
