Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. These M2 Paratrooper pockets knives with the early war issue "jigged bone" handles (scales or grip) are among the hardest to find on the market today. This wonderful example offered in very good fully functional condition is marked on the base of the blade ricasso as follows:

SCHRADE
CUT. CO.
WALDEN N.Y.

and:

U.S. PATS.
DEC. 21, 09.
SEPT. 13, 10.
JUNE 6, 16.

These blade markings definitely identify it as the early No.1 version, and it bears the correct jigged bone handle.

Worn in the breast pocket of the Paratrooper M2 Jump Jacket these knives were intended for paratroopers to cut there parachute cords and anything else if they got entangled during a jump. Exceedingly rare and hard to find. For further research checkout this forum post about these knives and how to tell WW2 knives from post war (this example is 100% WWII) visit the forum at this link.
