Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The Navy MK1 knife was used as both a utility knife and a fighting weapon. While some undoubtedly saw combat, particularly with Naval Aviators, these blades were mostly used for everyday functions aboard ship and ashore. The Mark I knives were Navy issue throughout WW2 and remained in inventory through the Vietnam war. They were purchased in huge quantities so replacements were not needed for many years.

From a collecting standpoint the beauty of the Mark I knives is in the wide variety of makers and blades that can be found. As for values, like most things USGI blades are evaluated based on scarcity and condition.

This knife is a nice solid example with all leather grip washers intact and present. The blade measures 9 5/8 overall. Blade nicely marked USN and H. Boker & Co. U.S.A on the reverse. Leather sheath present with all stitching intact also marked USN. Overall a nice example of an iconic knife used in WWII.
