Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice example of an early Korean War issue M2 Paratrooper pocket knife, with correct black plastic "jigged bone" handles. These are almost identical to the WWII issue, with the main differences being markings and the more durable plastic grips. These are difficult to find, however they are a much better value than WWII produced examples.

This very nice used example is in fully functional condition and comes complete. Some versions of these had a bale (ring) on the end for a lanyard, however this example is the pocket knife version, so it has no loop. Condition is good, with a nice sharp blade. It does show some use and extensive sharpening (blade profile changed), as these were often used in the field. It is marked on the base of the blade with:

SCHRADE
WALDEN
NY

Worn in the breast pocket of the Paratrooper M2 Jump Jacket, these knives were intended for paratroopers to cut their parachute cords and anything else if they got entangled during a jump. Genuine examples, such as this, are exceedingly rare and hard to find.

Dimensions:
Blade Length: 3”
