666: Dagger, Home Front-Made, WWII
This dagger was hand made during WWII in Philadelphia from a surplus WWI Patton sword. It has a wooden handle and comes in its original WWII dark brown leather sheath complete with tie down. The addition of a tie down was most often practiced by Marines. This is a unique piece. Even if the same craftsman made multiple weapons no two would ever be exactly the same.

Condition: Excellent, some discoloration on blade.
