Antique WWII W SCAGEL Fighting Knife -Old VL&A Chicago/Hand Made -William WW2Details
1 rare original Scagel knife available. This original William Scagel knife would make an important addition to any premium collection.
I'd say this knife is more of a camp knife rather than a kitchen knife.
This knife is unmarked. This knife came in a collection of 14 original William Scagel knives. The photos above show this knife next to a kris-marked Scagel steak knife. Photos of the smaller knife have been provided just for reference--the steak knife has sold.
Note that both knives have the same aluminum handle rivets and the same wood handle material.
This rare Scagel knife measures 10 5/8" overall. The blade measures 6 5/8".

This rare original William Scagel knife is in beautiful condition.
