US VIETNAM WAR Woodsmans Pal AIRMANS Fighting Machete Knife -1963 Manual & StoneDetails
1 rare U.S. World War II aluminum handle Kennedy Arms fighting knife available. I have been listing a number of different variations of Kennedy Arms fighting knives--and this is the double-edged, wood handle version. A wood-handle Kennedy Arms knife would make a rare addition to any premium collection.
The blade on this fine Kennedy Arms combat knife measures 7 3/4" long. This knife measures 12 1/4" overall. The handle is marked 'KENNEDY ARMS ST. PAUL'. The original sheath is stamped 'KENNEDY BROS. ARMS CO. ST. PAUL'. The top of the sheath is stamped '227S' like all Kennedy sheaths are. The guard has the Kennedy stamp as well. Interestingly this knife and sheath are hand-marked '1071'.
This WW II Kennedy Arms fighting knife is in excellent condition. The blade has absolutely no nicks, and has 90% of its original bluing. The scabbard is in excellent condition. There is one pin crack on one side of the wood handle. This handle scale is stable. The Kennedy scabbard is in excellent condition.
This rare Kennedy Arms combat knife deserves a home in a premium collection.
