The scabbard is stamped on its belt loop 'STELZIG SADDLERY CO. HOUSTON, TEXAS'. The sheath is also ID'd on the back--the vet's serial #: 'P5312' is stenciled in black.
This very difficult to find WW2 Stelzig knuckle knife is in excellent condition. The sheath is in quite perfect condition. A portion of this rare knife's guard was broken off in battle.
