1 U.S. World War 2 Richtig double-edged fighting knife w/Alfred Cornish sheath.  A WW2 Richtig fighting knife w/Cornish sheath is the holy grail combination every WW2 collector is seeking.  This desirable Richtig fighting knife would make an important addition to any U.S. military or world militaria collection. 

This knife was made by a legend in knife-making.  Frank Richtig had a secret steel tempering process that allowed him to slice through railroad spikes and automobile leaf springs.  Frank would demonstrate this at county fairs--after slicing a railroad spike or leaf spring, he would slice through a piece of paper with the same knife.  Frank earned himself a spot in a 'Ripley's Believe It or Not' magazine in the 1930's.  These knives can be used for decades, because of Frank's superior craftsmanship.

This knife measures 11 9/16" overall.  The blade itself measures 6 7/8".  The guard and pommel are brass.  The pommel is stamped 'F.J.R.  CLARKSON  NEB.'.  

The sheath is stamped 'ALFRED CORNISH   OMAHA, NEB.'  The sheath is ID'd on its front.  The soldier that carried it during the War scratched his name into the front of the sheath 'Ted Noveski   Omaha Nebr.  12 Monroe St.'.  The tab end of the keeper strap once went about 1 inch past the snap.  The snap functions perfectly though of course. 

A double-edged Richtig dagger is hard to find--this knife would make a great acquisition for any collector.

This rare double-edged Richtig fighter with its ID'd Cornish sheath is in exceptional condition.
