1 U.S. World War 2 4" Richtig fighting knife.  This rare, small Richtig boot 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 just 8 3/16" overall.  The blade itself measures 4".  This Richtig fighter is stamped 'F.J.R.  CLARKSON  NEB.'.  The guard and pommel are brass.  The pommel has an extended lanyard ring.

The scabbard is ID'd on the back '1942 BULLOCK'.  

This WW2 Richtig fighting knife shows both honest signs of carry in World War 2, and exceptional condition.  This Richtig knife can take an edge like no other.  The blade has the expected staining in a carbon steel (non-Stainless) blade, though I didn't clean it up at all--I chose to keep it in the condition I found it.  The sheath is in quite perfect condition.
