BO1943: M3 Trench Knife

Boker Plus

Designed in 1943, the M3 Trench Knife was intended to be used by any U.S. soldier during World War II who was not equipped with a bayonet - soldiers with pistols, submachine guns, light and heavy machine guns, etc. The first troops to receive the M3's were the Airborne, Mountain Ranger and Glider infantry units. Among the nine manufacturers who produced the M3 during wartime was H. Boker & Co., with a total of 31,300 pieces, which was the smallest quantity. For the 65th anniversary, Boker Plus is reintroducing this classic piece of combat cutlery, along with a reproduction metal U.S. M8A1 scabbard. The black coated blade is made of high carbon SK-5 steel and features the original H. Boker & Co. blade tang. The handle is made of stacked leather pieces. To ensure the quality of the M3, each knife features a laser engraved serial number.

Cons: None
Razor Sharp Edge Capable
I am a disabled Vietnam Veteran, I have been on a Walker since my, 5-artery Heart Bypass 2 & 1/2 years ago. As a U.S. Army Infantry Veteran with a year of experience in the mountain jungles of Vietnam, with 2-Purple Hearts, and 4-Battles Stars, including the Tet Offensive of 1968. I can tell You that, there are two items that I keep on My, walker for instant defense. A Colt Government Model .45 Automatic, and an M3 Trench Knife. I purchased my, Boker M3 Trench knife about 2017, believing that it is of Harder steel than the U.S. version, (Ever try to break a Jap knife ? I have, even though it is made of the same steel, the Asians make it harder), Best of all, I was able to get a Razor Sharp Edge on "Both edges". I do not know about everyone else, but I Have, been in hand to hand combat, and I Love this Boker M3, that I am ordering a spare one, now, to keep in reserve, in my, Gun Safe.

Made in China & aluminum parts = the kiss of death
It's a poor reproduction, with aluminum parts, made in China. not a true reissue. Even for the 'on sale' price, you can find better knives made in Germany or the US.As an avid collector and part time dealer I can tell you that for the serious collector / buyer, a reissue must be a true reissue, like the Boker WWI German Army trench knife, now that's the real deal, made in Germany.Take a pass on this one.JV

Cons:
Aluminum guard and pommel
Not a bad knife, but I didn't like the aluminum guard and pommel. They should have used steel!
