Our WWII Skull Head Fighting Knife was used During WWII in the Pacific, where the leather grips used on many fighting knives rotted in the hot and humid climate. A sailor in the US Navy made new grips of salvaged aluminum from shot-down Japanese aircraft, including the infamous Zero.
The new grips were a work of art and very functional, from the skull head cruncher to the cobra finger guard. Our high quality reproduction Skull Head Fighting Knife is made with a standard U.S. issue style blade from hand-forged high carbon steel that’s properly tempered for optimal strength, durability and edge holding qualities. Aluminum grip like the originals. Comes with a standard issue style top-grained leather sheath that fits belts up to 3" wide.
