History of the WWII Theater Made Combat Knife:

Knives have been a key fighting weapon in every war. During the course of WWII in both theaters, a special breed of knives saw extensive development. Known as the "fighting knife", these servicemen self made weapons could be employed for the uses of a regular knife, its primary goal was for hand-to-hand combat and every day tactile use. During WWII these knives were produced in the European and South Pacific theaters and were made by the soldier for either themselves or sold off to other solders in the company and unit. Many of the combat GI theater made knifes were made out of a celulloid plastic, wood, leather, or other metal fragment found around them during that time.
