The M3 Fighting Knife was an American military combat knife first issued in March 1943. The M3 was originally designated for issue to soldiers not otherwise equipped with a bayonet. However, it was particularly designed for use by elite or 'shock' forces in need of a close-combat knife such as airborne troops and Army Rangers, and these units received priority for the M3 at the start of production.  This piece is in outstanding condition, featuring the early M6 "Moose Co" 1943 dated scabbard.  Blade is marked "101st Airborne" on one side and "US M3 G.C.Co 1943" on the other side.  Outstanding preservation on this specimen.
