This is a nice World War II U.S. Everitt Knuckle Knife with original scabbard that is in very good condition. No reference indicates that anyone knows who “Everitt” was, or who the company that produced the knives was. However, most agree that the fighting knives were produced for use by U.S. troops in the Pacific Theater. The knife had cast metal hilt that is 5” long and has four finger-hole “knuckles” with small, flat studs on the striking surface. The blade is double-edged with spear-point design and about 6¾ inches long. It features a central fuller and is with age staining along the entire length of both sides. The edges were lightly sharpened long ago and have now toned down with age along with the rest of the blade. The overall length of the knife is 11¾”, and weighs approximately 10 ounces. The aluminum handle is painted black, with approximately 95% remaining on one side and 50% on the other. The scabbard is constructed of brown, russet leather that remains strong and pliable. The handle securing strap is with functioning brass closure snap. All stitching, rivets and staples are intact. The original owner’s initials, “JHS” are cut into the leather on the lower front portion of the scabbard. This is a rather scarce World War II fighting knife that is seldom encountered on the market and one that remains in very good, presentable condition.
