Description
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.

Pros: None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
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!

Pros: Handle Material, Finish, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Blade Material, Materials
made in China
This is the very knife I've been looking for for two years. The price is very competitive, probably because where it is made. My wife doesn't always check to see where something is made, so I spend a lot of time sending things back. if the specs are correct, it would be a wonderful knife for a Chinese trooper, but not me. HONESTLY - MADE IN CHINA??? A proud VietNam Vet.
