Richtig, Frank

  • 6" blade of carbon steel, 10 7/8" overall length
  • Brass hilt
  • Aluminum collar and butt cap
  • Leather handle with brass and red spacers
  • Integral extended steel pommel and wrist thong hole
  • Leather belt sheath with Crystolon sharpening stone
  • Knife is unmarked but is clearly Richtig's work. It was not uncommon for him to produce unmarked knives during WWII for fear of government reprisal because steel was in such high demand.
  • Likely dates to the 1940's, excellent condition (there is light scratching and staining on the blade, mostly along the cutting edge, and light scratches on the hilt, handle, and pommel)
