Here is a picture of a couple more knives and scabbards from the Pacific Theatre. The top one is a 10 1/2" long knife my father fabricated while aboard ship during the war, with the pommel made out of aluminum and the blade is steel. The multicolored handle pieces are made from celluloid and aluminum. The second one is 11" long and a has Kutmaster Utica NY logo on it. I am not sure if it was a USN issued knife or theatre knife.

The bottom knife appears to be a WWI Springfield bayonet that has had about 10" cut/broken off and re-ground.

Jerry very well could be part of a bayonet, I read it very common for knive companies to use broken bayonets and swords to refashion into fighting knives. I was wondering if should some type of leather oil on the scabbards to protect them, a couple of them are pretty stiff.

My Dad made some when he was in Germany during WWII that were pretty neat. He said they were made from a leaf spring from an army truck. My brothers ended up with them or I would post a picture. Must have been a way to pass time for some guys.

Tandy leather used to sell a cream called hide rejuvenater. Used it on some old leather seemed to help. But neatsfoot oil probably works just as well.
