SUPER RARE WWII USMC 1st USMC KA-BAR "RED SPACER" FIGHTING KNIFE W/SHEATH. This is a super rare WWII "Red Specer" USMC Fighting/Utility knife.It is super rare because it was the very 1st Version of the KA-BAR fighting knives that Union Cutlery Company made for the Marines during WWII and very few of this 1st version were made and very few of those survived the war. You can tell it is a 1st Version because its blade has a so-called "blunt" grind (almost straight false edge) which was only used on the 1st Version - as opposed to the so-called "conventional" grind (more deeply concave false edge) used on all of the later versions. As shown by the photos this particular knife was sharpened and well-used during the war, but remains solid, tight and overall in very good to excellent condition.
It comes with a rather rare "USMC/BOYT/43" sheath, which has had the marking over-stamped for some reason.
