Böker Plus M3 Trench Knife 02BO1943 military dagger
The Böker Plus M3 Trench Knife 02BO1943 is a cool military dagger. A replica from the M3 Fighting Knife from the Second World War. This knife was introduced in 1943 as a fixed knife for soldiers who didn't already carry a bayonet. The design looks a lot like the famous USMC Knife which was produced by, amongst others KA-BAR. The main difference, however, can be found in the fact that the M3 is sharp on both sides.
The piercing tip of the Böker Plus M3 Trench Knife is sharpened on both sides. To prevent your hand from slipping en ending up on the edge, the knife was enhanced with a steel knife guard.
To meet the demand of the US Department of Defence during the Second World War, the M3 Trench Knife was produced by several knife companies. Amongst others by the American branch of Böker: H. Böker & Co. And this is how you come full-circle and end up with this contemporary Böker Plus version of the M3 Trench Knife. A real collector's object.
The Böker M3 Trench Knife 02BO1943 comes with a solid steel 'scabbard' that is great for both left and right-handed use. It also contains a mounting hook to attach it to your military gear.
