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.

This is my favorite fighting knife design of the WWII era. Its design is all about penetrating to the vitals. Slashing wounds are ugly but mostly survivable while deep well placed penetrating wounds are lethal in pretty short order. You either bleed out internally or externally. Now having talked about the design concept Boker got a pretty good copy made. Is it the original specification, no it is close but not spot on. Is it functional? yes absolutely! If you hunt around there are some specialty makers that make spot on copies if you are looking for a period correct knife. But you are going to pay more than this. If you want a functional combat knife this one I would carry.
