USMC Corpsman Knife

The USMC Hospital Corpsman Knife was issued by the Marine Corps during World War II. It was a bolo type knife intended for clearing brush and for cutting wood for litters or shelter poles.

The Knife had an overall length of 16 1/2 inches with a blade that was 11 1/4 x 3 inches. The spoon tip blade was supplied both parkerized or bright. The wooden handle had either three or four flush rivets, steel, iron or brass. The left face of the blade was stamped with "USMC" and the manufacturer identity. Some knives were not marked with the USMC marking or the manufacturer name.

These are the listed manufacturers of the USMC Hospital Corpsman Knife:

Briddell
Chatillion
Clyde Cutlery Co.
Fayette R. Plumb
Village Blacksmith

The USMC Hospital Corpsman Knife scabbard is stitched leather with a brass riveted throat and a brass grommet hole at the tip. The back of the scabbard had a M1910 pistol belt hook attached by a heavy riveted and stitched loop of leather. Just below the hook, the leather was stamped with three rows of letters.

USMC
BOYT
42

Boyt was the only manufacturer of the scabbard, with dates from 1942 to 1945, with "44" most common, and "42" is the rarest.

*** This knife is in excellent EXCEPTIONAL Condition.

Price: $350.00
