WWII PAL RH 36 FIGHTING KNIFE

Every guys needs a knife... this is one of mine. A WWII PAL RH 36 Knife.
My grandmother actually bought me this knife at a garage sale about 20 years ago. The leather sheath was badly dry rotted so I made a copy with some leather I had laying around.

The knife has been used pretty hard and is no way a show knife. I use it when I go camping.

It's actually quite a nice knife and extremely well made. Similar to the KBar USMC knife, the handle is different.

A good blade is very useful when outside camping or farm work.

So if you don't have one, think about picking up a knife, they're vintage Gear for Guys!

  1. My son gave me a knife which turned out to be a RH36 in good condition. Now I know what kind of knife it is and that it was issued to troops in WW ll.

    1. picked one up at a pawn shop two weeks ago. Yep, it's a terrific knife. Sort of like the one I had when I was in the Marine Corps many years ago. Thanks for the photos.
