USA WWII OSS PANCAKE FLAPPER FIGHTING KNIFE.
A very good example recently retrieved from a military store from a central European country, known as the pancake flapper because of the nature and shape of the upper part of the scabbard. The blade is absolutely mint, no reprofiling or damage, all blued finish overall to both sides of the blade, cross guard and hilt with original finish. There is slight rubbing through handling to the grip revealing the brass colour below. Its original olive drab painted scabbard with all the paint finish remaining with minor edge marks and a section rubbed through the paint to the basic steel from the back of the grip of the knife. The leather is superb. The rubber ring that holds the hilt close to the pancake flapper is missing.
