Though far from an expert, I know that persons and companies across the US manufactured combat knives to aid in the war effort. Many of these are very well made and others are quite crude.


Based on the handle, blade shape and marks and the manner the leather scabbard is constructed, I'd guess that your blades fall into this category.


My two cents (and I may VERY WELL be wrong)....

What is the marking on the blade and sheath? What does the blade look like? Several known theater knife makers used red micarta and oval copper cross guards. I can look again with some additional information.
