Richie USN CB Knuckle Knife
M. M. Richie made a special Knuckle Knife that was made to be held in the hand while he was running his bulldozer in the Pacific Theater. If the Japs forced him off his equipment his knife was ready at hand. This is a one of a kind specimen and the scabbard is the control stalk.
Name: Richie USN CB Knuckle Knife
Description: M. M. Richie a USN Seabee made this Knuckle Knife with a triangular tool steel blade 7 inches in length that rings when struck. A brass knuckle handle with 4 finger stalls was cast onto the blade and the S shaped steel guard. 3 steel pyramidal spikes were set in the knucklebow and the back of the grip was carved out to fit the bulldozer controls. There are no references as I obtained it from his widow.
