Imperial M3 Knives Made in Italy

These pieces are somewhat rare to find, the real thing is actually easier to pick up. These knives were made for the French Foreign Legion by an Italian firm. A knife was given to the firm and they were told to make them like it. Well they did so and even copied the markings. Many went to Atlanta Cutlery but were not sold, they were sent back.

Rounded backcut and different style stamping.
