      Scroll down to the melted glass image, there is some info at that point.
      The handle is based on the design for swords and daggers for the MVSN (Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazionale, or Voluntary Militia for National Security), better known as Mussolini's "Blackshirts".

      Just an after-thought, if you think about removing the black "gunk" on the hilt, be careful not to use anything aggressive to shift it. The handle is a faux-ivory, probably ivorine, so a form of plastic.

      Verr thanks for the information do you have any suggestions on what could be used to clean it ?
    4. verretcheque verretcheque, 7 years ago
      No expert on anything, but a good researcher, that is my rôle. I'd advise talking to a militaria or arms expert here, Blunderbuss2 or pw-collector for example....
      No-one can know everything.
      But you have found something of significance, even if only delivered to US/UK troops, as souvenirs.
      Fratelli Scuotto had no market after the 10/08/ 1943, when Naples fell to Gen Bernard Montgomery and General Mark Clark.

      Thanks again looks like these don't show up to often I'm gonna work on removing the black stuff.

      I updated the photo after removing the paint what a difference. Does anyone know what the eagle grip is made from what metal?

      Whitman75 did you find anything else out about this knife as I have one but with black handle?
