      that's an old bolo knife . these are very collectable pcs to a lot of folks. great find !

      the makers mark is from the spring field armory . the flaming bomb is / was their proof mark. the grip isn't original and the blades been broken at the tip and rounded .. that's common on them . youd be quite surprised to see its highest bid !

      on 2nd thought , I just viewed a 1911 model that's scabbard and blade are rounded like this. most were not. its a really nice rare old ww1 knife.
