A nice example of one of the rarest and most desirable maker-marked war period fighters. Floyd Nichols, a blacksmith from David City NE, is famous among fighting knife collectors.
If you have ever heard of Floyd Nichols, you likely know how he took it upon himself to personally make knives for US Servicemen back during WW2. Stories I have read indicate that he became aware that the US Government was unable to equip each and every serviceman going off to war with a knife, so Floyd started making knives upon request of families that wanted to make sure their "boy" had a knife with him when going off to war. All of this information is available online if the reader is interested in finding out more about this "blacksmith and artist" who crafted knives as his own personal contribution to the war effort.You should also look at my other items for sale as there is no telling what you will find since I try to find unusual or collectible items. You just might find that special something.
