1904 SPRINGFIELD ARMORY HOSPITAL CORPS BOLO KNIFE RARE RIA SCABBARD LEATHER LOOP

ANY QUESTIONS SEND EMAIL TO ms18911909@gmail.com

Original example in Fine condition of the U.S. M-1904 Hospital Corps Knife, often referred to by collectors as the M-1904 Bolo. The M-1904 was adopted by the US military in 1904, and all of the bolo style knives were manufactured at Springfield Armory, in Springfield, MA. The knives were heavy duty with a thick blade and a rounded tip bolo style.

The blade is bright in excellent condition with some aging imperfections, scratches; small tiny clusters of shallow pits towards the tip; tiny nick noted on the edge. Markings are well defined and deep. The knives had a re-curved brass handguard and two piece walnut scales (grip panels), which had 4 finger grooves and Mameluke style curved pommel cap. The handguard has little verdigreen patina, imperfections from fitting into the scabbard throat. The scales were secured to the tang by three large brass rivets, and a hole for a lanyard loop was in the pommel cap. Rivets, cap and lanyard loop in good shape; the wood scales are very nice rich brownish walnut with small bruises, handling marks and a small chip on one finger grove. The knives were marked U.S. on the obverse ricasso, over a serial number. The reverse ricasso was marked with the Springfield Armory mark, over a Flaming Ordnance Bomb acceptance stamp, over the year of manufacture. The knives were issued with a heavy-duty leather scabbard with a large brass throat.

The majority of the scabbards had metal, Krag bayonet style metal belt hangers, but some small quantities of the early knives were issued with scabbards that had a simple leather belt loop as on this example.The scabbard is in great shape with some patina on the copper-brass throat and leather; the belt loop little frail with some crazing and tiny little cut on an edge. Rest of the leather with normal handling little marks, bruises and scratches. Stitching looks good and it bears the RIA and 1904 marking.

This US 1904 SPRINGFIELD ARMORY BOLO KNIFE with RARE RIA Belt loop Scabbard would make a great addition to your collection.
