Many different types of blades were used by the American troops during the Second World War. This E.G. Waterman fighting knife was one of the most versatile and hence popular ones. As a fighting knife in the trenches its flat back and solid point of the blade made it very effective. It was also sturdy enough for use as a survival knife, making this knife popular also among civilians. There is a handy bottle opener built into the shoulder of the blade.
