WW-2 PAL-36 knife project.


Well-Known Member
Just thought I'd share one of my recent projects. A PAL-36 that I bought cheap in very poor condition. And made into a very sturdy hunting knife. I changed the blade profile a bit by reshaping it to more of a bowie tip with false top edge. And added a much more sturdy thicker guard. Also finished the stacked leather handle to a thicker more hand filling diameter. I also made the sheath for it.

Very nice, and old relic brought back, good job! Maybe get another 70 yrs use out of it, right. Thanks for showing.

I first looked at this and thought it was one of KA BARs hunting knives they make or made. Excellent job it looks great.
