Enclosed are pics of the so called M1911 U-Boat cutlass. Very hard to come by since so few were made. This one still has the maker mark and C/M acceptance marks on the blade spine and cross guard.

Interesting. I see no scabbard. Stored onboard in a rack?

All 06 Navy Lugers the holsters, shoulder stocks, and ammo pouches alone are worth a fortune. The M1911 came with a leather scabbard many did not survive the test of time.

Interesting piece and photo - thanks for posting

Cutlass alone is an effective close quarter weapon.
