Additional background: The U.S. WW2 M3 fighting knife / M3 trench knife was an American military combat knife first issued in March of 1943. The M3 knife was originally designated for issue to U.S. soldiers that were not otherwise equipped with a bayonet. However, it was particularly designed for use by forces that were in need of a close combat knife such as Airborne Forces and Army Rangers. So these particular units received priority for the M3 knives at the start of production.
