Knife List #113

Updated 04/20/14

I guarantee all items to be authentic and as described. I give a seven (7) business day inspection period with any purchase. If you are not happy with the knife for any reason please return it for a full refund. No reasons needed, just contact me to let me know it is coming back. If you need to return a knife please ship it insured as we can not be responsible for the postal company chosen. I prefer payment by PayPal, but will accept Cash, Money Order or Certified Check. I also accept personal checks but I have to wait 10 days or more to see if they clear if we have not done business before.

I will hold a knife for 7 days for you. If I do not hear from you then it goes back into the list. I will do a lay a way plan, contact me and we can make the arrangements.  

P.S.

I am listing a few knives that are the original knives used by Howard Cole to draw his famous photos in his books. These are the exact knives he held and studied to create his art. Here is your chance to own a piece of history. All BK marked knives come with a Letter of Provenance.

 

BK35. Aluminum handled knife show in Cole IV pg 177. Made from the blade of the “Delta Knife” with a cast aluminum grip. As the Delta was made and sold in 1944 – 1945 era this is a WW II era knife or possibly the demo made before the plastic grip was devised. In any case this is the very knife shown in Cole IV and will come with a letter of authenticity as proof. $300.00

 

 

 

964. Colonial made Mark 1 clear handle prototype knife. Originally made to show Naval Ordnance haw the handle was created and attached. These knives were presented for testing and approved for production. Production was in black with a parkerized finish. These prototypes were clear or somewhat milky with a polished bright blade.

970. This one impresses me, an Original Gus Marsh 3 piece handmade Sea Wolf Knife one of only 28 made and no others are known by me to exist. This is the original, authentic, exact knife in Cole IV pg. 177 where Howard states the knife is unmarked, it is not, it was engraved lightly with ARG 7337-1 / CPT on the grip on both sides. I have attempted to post photos of the light etching so you can see it. This is one of the rarest US Military used knives in existence and crosses over into the Diving world as well. Superb and super rare piece. Harvey Reisberg did a great article in these for Knife World. Gus said most were probably lost in Subic Bay or San Diego so no one knows haw many are left in the world. Once in a lifetime opportunity $6000.00
