Knife List #172

Updated 05/01/16

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.  

 

 Military Knives

 

 

 

1221.)    The MACE (Martial Arts Center of Excellence) Dunham – Wetherbee IT Couse Award Presentation knife.

The Dunham – Wetherbee award is awarded by the MAIT (Martial Arts Instructor Trainer) staff to the Most Improved Marine during the course. The Knife is an Ek Commando Model 3 with black para-cord grip and gold plated cross guard. The knife comes in a fitted wood case with red felt cut out inlay. Named after Corporal Jason Dunham, MOH recipient  and 1st Lieutenant Alexander Wetherbee, both killed in action in Iraq in 2004. This is the third variant of the award created and presented in 2007. Comes with history of the award and documentation. $650.00

1313.)    Cloth type sheath for the M1917 bayonet. Like new with correct M1910 bent hook hanger. $20.00  
(I thought these were for the training bayonet but Gary Cunningham found they were for the M1917. The trainer does not fit!)

 

 

1314.)    Imperial M7 bayonet still in the correct government wrap, never opened. Has the Imperial contract number in the bag which is a 1973 Fiscal year contract to Imperial. Keep it original or open it up and let out the 1973 air, your choice. $65.00  

 

 

 

1315.)    USMC Bayonet 2000 as new still in factory fresh package. Here we have the rarest USMC bayonet in existence and in the original package! This bayonet stirred up quite a bit of controversy when it was selected by the Marines as the front line bayonet for the Corps. With lawsuits and holdups the Eickhorn company filed for bankruptcy and the bayonet was dropped from the selection. Still it was an official USMC bayonet for a very short time period. Required for an advanced USMC collection, most folks probably never heard of this bayonet. $600.00

 

 

1319.)    Prototype 18 X-Ray Auto made by Darrel Ralph. This is one of three original prototype 18 X-Rays hand made by Darrel Ralph that went on to become the premier Camillus folder in the Cuda lineup.

1320.)    Prototype Benchmark JFKSWC knife in as new condition. Circa 1984 Benchmark received an order from the JFK Special Warfare Center for the TAC-II. They requested a different pommel, one that could be used for hammering. This is that prototype they submitted for that project. The blade is marked BenchMark / by Gerber and serial numbered 000000. This is a one of a kind Special Forces knife retained by the factory. A super piece for an advanced Special Forces collection. $2750.00  Now $2,600.00

This machete still has the dipped blade covering, I have never seen one like this before but have seen other long tern storage items that were dipped in the same soft wax/rubber type coating. Obviously never used, you buy it and you can take the covering off for the first time since 1944. $250.00   Now $210.00

Classic Books On Sale

B001.) The American Bayonet by Albert N. Hardin 

Still the standard reference book on United States Bayonets. This is the one all others are measured by. Hardin has done all the research for us on the American bayonet and to date little has been found to add to this work. It is dated with little coverage on the M7 but prior to that is all you want to know. Last printed in 1987 it is very rare to find on the market today. 

Excellent Condition Now $100.00
