Knife List #137

Updated 02/22/15

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



927. USMC Bayonet 2000 as new still in factory fresh package, never in the scabbard. 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 knife 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





964. Colonial made Mark 1 clear handle prototype knife. Originally made to show Naval Ordnance how the handle was created and attached.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. I have only seen a hand full in all my collecting years. Very Rare $500.00  




977. Marto / Phrobis manufactured M9 for the Franklin Mint Desert Shield plaques they made. No manufacturer marking on the M9 stamping. Comes with the original edge protector used in shipping. $250.00




985. Phrobis International M9 with black plastic scabbard and black oxide blade. One of only thirty five ever made with all black parts. The black oxide coated blade with this marking may be the hardest of all pieces to find. Hesitate and you are lost. Super rare piece. $1200.00





1010. Phrobis XM 9. Here we have a super rare XM9 prototype as submitted by Phrobis for the Army Original M9 testing. Has all the correct markings, XM9 / 29 with 29 being the manufacturer number of Phrobis as the submitting agency. Correct scabbard with the bayonet as they were a ďsystemĒ to use the wire cutters and has the real M9 pistol magazine pouch with it. Super piece, $4500.00  




1028. Phrobis Intl M9A1 Tan. Made and marked to Spain, the M9A1 is the improved version of the M9 bayonet with the improved design sheath. Not many made and desirable in the tan color. $550.00





1056. Phrobis III first generation M9 as made by Buck with the Chevron date stamping. The Army made Phrobis stop production and change the marking to remove the date chevron Buck used in all their production making these bayonets super rare. This is one numbered super low 015 making it a very early knife. It also has three hardness test markings being one of the earliest produced and tested by BUCK. Two near the M9 marking and one further down near the tip of the blade. This is the only one like this I have seen. Like new with only in and out of the scabbard markings. $1200.00




1058. Lan-Cay Dutch contract M9 bayonet. With only 150 made this is another super rare piece. Scabbard is a Lan-Cay made item but had to be made to the early Buck / Phrobis spec to be accepted for the Dutch Govt contract. Very few have ever made it to market, this one is like new mint. $750.00



1060. Marto M9 new in the box bayonet made in Spain for the Spanish and European market. Very hard to find in the US, in like new condition, with proper covered stone sheath. Unique Marto markings, as stated not for export and should not be in the US. $550.00



1063. An Archangel bayonet from the Ruger 22 conversion kit. This canít be purchased alone from the factory, you need to buy the rifle conversion kit to get one. But here is one that was sold separately by the previous owner. Hard to find without the rifle. $60.00 



1064. . M9 Rubber training bayonet made from a mold of a Buck M9. Has the M9 / Phrobis III / U.S.A. / Pat. Pend. Marking on the Obverse ricasso and Buck / 188 / U.S.A > on the Reverse side. Very hard to find practice piece you need for your collection.  $50.00  




1067. Kinfolks 6 inch Hunting knife as issued in WW II. This is the early one with the flat steel pommel but has the WW II Kinfolks marking. Has correct Kinfolks marked scabbard that has been dyed black by a previous owner. Both in overall excellent condition. $100.00




1069. Italian Fascist Letter Opener and paper weight. From WW II origin has the correct SPQR marking and is marked to Rome. The grip is capped off with the wolf figure feeding the twins and the cross guard has two wolf heads represent Romulus and Remus and the founding of Rome. Great historical piece. Has some slight bends to the opener blade but overall great condition. $250.00




1071. Utica Jet Pilots Survival Knife. This may be  the best condition Utica I have ever had, it is outstanding. Shows normal storage wear and in and out of the scabbard marks but retains the factory edge and coloring throughout. Perfect clear markings and the gray pommel paint intact. Has the original Norton / Pike 280 sharpening stone in the pocket and in one piece. Overall super Utica JPK. $950.00




1072. Kiffe Vietnam Era Recon knife. Original Iron guard knife with blued blade and Kiffe markings. Handle is full and solid with original leather lace thong.

This is the wood gripped model without the steel bolster and red brass rivets. Collins Marking is struck light but is there. $175.00  



1077. Camillus N.Y. Mark2. A great Vietnam era Mark2 with the correct Ox-Blood MRT coating on the knife and the sheath. This knife has the correct N.Y. marking and the MRT smell is still with it. This is one of the scarcer knives made with the 1.175 wide blade that was only used on these knives made by Camillus. It is a subset within the NY marked knives and pretty hard to find. Has typical wear of a carried knife but still retains the factory edge. 80% of the Park and MRT remains intact. Super Vietnam piece. $old




1079. Vietnam Era M3 type knife sold in the PX and through magazine ads to GIís. As seen in the Kiffe and Gutmann Cutlery ads throughout men's magazines this knife is a clear example of marketing for the troops. Stick it in a M8A1 scabbard and have a rig just like a GI carried in 1967. Knife is unmarked and perfect. $40.00






1082. H Boker & Co. Blade Marked M3 Trench Knife. Very Rare Double Tang peened pommel.
