Knife List #122

Updated 07/20/14

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.

(If you like bayonets than you should be a member of the Society of American Bayonet Collectors. It is the premier organization of like minded folks collecting and forwarding the knowledge of American Bayonets. Members are from around the world and contribute to the quarterly Journal with the best scholarly articles in the business. Join up and you will wonder why you didn't all these years.)

566. Eickhorn Bayonet 2000 Wire Cutter in as new condition in the original packaging. Another rare Eickhorn bayonet, this one was not selected by the USMC in the trials. A rare bayonet made in the US but not adopted. $300.00  

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

932. Awesome Canadian Training bayonet as shown in the ABC book. Super rare and hard to come by, training bayonets got more use and abuse so rarely survive beyond a few months in use and were rarely saved. Has some age pitting and loss of chrome finish. Cool piece $200.00  

 

 

962. Prototype Benchmark JFKSWC knife in as new condition. Circa 1984 Benchmark received an order from the JFK Special Warfare Center for the TAC-II.

This is a one of a kind Special Forces knife retained by the factory. A super piece for an advanced Special Forces collection. $2250.00

Try to find on of the other remaining two for sale!  $1450.00

(It comes with and extra as new Russian Navy belt and buckle I also obtained from him.) As you can see this one has the Communist insignia of the USSR era.
