Knife List #143

Updated 05/17/15

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.  

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.

 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 Originally made to show Naval Ordnance how the handle was created and attached.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 $450.00  

 

 

 

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

 

  

 

 

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 can’t 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. $65.00 

 

 

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.  $55.00
