Knife List #124

Updated 08/24/14

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.

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 $old  

 

 

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. 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. $2250.00  

 

 

 

963. Prototype 18 X-Ray as made by Darrel Ralph. This is one of three original prototype 18 X-Rays hand made by Darrel Ralph. It is the prototype using the SAS or Speed Auto Safety design. The knife comes with an e-mailed page from Darrel to Bill Adams certifying it to be one of three. As new condition prototype knife that can not be upgraded or possibly duplicated. Try to find on of the other remaining two for sale!  $1450.00

 

 

 

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. I have only seen a hand full in all my collecting years. Very Rare $400.00  

 

 

972. Korean cut down M5. These were made by Korea but cutting down lend lease M1 bayonets to make them conform to the short blade M5 series. Keep it as an M5 or buy it for the parts to restore your M1905 – M1 bayonet with the parts. $35.00

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. $1100.00

 

 

993. Russian Officers Dress Dagger and Dress Belt. This dagger is marked to 1957 in the Cold War Era. It is numbered and in outstanding condition along with the proper scabbard and presentation Army buckle belt. I obtained this set from a Russian Colonel in trade for some US stuff he was collecting, this is a dagger he actually wore while on active duty many years ago. (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. (I covered the last two digits of the serial number in the photo, they are untouched on the actual blade). Awesome set $350.00

 

 

 

1002. Vietnamese made copy of the M8A1 scabbard. This is an extremely rare scabbard from the Vietnam War. It is a metal copy of the fiberglass scabbard with a leather insert into the body. Beautifully marked to the previous owner in Vietnamese on the leather section. Comes with a Camillus M4 that has been arsenal refinished. Awesome Set $350.00

X2 - Lund, Cornhill dagger, an interesting knife, seems like a flimsy little dirk though the handle is kind of neat and the sheath is very neat. 

BL 6 1/4" - OL 10 3/4"

$600.00

X4 - Woodhead -- this is a super nice example of a standard Woodhead pattern, probably an 1840s knife. Have seen a number of them over the years but never in such nice shape. It's always nice to be able to tell a potential buyer that a knife is the best example out there, and it would be hard to argue with this one, none better.

BL 6 1/8" - OL 10 1/2"

$2,100.00

X14 (Death to Traitors) - -- Unmarked "Death to Traitors" , 7-3/4" blade. Too bad this isn't a better knife and a clearer etch, that motto brings a big premium! This is an uncommon style of cutlery. Nice sheath.

BL 7 3/4" - OL 13 1/8"

$650.00

X15 - -- John West narrow tang ivory handle with lion pommel, wide 8-1/2" blade. 

Awesome chance to own one.

BL 8 1/2" - OL 14 1/8"

$4,500.00

X34 - "Brabec / For ---- seur / Imperial / Ft Royal" stamp -- 9" blade -- This sure looks like a Joseph Rodgers knife, sheath and all, and they did private brand some knives although a lot of them carry both retailer and mfr markings. Rodgers knives are of course super high quality and a big wide blade, that's good! Tip missing from sheath.

BL 8 7/8" - OL 13 1/2"

$1,500.00

X38 - This is THE knife on page 178-9 of The Antique Bowie Knife Book. Superior condition wood handle with a fabulous blade and super nice sheath. It doesn't get any better with General Zachery Taylor as the prominent figure on the blade. 

Awesome piece that will be the center piece of any collection! 

$5,500.00
