Knife List #165

Updated 01/24/16

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

 

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 Originally made to show Naval Ordnance how the handle was created and attached.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  Now $375.00

 

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

1115. Camillus made Pilots Survival Knife. This is the unmarked version as made by Camillus. Blade has been tipped and reshaped. Has the proper scabbard with what looks like a German Bayonet retainer strap. $65.00 NOW $35.00

 

 

 

1151. Model of 1895 Krag Cadet bayonet. This is the scaled down version of the Model of 1892 Krag bayonet used by the Cadets at West Point right up until 1962 when the Corps changed to the M14 rifle for parade use. Shows long time used and carry but is all there with light sharpening and proper metal sheath. Has a rack number inked on the blade. Hard to find correct piece. $1750.00

 

 

 

1154. Archangel black plastic bayonet used by the conversion of the Ruger .22 rifle to the black fantasy piece. Hard to find bayonet alone, you have to by the full rifle kit to get it. $60.00

 

 

 

 

1158. Lancay 1st contract M9 bayonet with a second contract blade. As the design and evolution continued while making the bayonets Lancay received permission to use the newer style blades on the original first contract. A very scarce bayonet to find as only the last 1000 were made this way. Still covered in packing grease. $550.00

 

 

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

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.
