1.   Consignment ~ KL ~ Hungarian Airborne Recon Platoon Throwing Knife.  Circa 70’s & 80’s.  Near mint 8” blade appears unsharpened. Two piece numbers matching scabbard is designed to be separated from the frog and the knife to be thrown directly from the lower portion of the sheath itself.  On the handle is embossed with a scout car, a parachute, a lightning bolt and the Hungarian flag.  On the other side is MN in a circle.  It stands for Magyar Nephadseregh, (Hungarian Peoples Army).  Steven Dick wrote an article on this knife a long time ago (see pictures).  Actually one of the most unique designs that I have seen.                                                   $395

4.   SOLD------------------------------------------Consignment ~ KL ~ Vietnam Era SOG Knife.  This is one of the earliest numbered 6” Recon knives.  Near MINT condition with only a small amount of wear on the stone pocket snap.  Serial #986 ,as seen on page 27 of Mike Silvey’s latest book.  This is the actual knife pictured.  This is a quote from Mike explaining the difference in the finish.  “…what you are seeing is a result of factory re-bluing.  The first batch of knives were found to be too soft.  They were disassembled then re-heat treated. Heat treating leaves some carburization and a flakey burnt surface on the blade prior to re-bluing.  They certainly were not polished before bluing like the later ones were.  Those early blued numbered ones show significant difference in finish.  None are polished but all generally have a flat finish.  I believe that knife to be in mint condition and as issued.”                                                                 $2800

7.   Consignment ~ KL ~ Vietnam Era Parsons Knuckle Knife.  Excellent plus condition.  Still retains most of the chemical darkening on the handle, M-7 blade is unsharpened and retains about 99% of its original finish.  Very unique custom made scabbard has been stitched by machine and scalloped to fit the knife handle.  Owner’s name is on the back and his initials are stamped into the pommel area (see pictures).  This knife and scabbard show some age, but I believe that it was never carried.  Very nice.     $575

A NEW BOOK OUT ON:THE MODEL 1918 MARK 1 TRENCH KNIFE AND VARIATIONS"  by Greg Aloisio,  306 pages, hardcover large format. Many never before seen period photos with the knife being worn as well as the examination of the various makers by distinguishing differences in maker’s marks and font patterns.  (John's comment: Outstanding book for the beginning and advanced collector)

  FAKE F/S--The following information is being presented in the hope that other collectors will not get burnt:
Fake 2nd Pattern F/S--Made to be a Free French  Variation--The 6 7/8" blade is blackened, under the black is what appears to be a copper plating or coating. The guard has a small Broad Arrow on the top side. The blackened knurled grip has a large Cross  imbedded in the knurling. The Cross is aprox 1/2" tall and 3/8" wide.  After talking with a couple friends, John Fischer and Tom Parker and re-reading a section of Ron Flook's book, I have come to the conclusion that this thing is bogus.
This additional information came from fellow collector Kerry Gordon.  (thanks Kerry)
I just thought that you might like to know that you weren't the only one ever caught with one of these - not only do I have the French version but I also have one with the Belgian Rampant Lion stamped into the hilt.

The real give away with these is that the blade tang doesn't run all the way through the pommel nut, there's about two threads empty at the end of the nut.  The other thing is that the brass pommel nuts are painted with gloss black paint rather than blackened.

Someone spent a lot of time and effort on these, the blades are tinned under the blackening and the hilts are blackened brass that is reasonable well checkered.
