REDUCED PRICES ARE HIGHLIGHTED IN YELLOW
1. 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
2. Consignment ~ KL ~ Gerber MKII #A83075 (1982). Blade, handle and sheath appear to be 100%. Proper Gerber steel in sheath. $225
3. Consignment ~ KL ~ US M-3 Imperial Guard Marked. Minty, unsharpened, 99% original finish, proper early M-8 scabbard with original leg tie. Hard to upgrade this one unless it had a box. $375
4. 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
5. Consignment ~ KL ~ Camillus U.S.N. MKII guard marked. Full blade shows some sharpening. Blade, guard and pommel retain most of the original finish. Handle is excellent plus. MKII plastic scabbard shows a small amount of corrosion on the metal throat. $135

Leather washer handle is in PERFECT condition. Some small rub marks on the blade finish. Scabbard is marked RUFF N READY 4030. That trade mark was used in the 40s & 50s by a leather and knife company – they mostly made leather gear for fishing. $135
11. Consignment ~ RR ~ LF&C MK-1 1918. The handle shows the customary removing of the guard on both sides. All knuckle points and pommel point remain as issued. 6 ¾” blade has been carefully sharpened and is very sharp. Other than removing the guard sides, the knife shows very little use. Finish is thinning at the tip up about one inch. M8A1 scabbard has been carefully modified slightly at the throat and holds the knife very nicely. Belt hook has been removed. I have included a picture of two WWII GI’s wearing the 1918 knife. $740

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.
