REDUCED PRICES ARE HIGHLIGHTED IN YELLOW
2. Consignment ~ KL ~ Vietnam Hackman Findland Survival Knife. MINT condition blade, handle and screw top pommel (nothing inside). Randal 7” scabbard (also MINT) with the Randal made knives stamp Xed out (you can read it if you know what you are looking at). $425
3. Consignment ~ KL ~ Gerber MKII-- 1977 production. Modified by adding a cord grip over the grey armorhide and epoxying it in place. The braided spiral on top actually makes it a very “non slip grip.” Blued blade is full and very sharp. Gerber style (unmarked) sheath is made of very heavy leather with large rivets holding it together. All of the leather is heavily waxed in the style of an early dive knife scabbard. I feel that this is what the “modifier” had in mind. Very interesting piece in excellent condition.
4. Consignment ~ KL ~ WWII Vintage Everitt Knuckle Knife with original scabbard. Some finish missing at the tip of the blade. A couple nicks on the edges (see pictures). Proper Green color repainted handle has some nicks and wear marks (see pictures). Original sheath is solid and supple. Snap works fine. A very nice example. $650
5. Consignment ~ KL ~ WWII Marine Parachutist Knife W/Sheath as shown in Cole’s Book 4, Page 186 and Silvey U.S. Military Knives 1941-1991, Pg. 312. Totally unmarked except for brass butt cap engraved with the initials R.H.P. and apparently a serial #31268750 which if tracked down should lead to the branch of service and person who owned the knife. Excellent plus condition, knife and sheath. $600
6. Consignment ~ KL ~ Shipboard Made Dagger. Blade is from a rare Australian Commando Stiletto ( see Silvey WWII pgs 74 and 75 ) 7 ½” long and double edged with a pronounced ¼” thick ricasso. Unmarked version. Guard and pommel are aluminum and the handle is plexiglass washers. Period scabbard is marked 2278 at the top. Knife was obviously made by someone that knew what he was doing.
7. Consignment ~ KL ~ Vietnam Gerber, 1969 MFG. Actually a very nice example. 6 ¾ wasp waist blade is full with likely very careful sharpening. Lots of tine spots on the surface (see last picture) but nothing that I can feel. Distinctive cant to the blade. A couple of small chips on the guard. Finish removed on the top of the pommel (see picture). I don’t know why this would have been done…original late ’69 sheath is in excellent condition. $850
8. Consignment ~ KL ~ WWII Era Western Shark Knife. 6” bright blade may have been carefully sharpened. No scratches or sharpening marks anywhere on the blade. Brass guard, aluminum pommel. Proper Western Double Stitched scabbard is in excellent condition as well. $155
9. Consignment ~ KL ~ WWII CASE Survival Knife. Metal handle 5” blade has some tiny corrosion spots on the left side of the blade, none on the right side. Screw off pommel includes a built in compass that actually still works. Original basketweave sheath has snap strap broken. $200
10. Consignment ~ KL ~ Consignment ~ KL ~ WWII Vintage M-2 Parachute Knife. Shrade Walden, NY USA. Full blade shows previous polishing and cleaning, resulting in a slightly wavy appearance. Bolster, handles, spring, lock and bail are all in excellent condition. $375
11. Consignment ~ KL ~ WWII CASE Fighting/Utility Knife. Parkerized 6” blade appears unsharpened to me. (I’m not sure just how “perfect” that these were made.) Steel guard and pommel cap. 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. $140
12. Consignment KL ~ WWII Western Raft Knife. Near mint condition in original scabbard. $40
13. Consignment ~ RR ~ US M-3 Boker. Guard marked. Knife is unsharpened and retains about 99% of the original finish, minty M-8 sheath with leg tie down. $695
14. Sale Pending ~ Consignment ~ RR ~ Robeson U.S.M.C. MK-II with proper original black stitched scabbard. Blade shows a lot of very light corrosion toward the tip (You can’t feel it, but you can see it.) Scabbard is supple with the snap strap intact and functional. A tough knife to find in any condition. Not so careful sharpening to the edge. Guard is slightly loose. Handle is excellent and tight. Pommel is tight. Very nice bluing on ricasso and in the fuller. $650
15. Consignment ~ RR ~ WWII Theater conversion of a Springfield Armory 1909 bayonet. Shortened original scabbard is missing the belt hook. Original keeper latch and button is intact and works fine. Barrel ring has been removed. Original S.A. grips with no cracks or chips. 8 ¼” blade is in excellent condition with much of the bluing remaining. $100
16. 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. $750
17. Consignment ~ RR ~ Vietnam Vintage Marbles Jet Pilot Knife. 6” blade appears unsharpened. Entire knife is in 99% condition. Small amount of finish thinning at the tip. I do not believe that the scabbard is original to the knife because it has the snap strap in the “Camillus” 6” knife position and it has more wear than the knife. (Scabbards do get swapped around in collections at times.) A very nice piece none the less. $650
18. Consignment ~ RR ~ Vietnam Era Canadian Arsenal shotgun 1917 bayonet and scabbard. Both are in mint condition. Scare bayonet. $300
19. Consignment ~ HM ~ Presentation Buffalo Bill Knife attributed to MAC V SOG SFC Rex L. Jaco. Mint condition presented piece with letter from Jason Hardy. Awesome piece of SOG/Vietnam War history. $2200

25. Consignment ~ MM ~ John EK Miami Made Model 3. 5th Special Forces group knife. The 5th group ordered 12 in 1970. For some reason, the order was never completed and remained in a semi-finished state until John Ek’s son, Gary Ek, finished 4 pieces in the early 90’s. This is one of the 4 knives with a finished handle. They did not come with an EK sheath. Ultra rare Vietnam piece! $1995
26. Consignment ~ MC ~ WWII Australian Pattern 1907 Bayonet. Wilkinson Sword Co.Mfg. Ricasso marked with WSC, date and other Commonwealth proofs. Original unfinished blade is the full 17” and appears unsharpened. Handle is marked AUSTRALIA on one side. Guard is tight and latch works smoothly. Maroon colored leather scabbard is in 100% condition and blueing top and bottom is about 98%. Back of scabbard is broad arrow marked and maker’s name is “MANDGROVITE 43”. I believe this was a Sydney based leather company. $100
27. Consignment ~ HH ~ Robeson USMC MKII MINT condition with proper black stitched leather scabbard. There is not much that I say about this knife except MINTY… 100% bluing, 100% leather. $3750

29. Consignment ~ BB ~ Vietnam Era LaGana Tomahawk. Original “American Tomahawk Company” oxblood sheath. It is Possible that this “Hawk” has been rehandled at some time.

30. Consignment ~ BB ~ Marbles Jet Pilot Prototype. Marbles states that their 1956 prototype was made from a modified 5” EXPERT and supplied with a commercial 5” EXPERT Marbles sheath.

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.
