Newly adjusted prices are marked in RED
1. Consignment ~ MC ~ This knife was made by Landers, Frary, & Clark at the end of WWI. So late in the war that is was never used much, if at all.WWII found the U.S. in a GIANT world war, but with only left over knives from WWI. The 1918 Mark 1 was issued to Airborne units, and a few other elite units until the supply was exhausted. This knife scabbard is missing the belt hooks (as most of them were). I am including a picture of American WWII GIs wearing the 1918 but having to have rigged up a way to get it to hang off of their belts. The finish on this blade is thinning but has ZERO rust or corrosion. No grinding, and it APPEARS TO NOT HAVE BEEN SHARPENED. If it has, it was very carefully done and only on the edge. The blade measures 6 5/8 " long (outside of the handle). The handle and pommel are 100%, with zero modifications to either piece. Scabbard is missing about 30% of the blue finish and does have several spots of corrosion. Landers, Frary, and Clark made several other knives and swords for the US during WWI as well. $995
2. 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. $245
3. Consignment ~ MC ~ Marbles Jet Pilot Knife. Commercial version. Very unusual as it has a 5” Ideal blade vs a 6” blade. No saw teeth on the back either. Likely made up from left over parts at the factory… Never seen one before. Excellent plus condition. Early US GI scabbard. $295
4. Consignment ~ MC ~ Vietnam Era Camillus NY MKII. Excellent unused condition. Proper brown handle and scabbard. $135
5. 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! $2295
6. Consignment ~ MM ~ 7” CISO Recon Knife. One of 1300 provided to SOG early in the Vietnam war and completely sterile. Comes with a reproduction sheath that is identical to the original version and comes with a correct stone. This knife was sent to Ben Baker in January 2004 and authenticated by Ben as one of his 7” Recon knifes. Ben supplied a very detailed one page certificate of authenticity and 4 color photos of the knife and sheath all signed and initialed by him. Ben also explained that this knife was from the earliest batch of knives as evidenced by the small choil cut-out just ahead of the guard. Ben supplied a drawing showing this. All documents are originals and will accompany the knife. Ultra rare authentication from the man who designed the SOG knives. $3495
7. Consignment ~ MM ~ John EK Model 8 Survival Skin Diver Knife. Introduced in Miami. Oversized handle, rare saw teeth, wrist thong and an unmarked EK sheath. Ultra rare and rarely offered for sale. $1195
8. Consignment ~ HH ~ SOG 7” CISO RECON. The very nicest 7” Recon that I have ever seen. Knife, blade, handle, scabbard, etc. are in excellent plus condition. Scabbard is 99% including proper stone—still in the wax paper wrapper. This knife has been authenticated by Ben Baker himself. A photo of Baker and previous owner is included in this sale. Also included is a letter from Gary Boyd adding to the authenticity of the knife. My guess is that it could be the most authenticated and best condition 7” Recon CISO in captivity. $5000
9. 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. $4000
10. Consignment ~ HH ~ SOG Presentation Round Tip Bolo. “PRESENTED SSG ROBERT SKINNER SOA (CCC) 5TH SFGA, KONTUM VIETNAM” with original wood wall mounting plaque.

11. Consignment ~ HH ~ This is the actual Mission Prototype Serial #T106P. This actual titanium protype knife is accompanied by field tests covering several months and includes Navy Seals in Alaska, Puerto Rico, and in the Louisiana-Mississippi area. This knife includes the original diamond sharpener in brass case that was with the knife throughout its testing. (It does not appear to have been used.) After reading these accounts, it is no wonder that it was adopted by the Navy Seals. $2250
12. Consignment ~ HH ~ Western U.S.A. Model 221J Survival/Fighting Knife. 6 ¾” blade appears unsharpened. One small spot of corrosion on the left side. 100% finish on guard, handles and pommel. No sheath with this knife. $75
13. Consignment ~ BB ~ Vietnam Era LaGana Tomahawk. Original “American Tomahawk Company” oxblood sheath. It is Possible that this “Hawk” has been rehandled at some time.

14.SOLD---------------------------------Consignment ~ BB ~ Model 1832 Foot Soldiers Artillery Sword by Ames. Dated 1839. Authenticating this sword is above my pay-grade. Even after a couple of hours on the Internet, I can say that it seems that there are more reasons to think that it is legit than to say that it is not. Sword is in excellent condition. Blade appears to have a tiny crack just above the eagle on the ricasso. Scabbard shows drying and cracking, but it remains very solid. Note all of the photos and markings. Examples online are from $1200 to $4000. We are going with the lower end. $500
15. 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. Proper Ferro Bluing on blade, guard and pommel. “Roller Coaster” stamping on ricasso. Blade is unsharpened and retains nearly 100% finish. Not a “one of a kind” knife but darned close to it. $900

23. Consignment ~ BB ~ WWII Era John EK Knife. Model 1, number G192. Knife is in the original box with the original “YOUR SILENT PARTNER” handbook. Box is serial numbered to the knife. The other end of the box appears to be actually signed by John Ek. (Hard to read, but it is there) and 1944. Also the knife was apparently made for (also on box end) “Pvt.

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.
