8.   Consignment ~ RG ~ Vietnam Era Hackman Survival Knife.  This knife and scabbard are both in mint condition.  Apparently a lot if not all of these knives came to the U.S. without a scabbard.  A major importer in the U.S. used the same scabbard source that was used for the Garcia Survival Knife.  Custom knife maker Bob Moran, reportedly ordered a large group of these knives and had his own high quality scabbard made for them.  I doubt that this is one of his scabbards, but it is definitely a high quality Vietnam influenced sheath design.  Handle appears dyed black with the scabbard.  Uncarried condition on both sides of knife and scabbard.  Lots of info on the knife online.  $725

  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.
