The following items are being sold by Gary Ruleford email@example.com
Note : Just to be clear… Any new knives are listed in the consignor’s personal listings, and not necessarily at the top of this page.
Newly adjusted prices are marked in RED
1. Consignment ~ Mike ~ Very unique LAN-CAY M-9 bayonet. Factory coated with a gray and white splinter pattern. It could also be considered a desert camo. Absolutely MINT with factory scabbard tip protector. $150
2. Consignment ~ AA ~ Earliest “Screw Top Camillus MKII U.S.N. with CARE TAG. This knife is absolutely MINT-unsharpened. The U.S.N. marked sheath is near MINT with only abut 4 small spots on the front. CARE TAG is in two pieces, but it is all there. $325
3. Consignment ~ AA ~ U.S.M-3 Aerial. Theater re-handle. The grooves in the handle appear to have been replaced by plexiglass. Fiber spacers at each end make me think that several mint knives were taken apart and rebuilt in the new owner’s image. Knife and M-8 scabbard are both minty. A very unique piece. $525
4. Consignment ~ AA ~ Very early KA-BAR U.S.M.C. Mark II. Theater rehandled with plexiglass and an aluminum pommel. Full blade retains about 50% of its finish. WWII period sheath. Some careful sharpening, but no grinding, bellying or abuse. $145
5. Consignment ~ AA ~ USMC PAL MKII. Blade shows a slight bellying at the rear from sharpening. No grinding. Lots of spotting on blade, but I only see a small spot of corrosion on the left side near the tip. Handle is solid and tight with one dime size hole near the pommel. U.S.N. marked leather scabbard is in very good condition. LVG marked on front. $235
6. Consignment ~ AA ~ WWII Army Air Corps 5” Camillus. Made on the Marbles 5” Ideal pattern. Knife and scabbard are excellent, with some slight grinding at the bottom edge. Very tight, solid handle. Original snap strap works fine, but has pulled off of the rivet in back. $125
7. Consignment ~ AA ~ 1986 MII Gerber Anniversary Knife. It IS made by Gerber. It DOES have a fusel handle. It IS a wasp waist blade (appears unsharpened). It DOES have a wicked canted blade. It DOES have the keeper strap coming from the right. It IS NOT $2000! Excellent condition.
8. Consignment ~ AA ~ Remington Mfg.1917 Bayonet. Plated, presumably, for parade use. Blade is full and appears unsharpened. Scabbard is original leather variety. The leather is solid but is not green, but more like black. I do not know if this is a “parade” thing or just age. A very unique piece. $125
9. Consignment ~ AA ~ PAL Mfg. Original 10” blade (not cut down) retains most of its finish. Grips appear like new. Proper 10” plastic sheath. $140
10. Consignment ~ AA ~ Vietnam Theater Knife made from Vietnam Era 1917 GEN-CUT shotgun bayonet. Blade has been shortened to 7”. Actually it makes a very nice knife. Can still be attached to a 1917 rifle or a trench shotgun. Modified M-8A1 sheath (Throat removed). First time that I have seen one of these converted. $165
11. Consignment ~ AA ~ Vietnam Theater/Trench Knife made using a Marbles 6” Jet Pilot blade and a P.X. 1918 handle (my opinion). Actually makes a very interesting piece. Very sharp blade and false edge. Original Marbles sheath. $600
12. Consignment ~ AA ~ Vietnam Theater made M-7 modification to an M-3. Reported that this was made in a Fire Support Base outside of Kontum in V.N. Blade has been reground to a very wicked clip point. M-8A1 sheath. I have only seen one other of these V.N. theater made knives. $350
13. Consignment ~ AA ~ WWII Era Ka-Bar UDT Knife. Blade appears to be plated. Some careful sharpening. Smooth handle, pinned pommel. U.S.N. plastic sheath. Knife is in about 98% condition. $325
14. Consignment ~ BB ~ F/S 2nd Pattern B-2 Wilkinson Sword. This knife is in exceptional condition with very little blackening missing at the pommel, less missing from the knurled handle. Blade is unsharpened with about 2 % of bluing missing from the very tip. No scratches or corrosion anywhere on the blade. Guard retains 100% blue finish with a couple of very small marks on one side. Black square chape and brown leather are 100% intact, as well as the elastic band. Nicest combo that I have ever seen. $600
15. Consignment ~ BB ~ Marbles 6” Jet Pilot Knife. Absolutely MINT with minty sheath, stone and leg tie-downs. Hard to upgrade this one unless you had the box. Silvey Vietnam Pg. 119. $1150
16. 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. $800

were commercial bayonets for the Hungarian AKs imported to the US. The
second variant has the cutter plate beveled at a higher plane than the face
of the scabbard. Both bayonet crossguard & scabbard blade stop will be
serial numbered. These were military issued ones. The improvement in the
cutter plate was adopted by several other countries. It provided more
clearance between blade and face of scabbard. This additional info provided
by our friend Fred Marut.-------Mint-----$50.00

knife for the War effort. The sturdy blade is 7" long and in excellent

grooves added. Also added was a thong hole and leather thong. Probably the
best part of the whole rig is the scabbard. They cut down a WWII USMC

re-sew it. They even cut down the brass throat.-----Neat Rig------$ 175.00

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.
