7.   Consignment ~ KL ~ Theater Made Dagger.  7 ” blade is double edged and (I think) unsharpened since it was made. 1 ” wide at the base.  Aluminum guard and pommel.  Handle is leather, aluminum and bakalite washers.  I doubt that this was the original scabbard because it seems to be a little short (or it also might be that communication between knife maker and scabbard maker was not the best!)  A very nice example none the less.    $175

8.   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.                                                                                                                 $165

12.       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. $695

14.       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 ” 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.                                                                       $775

15.       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.                   $695

23.       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

Many never before seen period photos with the knife being worn as well as the examination of the various makers by distinguishing differences in maker’s marks and font patterns.  (John's comment: Outstanding book for the beginning and advanced collector)

  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.
