The following items are being sold by Gary Ruleford firstname.lastname@example.org
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 ~ 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
2. 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

4. 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
5. 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

8. 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

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.
