The following items are being sold by John Gibson  jrg@woh.rr.com

"Note: I Am Always Interested In Buying Your Collection"

 

1.  SOLD--------------------------------------------WWII M3 Utica---Mint In The Box----The blade is 6 3/4" long and unused.  It does have a scabbard mark, so it was put into a scabbard somewhere along the way. The guard is marked "US / M-3 / Utica". The handle is unused. The pommel has the ordnance mark. It comes with a mint M8A1 scabbard. The box is in excellent condition and has the Utica marking. The box shows an M8 scabbard, so this is probably one of the arsenal stored M3's. Ref: Cole III pg 97 #23-----$ 350.00

www.fightingknives.bizland.com/m3e.jpg

2. WWII John Ek Model 1----The blade is 7 1/4" long and unused---but it has been cleaned. I believe the lower 3/4 of the blade got wet and created surface rust and damaged the original sheath. The blade has been cleaned but you can still see the old light remains of the pin head pitting. At the right angle you can see  "John Ek Knife / Ha-------". You can tell the knife is unused. There are no sharpening marks or use to the blade and the handle is perfect-just sounds worse than what it is.  It comes with a snake skin pocket style sheath. Ref: Silvey WWII pg 119-----$ 575.00

83.  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 really are tinned under the blackening and the hilts are blackened brass that is reasonable well checkered.
