Knife List #197

Updated 04/23/17

I guarantee all items to be authentic and as described. I give a seven (7) business day inspection period with any purchase. If you are not happy with the knife for any reason please return it for a full refund. No reasons needed, just contact me to let me know it is coming back. If you need to return a knife please ship it insured as we can not be responsible for the postal company chosen. I prefer payment by PayPal, https://www.paypal.me/KnifeBooks but will accept Cash, Money Order or Certified Check. I also accept personal checks but I have to wait 10 days or more to see if they clear if we have not done business before.

I will hold a knife for 7 days for you. If I do not hear from you then it goes back into the list. I will do a lay a way plan, contact me and we can make the arrangements.  

 

I will buy or consign your collection, always looking for quality US military knives of all eras.

   

1295.)    Fairbairn Ė Sykes as new and unused blued blade still in the wrap. This is the third model blade with a needle point tip and threaded tang rod. Never assembled into a knife, it is perfect. $100.00

 

 

 

 

1310.)    M4 Bayonet blade never used. Has full Parkerized coverage with some handling marks. Has correct 90 degree run out or back cut as some call it. Never sharpened. $60.00  

 

 

1313.)    Cloth type sheath for the M1917 bayonet. Like new with correct M1910 bent hook hanger. $20.00  
(I thought these were for the training bayonet but Gary Cunningham found they were for the M1917. The trainer does not fit!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

1315.)    USMC Bayonet 2000 as new still in factory fresh package. Here we have the rarest USMC bayonet in existence and in the original package! This bayonet stirred up quite a bit of controversy when it was selected by the Marines as the front line bayonet for the Corps. With lawsuits and holdups the Eickhorn company filed for bankruptcy and the bayonet was dropped from the selection. Still it was an official USMC bayonet for a very short time period. Required for an advanced USMC collection, most folks probably never heard of this bayonet. $600.00  (Finally replaced the photos with the correct color balance, my apologies to anyone who may have thought the red webbing was correct, it was not)

 

 

 

1431.)    Unknown maker on this World War Two knuckle knife. A similar knife is show in Wrights Book on page 76. The grips are undeniably made by the same person. This one has a custom made blade not from a bayonet. $600.00  Now $500.00! 

 

 

 

1432.)    Another unknown maker from a World War Two theatre knife. Handsome double edged stiletto is extremely well machined from a thick piece of stock and tapered expertly. The grip is leather with aluminum and brass and is all tight and correct. Come with custom fitted scabbard. A well executed set. $500.00  Now $400.00!

 

 

1441.)    Leather KA-BAR USMC  marked current type sheath like new, these are factory seconds so do have some minor imperfection in them but all will function and work well. $15.00

 

 

1442.)    Leather KA-BAR US ARMY  marked current type sheath like new, these are factory seconds so do have some minor imperfection in them but all will function and work well. $15.00

 

 

1443.)    Leather KA-BAR US NAVY  marked current type sheath like new, these are factory seconds so do have some minor imperfection in them but all will function and work well. $15.00

 

 

1445.)    Leather Marbles Jet Pilot knife sheath, these are left overs found in the factory circa 1999. They are a bit dirty but will clean nicely. Find another anywhere I dare you. $125.00.

 

 

 

1450.)     Lan-Cay Dutch contract M9 bayonet for Diemaco Co. With only 150 made this is a super rare piece, only the second one I have ever seen. Scabbard is a Lan-Cay made item but had to be made to the early Buck / Phrobis spec to be accepted for the Dutch Govt contract. Very few have ever made it to market, this one is like new mint. $750.00  

 

 

 

1452.)    M9 Ė FT /  USMC / LAN-CAY Field Trial bayonet made for the USMC as a trial before the new OKC was adopted. This model has saw teeth in the blade as the normal production blades do and has the screw on pommel unlike the other USMC products. One of only 125 produced in this configuration so needless to say it is super rare. $750.00  

 

 

1453.)    Buck commercial sales all black M9 bayonet. As new bayonet with the proper Buck marking and 1991 date code (+) on the blade. Fill out your Buck bayonet collection with the one you are missing. $425.00  

 

 

 

1455.)    Model 1909 Mauser bayonet manufactured in Argentina. Numbers matching bayonet and scabbard piece with fantastic markings. Deeply struck showing all the characters along with the crest. Known as an "EA" bayonet this one is clean with some scattered pitting and minor dents. $200.00  

 

 

 

1457.)    Lancay M9 bayonet, first contract piece but with the second contract blade. Pretty hard to find piece and this one is new. $500.00

 

 

1458.)    Lancay M9 bayonet, second contract piece like new covered in cosmoline, without a sheath. $70.00

 

 

1459.)    Phrobis International M9A1 bayonet in Desert Tan color. An improvement to the M9 bayonet that was never adopted by the military. This is when Phrobis moved manufacturing to Spain with the new name. Great markings, Like new still in the cosmoline. $450.00

 

 

1460.)    Eickhorn Bayonet 2000 with wire cutter, made for the USMC early contract bidding but was not selected. Very few were made in this configuration before Eickhorn went bankrupt. New condition. $250.00

 

 

1461.)    Marto M9 bayonet commercial sales piece not meant for sale in the US, European sales only. This is when Phrobis moved manufacturing to Spain and had Marto making the product. As new. $400.00  

 

 

1467.)    Case XX marked knife obtained by a Marine and customized with a multi colored wood grip and two EGAís in the grip. Come with a custom made leather sheath with a naked women carved in the front and USMC below it. Nice Marine Corps theatre piece. $500.00

 

 

1468.)    A unique knuckle knife in that the grip and knuckle bow are made from wood. Carved from some sort of dark hard wood with finger grooves cut in. The 7 inch blade is showing some age patina but still bright. The heavy leather scabbard is well made and sewn and riveted tight. $325.00

 

 

1469.)    This is a big one, 19 inches overall length with a 13 1/4 inch blade. The blade has some number markings on it from itís previous life and is marked Made in USA as well. Large wood grip painted a bright yellow. The leather sheath is riveted with large copper rivets and has the USN fouled anchor on the front. $300.00  

 

 

 

1470.)    Collins No 18 pattern machete owned by a flight crew member with his name and unit engraved in the blade. Excellent condition piece with beautiful green bone handles and perfect sheath. The No 13 sheath has more curve to it then any I have ever seen, really sticks out when you see it. $550.00

 

 

1472.)    Post war deaths head knife as shown in the Hughes and Jenkins book A Primer of Military Knives Part One. Know as the Middle East Commando Knives this one has the bolo blade like the Australian brush bayonet. Fine piece with a theatre made sheath of the same era. $600.00 (Comes with the two Hughes and Jenkins books as part of the deal)
