Out of print now for many years and increasingly difficult to find.
Camillus M3 Fighting Knife Camillus M3 Fighting Knife In a leather sheath. This is a post war knife that was made by Camillus in the 1980's. By all accounts it is a clone of its wartime brother except it only has one pin through the pommel. It is mint. Apart from a scratch to the leather the scabbard is in excellent tight condition. Hard to find in the UK
Chindit Fighting Knife This is a very unusual variation of the Chindit Fighting Knife. Clip bladed Bowie style blade which shows the central fuller associated with the Indian Para Knife,this combination is,in my experience very rare. The handle is black buffalo horn secured by two brass rivets and is very typically Indian in style. The scabbard is once again typical of the Chindit type. A rare combination that really deserves more research
Chindit Fighting Knife A nice example of a Chindit Fighting Knife,this is a wood handled example with grip scales secured to the tang with 3 rivets. Blade is clipped point Bowie with a very very sharp false edge! Scabbard is very typical of this type of knife and is ingrest condition.

Dahlgren Knife Bayonet The Dahlgren knife bayonet... (named after Captain John A. Dahlgren, U.S. Navy)... one of two bayonets associated with the Whitney Model 1861 Percussion Navy ("Plymouth") .69 caliber Rifle. The Whitney "Plymouth" rifle, named after the U.S.S. PLYMOUTH, a naval ordnance testing ship which had been built under Dahlgren's supervision, has the distinction of being the only U.S. contract arm to be originally rifled in .69 caliber. The first Knife Bladed bayonet is considered to be the Model 1861 for the Plymouth / Whitneyville rifle. It is perhaps better known by its nickname the Dahlgren Bowie Bayonet, named for it inventor Admiral John A. Dahlgren. Many articles have been written about the Dahlgren bayonet but what is most intriguing are the actual letters from the Admiral himself regarding its design and use. As we know the basic use of a bayonet is mounted to the end of a rifle or musket. To Dahlgren's thinking this is not the proper use of his newly invented arm. It should be known that Admiral Dahlgren was in command of several Navy ships and knew first hand what close quarters fighting was about. With this in mind perhaps we can relate to the admirals thought when he wrote that the bayonet was best used in the hand not mounted on the end of the rifle it was designed for. It is also interesting to note that the 1861 rifle already had a sword bayonet designed for it at the time of Dahlgren's invention of the new bayonet. In Dahlgren's own words he called it the "most useless thing in the world except at the end of a musket." Perhaps this explains why most Dahlgren bayonets do NOT fit the Model 1861 rifle. They were meant to but they were also designed to be used as a close quarters fighting weapon in a sailors or marines hand. The Admiral invented a bayonet because a knife would not be sanctioned by the Ordnance Board. But being the clever fellow he was the bayonet did not really have to fit the rifle either.

Pommel number 2. Early drop forged hand finished blade of full length. Two blade types are known to exist in the etched production,polished and blued,this one is the polished type. This knife has been used but it's still in overall great condition. The etches are clear. The scabbard is the correct pattern for the knife and has an elongated belt loop,which looks like it's been field modified by unpicking the stitching and reattaching it further down its length,not seen that one before. A very rare knife.

First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife. Very near to mint, the blade is not messed with in any way. Both etched panels are perfect as the day they were done. Handle has the deep crisp knurling,some of the best I’ve seen in a First Pattern. Pommel nut is tight and displays the vice marks as we like to see. Correct scabbard which shows light carry wear around the belt loop area, which only adds to the fact this was a carried knife. All stitching is tight and the Newey popper works perfectly. This is a near mint knife that is almost impossible to upgrade. Please contact me regarding this knife if you are interested.
First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife As near to mint as I’ve seen in a long time. Vert slight age related patina here and there but for a carried knife it’s superb. Tight knife correct scabbard
First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife that is every inch an issue and combat used knife,an early knife with a more pronounced S shaped guard, this knife was more than likely produced near the end of the first run of these Knives. Both etches are clearly visible,the blade shows age patina but the blade profile is as it should be. Handle is great and tight to the guard. The scabbard is correct but cut down. Knife comes with provenance. If you are interested in this knife please contact me to discuss it.
First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife A very nice First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife that shows slight sharpening,this knife is a used one,not an issue and return piece. It's been used on Operstions and adapted by its user. As I say some light sharpening on the blade,however the etchings remain nice and clear with only slight darkened spots. The hand drawn blade is full length 175 mm. The handle and cross guard are tight and in top class condition. Pommel nut shows opposite vice jaw marks as we would expect to see. The scabbard is the correct pattern which has been adapted so that the top of the scabbard can be folded over the pommel nut,allowing the newey snap to be left undone,therefore allowing a quiet withdrawal of the knife. The two remaining wings have been pierced to allow the knife to be fastened by a leather lace. The slot cut into the top also allows it to be buttoned into the Airborne battle dress knife pocket. This is a very pleasing example of a been there been used knife.
First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife A very good example of an issued been there First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife. Blade is full length and shows no sharpening. Both etched panels are clear if slightly worn. The guard is tight and pommel nut is correct an also tight. Overall the knife itself is an excellent piece. The scabbard is the correct pattern and has been adapted period by having the snap cut off and the top slotted to allow it to be fastened to the button in the SF battle dress knife pocket. As with a lot of knife pocket scabbards we see that the top most outer edges get cut as the knife is put away “blind”. It’s a combat used piece so I’d expect it not to be mint. That being said it is an excellent piece. I guarantee my knives 100% so if you’re not happy I’ll gladly refund.
FR693 Marked Mid War Third Pattern FS A rare example of the Admiralty Order FR693 Marked Mid War Third Pattern FS Knife, complete with its matching FR 271 scabbard. The Admiralty Order came out in 1964 and Wilkinson made 100 Knives which were stamped on the underside of the guard, these were boxed and sent off. No further Knives were made as the rest of the Order was simply filled with WW2 Knives that were in WD stores, these,like this mint example were stamped on the pommel area and stored away. The scabbards were stamped to the rear of the leather patch securing the elastic. As I say this knife is a Mid War example with a hand drawn blade and a pommel number 3. Blade is an immaculate 6 7/8” Long. All nice and tight. Scabbard is the flat chape Pattern.
Hitler Youth Knife By Grawiso Hitler Youth Knife By Grawiso, early knife without motto. Diamond is fitted nicely and wiggles as it should. No cracks in handle and in overall very good condition. Correct scabbard and belt loop and retaining strap in great order.
Hook Quilon p1907 By Enfield Hook Quilon p1907 By Enfield. Regimentally marked to the Seaforths and a rare unit to find on any bayonet let alone a very near mint hooked Quilon example. Blade is full length and not sharpened and shows only runner marks from the scabbard retainer. If I was massively critical there is a couple of tiny black spots near the tip that are pin head size. Made in May 1905 at Enfield and has the rare V1 inspectors mark. Grip scales are walnut and I’d describe as mint. Guard and pommel are original blued condition and the Unit mark is deeply stamped. The scabbard is dated ‘09 and is early non rivet Pattern. This is almost impossible to upgrade. If you need any other questions answered regards this then please feel free to contact me by telephone
Kukri Kukri that I believe dates around 1920 but I’m fully open to advice on that. A superb knife in itself but what really makes this piece is its tool kit, pens,hammer,dividers,pliers,ear pic,leather strap,corkscrew etc. Also in the small pouch is a Royal Navy Serviceman’s final pay notice. His name is on the notice.

Middle East Commando Knife The Middle East Commando Knife was made in the Bazaars of Cairo at the request of Col. GAD Young and Lt. Col Rose and were used by 50,51 & 52 Commando in Crete and elsewhere in the Far East. The handle based on a deaths head is cast brass and the blade is braised and spot welded into the handle. The much needed dent is there where the blade meets the handle which helps to confirm this is not a copy. The scabbard is correct for the knife. The blade shows age related spotting but no pitting. A very rare and original knife Please contact me if you are interested in this knife before you purchase it

No 5 Bayonet No5 bayonet for the Jungle Carbine,this also fits the Sterling SMG. Made by Wilkinson and double stamped with Wilkinson and their WD code S294 which indicates to me a 1945 produced bayonet,so a scarce chance to get a wartime No5. The fact this has rounded wood grip scales also evidences it as being a 1945 dated bayonet has survived being updated and grips replaced with angular ones.
No5 Bayonet By Poole No5 Bayonet By Poole Dated 1946. Made for the Jungle Carbine and later refurbished to fit the Sterling SMG. This example is in mint condition and impossible to update. Poole is one of the scarcer makers to find.

Blade shows age related wear but is full length and not sharpened, a real issue knife this one, not a private purchase. /|56 Marked to the guard makes this a scarce knife. Scabbard is correct, looks like the chape got caught in a door! Nice button slot cut into the rear of the scabbard too, which evidenced my thoughts on this being a genuine carried in action piece.
Second Pattern /|B Marked Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife A mint and unique Second Pattern /|B Marked Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife. Blade,handle and pommel nut are in top class condition. The guard is marked /|B so it's a Wilkinson made knife. The scabbard has been adapted by the Owner during WW2 with the addition of Newey poppers as seen on Denison Smocks in order to fix it to a piece of personal kit. What that kit is,is open to discussion but I've not seen one like it in 46 years of collecting these knives. A superb example.

A rare knife to find,the Masonic etched was only ever etched on one side.
Servicing Commando Knife Servicing Commando Knife In a FS sheath. A genuine Servicing Commando Knife housed in a a FS knife sheath,a very unusual pairing but from the fit and the aged crease at the top of the sheath I think a very genuine paring. The very interesting thing about this knife is the lettering inscribed in the bone pommel. The initials A R are more than likely the Servicing Commando's initials. Also carved is CATFOSS, which was a RAF training air base during WW2 in East Yorkshire near to Hornsea. The markings have worn off the knife but it is undoubtedly as described. A very unique knife
Taiwanese M1 Bayonet Taiwanese M1 Bayonet In stunning condition. Throats of scabbard has been painted but that's par for the course with these.

High domed pommel nut and the machine finished blade date it to 1944-1945. Correct pattern scabbard for the knife, elastic is present but snapped. Guard marked England but in tiny letters,smaller than I’m used to seeing. Overall a very hard knife and scabbard to upgrade.

Mould number4 on this transitional Third Pattern,it's got an early third guard and pommel nut but a machine finished blade. It has been shortened to fit the scabbard and I believe period done to demonstrate the Hunting Scabbard. The scabbards were not adopted therefore are a rare item themselves. The knife is near mint,having as I say been shortened period,factory done to fit in the scabbard. First knife I've ever seen in a scabbard,having seen two previous Hunting Scabbards 30 years ago.
