KNIFE SALES

Note that in order to comply with UK law I will only sell knives to persons over 18.   If you are a new customer or are otherwise unknown to me please do not be offended if I ask for proof of age.


​​​As a collector myself I know that finances can at times be tight and we may not always be able to buy what we want.    However I have had a couple of instances recently where I have gone to the trouble of getting postage  and insurance quotes and the deal struck with payment promised.  Only for the potential buyer to back out at the very last minute and in one instance I had in the meantime told a regular customer that the piece had sold.   I am always happy to co-operate and work with serious buyers if for more expensive items a payment plan is in order.    

 It is also worth mentioning for overseas buyers (i.e. outside of the EU) that I will work with you in terms of customs forms and value.   Items will always be sent by tracked a signed for, where it is available for your country.  However note that insurance can be very expensive but if you choose not to take it or wish it at a low value it would be at your risk.​​​As a collector myself I know that finances can at times be tight and we may not always be able to buy what we want.    However I have had a couple of instances recently where I have gone to the trouble of getting postage  and insurance quotes and the deal struck with payment promised.  Only for the potential buyer to back out at the very last minute and in one instance I had in the meantime told a regular customer that the piece had sold.   I am always happy to co-operate and work with serious buyers if for more expensive items a payment plan is in order.

 ​Rare French WW2 Commando Beret Badge for the 1st FM Commando and not to be mistakken for the post WW2 badge of a similar design.    It was originally thought that these were made for the film the Longest Day but it has been reported by Peter Taylor author of Allied Special Forces Insignia 1939-1948 that Gaunt who supplied the the badges for the film had these in stock from WW2.    Either way this is a scarce badge.  REDUCED TO £125 including UK postage.

Original 1942 dated 2nd Pattern F-S drawing.

 

I am lucky enough to own the original Wilkinson tracing drawing of the 2nd Pattern F-S produced in 1942.    Some years ago I did a limited number of reprints of this drawing but since then it has been filed away.    If there is sufficient interest I will look to redo the reprints at full size.   The size being 23.5 inches by 33 inches.      A copy of the drawing is shown below.   Price including UK postage will be £18. Prices for overseas vary depending on USA, Australia, Europe. will get postage once I know your location.

  VIETNAM SOG MARINE  RECON KNIFE


Rare, especially this side of the Atlantic is this Vietnam period SOG Marine Recon knife.  This piece is unmarked but other examples are marked KIFFE, who were well known for supplying SOG and other special forces knives during VIetnam war.   These knives are well referenced in Tom Clinton's Knives of the US Special Forces, and Mike Silvey's book on VIetnam knives.    The knife is in well used condition with surface staining and scratches on the blade.  The leather washer grip is fully intact and tight.  The sheath is well worn but is unusual in that it does not comply with those shown by Clinton or Silvey  and the keeper strap is missing.    Interesting the sheath is designed for left hand carry whereas those shown in the references are designed for right hand side carry.   £250 incl UK postage.  NOW £225























-------------------------------------------

Chindit bowie with the larger blade (see British and Commonwealth Military Knives plate 493).    The blade is full with one small area of pitting on one side and some surface staining, complete with sheath.  This is nice example  of a Chindit bowie and the blade is amazingly sharp for its age. £485 incl UK postage

Very rare Auxiliary Unit (Britains resistance Army) lapel badge.   £250 incl UK postage
