I like collecting WW II era U.S. and German Military knives.

I would like to see any knives others here might have in their collection.

Here is an unused WWII era Camillus, USMC fighting knife with scabbard.


Let`s see your old military knives ::tu::

Here's an old PAL with a history. It went through the Pacific "Island Campaigns" with a SEABEE. It's just like he left it. It is one SHARP SOB!

It`s in great condition and with the original sheath, these are usually missing.

This thread also includes military folding pocket knives ::nod::

So let`s see them military knives of all kinds ::tu::

Thanks D.
Here's a First Special Forces pocket knife that belonged to my wife's uncle. He was killed by a booby trapped pistol near the end of 44 in France. We're still trying to figure out what outfit he was with.

In case any body is wondering, the phillips screwdriver was used to tighten their ski bindings.

Yes, I did. I only wish there was some sort of mark. It is definite though it will fit a small frame 5 inch revolver. I don't remember the Police ever wearing an apparatus that would accept a web belt hanger. I will look that thread up and post the url to here also.

Very hard to find those Willie! ::drool:: :D

I know where there is a Miller gravity rope knife with the blade etched "U.S. Navy", One of your "Holy Grail" Knives.

Only problem is the guy want`s $2,800 for it :shock: :o :roll: ::dang:: ::disgust:: ::tear::

:lol:

Is that all???? :roll:

The way things are in my world right now, if they were selling tugboats for 100 bucks a piece, I'd have to just stand on the levy with my hands in my pockets and say, "DAMN that's cheap!" 8)
