SOLD MALCBERRY LTD. UK.  "Model 006 - STALKER".

MALCBERRY LIMITED. UK.  "THE 1897 SERIES".

These Sheffield knives are now becoming impossible to find, so it is a rare opportunity to buy one of the knives that have become 'Legendary'.

Made in the mid/late 1970's and exclusively for the mail order company Malcberry Limited in Kent, these knives were made from a stock of high carbon Sheffield steel that was forged/crucibled in 1897, hence the name. Hand forged by Stuart Truelove, the blades were then handed over to Stuart Mitchell snr. (of Pat Mitchell Knives fame) to be finished.

From my research, I would summise that after a time Stuart Mitchell took over the making completely, as the later knives do not have Truelove stamped on them and the 1897 logo - now etched - appears very similar in style to the logo he used on the Monarch Series knives that he made.

SOLD ALAN WOOD. "DELUXE MINI-HUNTER".

Possibly the nicest 'Mini-Hunter I have seen from Alan. Handled in gorgeous Desert Ironwood on red liners, and set off with mosaic pins. The steel is Premium RWL-34 stainless and Alan has completed the package with a very nice 'basketweave' brown leather sheath. Blade:2-1/2 inches. Oal:6-1/3 inches. Forget the Casstrom version - this is the real deal ! Brand new from Maker. 

ALAN WOOD. "BLACK FOREST".

Superb work from Alan, complete with matching ceramic rod.

Brand new from Maker. £525 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD MAUSER. GERMANY. "SPORTSMAN".

Although obviously a folder, I felt this knife belonged in this section as this model is particularly popular with Stalkers - and Outdoor folk in general. Made by Victorinox (so the top quality is guaranteed) and long discontinued, this is a rare opportunity to acquire this sought after knife in unused condition - and with its original box and guarantee booklet, which is nearly always missing, and with the saw guard still attached (again, quite often missing). Main blade: 3-1/4 inches. Closed: 4-1/4 inches. Excellent, unused condition. £95 inc. UK p&p.

Brand new from Maker. £425 inc. UK p&p.

EMBERLEAF KNIVES. "CAEL: AR-v1".

Possibly Dean and Joel's 'Signature' design, this knife has won high praise for use in the field by many stalkers, professional and alike. This particular knife was crafted in August 2018 but shows virtually little to no signs of use. Made from AEB-L steel with a handle of stabilised blue Poplar, giving that nice 'Pride of Ownership' feeling. Complete with its original sheath, paperwork, box etc. (the box shows a few light storage marks )  Near Mint condition. NEW PRICE: £350 inc. UK p&p.

Super, hard to come by Set from Alan. Please email for details.

GIL HIBBEN KNIVES. "A.P.H.A. SEMI-SKINNER.

A now discontinued model bearing the logo of the Alaska Professional Hunters Association, this is an extremely well made knife for those who like a semi-skinner with a slightly deeper belly. Well suited to the larger species. S/steel blade and guard (which is well fitted) and a comfortable black micarta handle, with red liners. Blade: 4-1/2 inches. Oal: 9 inches.

Complete with a black leather sheath with button snap. This knife was made in Taiwan, unlike the current examples which are made in China.

Mint, unused condition. NEW PRICE: £95 inc. UK p&p.

M.NIETO. SPAIN. "TORO GUT-HOOK HUNTER"

A lovely knife for those who have an affinity for gut-hooks. Very well made but at a price point that wouldn't cause sleepless nights if inadvertently lost in the field. Blade; 4-1/4 inches. Oal: 7-3/4 inches.

Brand new and unused. NEW PRICE: £30 inc. UK p&p.

A brand new model from Alan ! His variation of the classic Grohmann/D.H.Russell Belt Knife, this combines the handle shape with a  'semi-skinner' blade (as opposed to the leaf shape of the original) that raises the point and give more belly for skinning. The steel is 12c27, with a brushed finish and the handle is nicely figured Spalted Beech with red liners. Fittings are bronze with a central mosaic pin. Blade: 3-1/2 inches. Oal: 8-1/2 inches.

GERBER LEGENDARY BLADES. USA. "Model A475 -ARMORHIDE SERIES".

Released from my own collection, this particular knife was obviously part of the equipment taken on an African Safari by USA Gunmakers, Thompson Centre in 1976. Discontinued in the late 1980's, these Armourhide knives (which refers to the handle covering - a Gerber speciality) won rave reviews in use due to their use of 'High Speed Tool Steel' blades at Rc. 60-62, with an industrial hard-chrome plating. Made when Pete Gerber was still running the firm and designed by the legendary Al Mar when he was head designer for Gerber, before setting up making knives in his own name. Blade: 4-1/2" (2.25mm thick). Oal: 9-1/2". Complete with original brown leather sheath.

Mint, unused condition. £325 inc. UK p&p.

EDF KNIVES. The Netherlands. "HUNTER"

Please email for details. NEW PRICE: £225 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD PAT MITCHELL KNIVES. "Sportsman Collection - Model 574".

Described in their catalogue as  - "A rugged compact knife for hunting and field use, it will prove itself invaluable for all sportsmen".

Since the demise of Pat Mitchell Knives due to the passing of both Stuart Snr. (who actually made the knives) and his wife, Pat (who ran the business and whom it was named after) these knives have become sought after by Collectors and also those looking for a very good quality Handmade Sheffield knife - as opposed to one made in the Far East !

These knives keep a superb edge due to the SF77 high carbon stainless steel used by Stuart Snr. This particular knife is handled in a very attractive wood laminate, which was one of the handle options offered, and a brass guard and pins. The original sheath is missing but the knife comes with a high quality sheath similar to the original style. This is, without doubt, the best quality Pat Mitchell knife I have seen since their passing and whoever buys this will not be disappointed !  

Blade: 4-1/4". Oal: 9".   As New condition. 

HOCHSTIEN. HUNGARY. "ENGRAVED HUNTER".

NEW PRICE: £300 inc. UK p&p.

Complete guide to HUNTING KNIVES. by Durwood Hollis. Details in BOOKS. Excellent cond. £10 inc. UK p&p

HOCHSTEIN. HUNGARY. "ENGRAVED HUNTER".

As a knife that was part of a collection I recently bought, I have to confess that I know very little about this maker - other than he certainly knows how to craft a knife ! Hafted in Wild Boar tusk and with stunning scroll work on both sides of the blade, this knife is very European in flavour but epitomizes 'Pride of Ownership'. The s/steel guard is very well fitted and if this knife does not sell, I could well be tempted to keep it for my own use. Complete with original 'deep seated' brown leather pouch sheath. Blade:85mm Oal:185mm. 

Excellent, unused condition. NEW PRICE: £300 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD ALAN WOOD. "RABBIT".
