USA Maker. "Mule Deer- Damascus".
I took this knife in as part of a collection I bought so know little about it. I am pretty certain that it is American made because of the Mule Deer antler handle. The forged damascus "Double Edge" blade is well made, with a 'random' pattern. Part stacked leather handle with brass fittings. All in all, a nice little knife for the money.

CHRIS REEVES KNIVES : "NEIL ROBERTS WARRIOR KNIFE".
Named after Navy Seal, Neil Roberts, who was killed in action in Afganistan in 2002, this knife is a fitting tribute. Designed by noted knifemaker/designer William Harsey, this is a very impressive looking knife which is no longer available from CRK. Unfortunately, there is no box or paperwork with this particular knife but that is ofset by the fact that the knife is in unused condition and complete with two sheaths ( the black leather shows signs of being worn ). Blade : 6.25". Oal : 11.5". Commission sale - £475. New price £425 inc UK p&p
SOLD. AL MAR KNIVES. USA. details to follow.
A.G. RUSSELL. USA. "FIELD KNIFE 2"
A.G. Russell is a "living legend" in the world of knives, having been around since the beginning of Custom Knives in the 1970's. It would take too long to list all his achievements but suffice to say that his involvement in any knife project guarantees quality ! This knife is his "Field Knife 2" and is his concept of a knife for US troops to use in the field - which quickly became an immediate success. Despite being 'radical' looking with a very obvious 'fuller' or 'blood groove' the knife would serve any Sportsman or Outdoorsman equally as well as a Serviceman. I notice that the choil also has a 'cut-out' for a ferro rod, which is a nice touch. Complete with a nylon sheath.
Blade: 7" stainless steel. Oal: 12". Mint condition. £160 inc. UK p&p
PUMA. W.GERMANY. "NICKER"- 1971 vintage. £225 inc. UK p&p

MIKE LAMPREY "INTEGRAL". please email for details.
ALAN WOOD "Model 12-OFFICER" A not often seen model by Alan, this is what he has to say about it in his Catalogue. no5 -" Very popular concealment 'Boot Knife' which has been well received by both users and collectors. Unique blade is 'triple ground' and is shown in right handed form. Design is light, strong and comfortable with the flat handle fitting the palm for a secure grip to maximise length". Blade:3 3/4". Oal:8 1/4". Complete with two sheaths.
Near Mint Cond. £325 inc. UK p&p
MIKE MALOSH "SCALPER". Hand forged 01 carbon steel in a "Vintage" style, Mikes work is much sought after in the States and this excellent example of his work shows why.
Excellent work. Complete with Mosher made sheath.
Mint condition - - AS NEW £285 inc UK p&p
SOLD LOFTY WISEMAN "SURVIVAL TOOL" by OAKWOOD SPORT & SURVIVAL LTD.
SOLD AL MAR KNIVES "SERE". A superb example of this now discontinued 1980's "SERE", complete with the USA Special Forces (Green Berets) motto on the guard. Designed by the late great Al Mar who, after working as Head Designer for Gerber, left and set up his own company. Using his contacts in Japan, from his time with Gerber, he created top quality knives of his own unique design, no doubt with input from his actual experience as a "Green Beret" in Vietnam.
Blade:6" Oal:10 1/2". With black leather sheath. This knife is out of a Collection and is 'AS NEW'.
SOLD ALAN WOOD "KEW". The first time I have had one of these models by Alan and, hopefully, not the last. A very ergonomic shape - almost 'organic' in the way it fits into the hand and with an upswept cutting edge but a 'modified wharnecliff' point, I feel this blade could handle a multitude of tasks ! The steel is Premium RWL34 stainless with a handle of Pere David antler (with the 'bark' ground off) set off with red liners. Nickel silver fittings.
Oal: 7". Blade: 3". Complete with brown leather pouch sheath.
Brand new from Alan.
SOLD DOZIER KNIVES "KS-7,WILDERNESS" Bob Dozier can truly be called a Legend in the knifemaking world, having been involved since the very early days (working with A.G. Russell). Now, firmly established as one of America's premier makers, he is renowned for his no-nonsense style of working knives and his mastering of D2 tool steel to get the absolutely best performance from it (he is known as Dr.D2). The Wilderness is designed, with input from Steven Dick - a chap who I greatly respect - to be the one knife that could 'do it all' in a backcountry camping trip. This model is much sought after in the States, partly due to Bob's 3 year waiting list ! Blade:5". Oal:9 7/8".
Pre-owned but in mint cond.
SOLD CHRIS REEVES "PROJECT 1". As I'm sure is well known, these hollow handled knives are machined from a solid billet of A2 steel - a method that took the Knife World by storm when Chris arrived on the scene and one that finally dispelled any fears of weakness between the handle joint and blade on this type of Survival knife. What may not be so well known is that Chris has now discontinued the whole range of 'one piece' knives and as such, these will become more collectable - particularly mint examples like this. This is the non-serrated Project 1 version, complete with sheath, paperwork and box (which has a few 'creases' but no rips). Blade is 7 1/2". Oal is 12 1/2". Mint, unused.
SOLD OX FORGE "SPECIAL OPS BOWIE". A rare chance to own a superb hand forged Fighter/Utility by Mastersmith Charles Ochs, a guy who has been around a while and earned himself an enviable reputation as a Top Maker specialising in 52100 'ball bearing' steel (and damascus). Charles has also worked very closely with the US Navy Seals & Special Forces and his "Special Ops Bowie" is a very desirable knife (he also makes a more basic, simpler, more affordable version to cope with the demand for this model). Charles quotes a 2 year waiting list for this stunning knife. Blade length 8". Oal 13". Mint, as new cond.
SOLD ALAN WOOD " EXPEDITION & BALLARD"
This is the first time I have had one of Alan's Expedition models to sell - and I am impressed ! This is a knife that certainly lives up to its name and would be a definite asset on any such trip - or in the case of most of us: a camping trip, wilderness or otherwise. Beautifully made with a 6" flat ground blade (most likely 12c27 s/s) and a lovely handle of "antique ivory" micarta set off by red liners, giving an oal of 11" (this is a handful of a knife ! ). This knife has come out of a collection although the sheath has picked up a few light marks (the sheath is a "dangler type" and is made to be worn on the left hand side). Mint condition
SOLD BALLARD (bottom knife, shown with its sheath)
SOLD AL MAR "DESERT STORM - COMBAT" A stunning knife by Al Mar knives ! I believe this model is now discontinued and as such will become harder to get - and you would not get one in better condition than this one. This is a serious knife that could be taken "in harms way" - or simply be admired in a collection. The blade bears the markings of Operation Desert Storm - Jan 1991.
Spec: 8" Blade. Oal:13 1/2". Brass guard, leather stacked handle with s/s pommel. Complete with sheath (which shows very light handling marks).
SOLD PUMA " AUTO MESSER" model. This is the famous "White Hunter" sold as a "Car Knife" for the motorist - and a rarely seen version. Very much like the WH, it was intended for use as a general camp knife for picnics, etc. It also came with an option for a special plastic scabbard for fitting inside the car for "an emergency: to smash windows, to cut open the roof, to release oneself in case of accident or fire or in deep water".
Apart from the Rio Jacaranda wood handle, it is identical to it's more recognised big brother, even having the same leather sheath. Made in 1978. Quality piece of kit ! Mint, unused cond. (now with original box/paperwork )
SOLD Alan Wood "SHORTY" model. This is only the second time I have had one of these cracking little knives to sell. At first glance, it appears too small to be practical but believe me, after handling this knife it appears capable of performing tasks far in excess of it's size. Alan is not only a superb knife maker but also a great knife designer ! Oal of 6" and a 2 1/4" blade of 12c27. White Tufnol with nickel silver fitting and a typically top class leather sheath complete the package. Brand new from Alan.
SOLD ALAN WOOD "WOODS WALKER". One of the nicest versions I have seen from Alan ! Gorgeous Odin's Eye pattern damasteel blade with a beautiful handle of Ringed Gingee ( which I believe is an Australian wood ) set off with a blue fibre liner and to complete the package, a textured s/s bolster. 4" blade and oal of 8 1/4". Complete with sheath and guarantee. Brand new from Alan.
SOLD PUMA "BOWIE - 6376". This is the larger bladed version with an 8" blade and with the inscription in Gold lettering ! A truly stunning knife with possibly the best Sambar stag I've seen on a Puma (much, much nicer than my pic shows). I would assume this was made as a Collectors piece as it seems just too nice to use. Dating from 1973, this knife is 99% mint condition - quite incredible for a 40 year old carbon steel knife. These larger Bowies are rarely seen and this is a great chance to aquire one ( you will not see a better one ! ). Mint condition.
SOLD GERBER LMF. A long discontinued model by Gerber, made when the "Rambo" craze was in full swing ! Unlike a lot of makers versions, this one by Gerber received some glowing reports. If you are looking to fill a void in a collection or just want to try one out, this fits the bill. Overall in very good condition as it shows light signs of sharpening and the usual handling marks for its age, 6" blade and oal 10 3/4". Comes with original sheath but no box.
SOLD PUMA Germany. ALASKAN model. Made in 1980, this now discontinued model is one of Puma's least seen offerings and would either fit nicely in a collection or make a great user. The 5 1/2" blade of stainless steel has never been used or sharpened and the whole knife is in near mint condition. With an oal of 10 1/2", it is an impressive looking knife! Complete with original sheath but, unfortunately, no box.
SOLD Becker Knife & Tool. BRUTE. The BK&T range of knives was first introduced in 1986 and have since obtained a cult following in the USA. Designed by Founder and Owner Ethan Becker, an avid outdoorsman ( and cook ), this range of knives has been made by several companies for Ethan and this particular model was made by Camillus before they closed their business ( they also made the superb "Carbon V" steel for Cold Steel ). Currently, BK&T knives are made by Kabar although this paticular model may have been discontinued ? This is what the sales brochure has to say about the BRUTE - "The Brute is a formidable knife whose graceful 9 1/2" recurve blade will handle almost any camp and field chore you can throw at it. The Brute excels at chopping and is at home in the short machete mode as well. The dedicated anvil adds the perfect forward weight and acts as a hammerhead in a pinch." Specs: blade 1/4" thick, 9 1/2" long. Oal 15" weight 22 ounces. This knife is as mint as the day it was made. Complete with the original box ( and receipt from 2002 ! ).
