UTILITY KNIVES + OTHER KNIVES FOR SALE -

VAUGH NEELY. USA. "SURVIVAL KNIFE".

This Colorado Knifemaker has been making knives for sometime now, having been one of the original trio who made up Timberline Knives, along with founder Jim Hardenbrook - who sadly died in a hunting accident - with the other maker being Bill Sanders. (Please note that these Custom Knifemakers were in no way connected with the current range of Factory knives using that same name ). Both Bill and Vaugh continue to make knives and Vaugh has also been making knives for the 'resurrected' Lile Knives - famous for the 'First Blood' Rambo knife made by Jimmy Lile when he was still alive. In fact, there are striking similarities between that knife and this one by Vaugh. ( if you ordered a 'First Blood' from Lile Knives - made by Vaugh - it would cost you in the region of $2000 ! ). This knife contains a survival kit in the hollow handle and comes complete with a brown leather sheath with a sharpening stone on the back ( neat idea ! ). Blade: 5-3/4". Oal: 11".

Pre-owned in nr. mint cond.  £475 inc. UK p&p

SOLD WINTERHAWK CUSTOM KNIVES. USA. "HUNTER-SKINNER".

One of the most interesting knives I have come across - a real "blast from the past" with a great provenance! Made in 1987 by a William P. Made who traded under the name "Winterhawk, Ltd" in Virginia. It would appear that this particular knife was made to be included in that year's Gun World Annual as it includes a letter to Roger Combs (the Editor) stating all the specifications, including the white "brain tanned" Buckskin sheath.

This knife is a wonderful view through a window to a time when Custom Knives were still in their infancy and will appeal to anyone who loves that period or as a part of a 'timeline' in a collection. Mirror finished 440c steel ( THE steel of that time ) and a handle of genuine Tourquoise ( from the Copper Head Tourquoise Mine ! ) and imitation black & white pearl inlays.

Blade: 3-1/2". Oal: 8"

Mint, unused condition.  £175 inc. UK p&p

SOLD PETER BAUCHOP. South Africa. "COMBAT MACHETE".

Only two examples made ! ( this is Numbered 02 ).

Blade: 12". Oal: 17". Complete with original brown leather sheath. Mint unused condition.

GEORGE BUTLER & Co. Sheffield. "HAM/SALMON SLICER".

A glorious find from the 1960'/70's this is the first time I have seen a Ham ( or Salmon ) slicer complete with a sheath ! Usually these knives are in a presentation box, so it would be interesting to know whether a sheath was an option ? Whatever, this is a rare beast and both knife and sheath are as unused as the day they were made. Blade: 12".

Sambar stag handle.

Mint condition. £75 inc. UK p&p

FALLKNIVEN. SWEDEN. "SK6 KRUT".

A super high quality knife from Fallkniven - as all their knives are - and this would make a great user or great Collector piece. Made from laminated Cobolt steel, this is a 'top of the range' knife and offered at a huge saving on the RRP of £580. Blade:16cm Oal: 28cm.

PRE-OWNED, MINT & UNUSED. New price £390 inc. UK p&p

R&R MIDDLETON. SHEFFIELD. "CAMP/SURVIVAL KNIFE".

An early knife by the Middleton Brothers, when they still had a workshop - and a pleasant change from their Bowies. Based on the MOD Survival knife, this is in excellent condition, although the blade shows light scratches. Blade: 7". Oal:12".No sheath, unfortunately.

Priced to sell - £125 inc. UK p&p

 

DOZIER KNIVES. USA. "PROFESSIONAL GUIDES KNIFE".

1970's Westinghouse micarta +D2 steel.

£350 inc. UK p&p

CHRONOS. POLAND. "WILDERNESS SET".

A wonderful set from Dawid that would be a great choice to tackle any/all chores that living in the Wilderness - or the Great Outdoors - could throw at you. The large Camp knife has wonderful ergonomics to "chop" or baton through wood, whilst the smaller Field knife would take care of more 'mundane' chores. The steel has been chosed for the specific tasks, with the Camp Knife in Elmax for it's toughness and the 'field' knife in M390 for sharpness and edge holding. Handled in black G10, with thick bright red liners for added visibility and both nestled snugly in Dawid reknowned kydex sheaths.

Camp - Blade: 6-1/2". Oal: 11-1/2". Field - Blade: 4" Oal: 9"

Brand new from Maker. £795 inc. UK p&p.

A chance to acquire an example of these world renowned knives from Randall Made, Orlando - the knives that started the whole custom knife genre !

AL MAR KNIVES. USA. please email for details

SOLD 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".

AL MAR USA

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'. 

CRKnives USA

SOLD CHRIS REEVE. "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.

CHARLES OCHS. USA

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.

AL MAR USA

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). 

PUMA GERMANY

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 ) 

ALAN WOOD UK

 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.

ALAN WOOD UK

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. 

PUMA GERMANY

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.  

BK&T USA

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 ! ).
