UTILITY KNIVES + OTHER KNIVES FOR SALE -
GIOCOMO SADDI. SARDINIA. "PATTADESE".
The typical knife of Sardinia, this version is made by local Sinnai cutler, Pier Giocomo Saddi, who has handled this particular example in dyed Giraffe bone. The bolsters are stamped with a symbol of a 'Lapwing' - a traditional decorative feature meaning 'good omen'. Complete with original leather sheath. Blade: 4.25 inches. Oal: 8.75 inches.
Mint, unused condition. £125 inc. UK p&p
SOLD KANETSUNE. SEKI. JAPAN. "SHINOBI". (Discontinued)
A now discontinued knife of excellent quality and striking apearance. The blade is 'San Mai' (3 layers) with a core of Hitachi Aogami 'Blue steel' at a hardness of 64c hrc ! The outer layers are 'Brut de Forge' carbon
Damascus, with the Makers mark stamped on one side. The guard and buttcap are n/silver and the handle is classic Japanese, with a cord wrap over genuine Sharkskin leather. The sheath is also a classic style, being wood with leather straps. Blade:100mm. Oal: 220mm.
Mint, unused condition.
RANDALL MADE KNIVES. USA. "TRIATHLETE".
This knife was part of a collection I bought and had been handled in elephant ivory by the previous owner. Obviously, that made it illegal for me to sell in the UK, so I passed the knife to one of this country's top Makers - Steve Nowacki. Steve stripped the knife back to its original state and has made a very nice leather neck sheath to accompany it. This particular Randall Model is not seen that often on this 'side of the pond'.
Excellent condition. £275 inc. UK p&p.
SOLD KEITH FLUDDER. AUSTRALIA. "RECURVE HUNTER".
Details added asap. £350 inc. UK p&p.
SOLD ANDY WOOD. UK. "FIRST BLOOD".
Simply superb ! Details in HIGH END KNIVES.
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "PCT - Pacific Crest Trail".
A brand new model from Alan. Designed for a customer who was looking for a knife that would cover his needs whilst hiking and overnight camping. Having experience in hiking the famous Appalachian Trail, his next trip was to be the 'Pacific Crest Trail' and he wanted a more robust knife than the pocket knife he previously carried. I'm certain that he would not have been disappointed with this model, with a flat grind blade of premium RWL34 s/steel. This particular example has a slim handle of carbon fibre, with the inner colour exposed, and is offset by a combination of carbon fibre and s/steel pins, with an orange G10 centre pin. Complete with a kydex neck sheath and lanyard. Blade: 3". Oal: 7".
Brand new from Maker.
SOLD PUMA. GERMANY. "WHITE HUNTER".
Perhaps Puma Knives most iconic and recognised model. This is an earlier example dating from 1970 and is made from the now discontinued 'Pumaster Steel' - a carbon steel. As such, it shows a couple of 'specs' of tarnish on the blade and on the tang ( a common complaint on carbon knives as collectors always protect the blade from tarnish but often forget to do the same on the handle where they have held it ! ). Despite this, the knife is in remarkable condition for a 50 year old knife. Complete with its original sheath and box - which, unfortunately, no longer has the foam insert which I presume has perished over the years. This is reflected in the price. Excellent condition. £295 inc. UK p&p
RANDALL MADE KNIVES. USA.
SOLD Top - Model #15 5-1/2"CDT.
SOLD Bottom - Model # 1-6" Stainless.
Two stunning Randall knives made as a matching Set but equally capable as being a centrepiece of a collection on their own. Both have a host of extra cost features, particularly the rounded n/silver butt caps - which I have never seen before on a Randall knife - and super nice Sambar Stag, with great colour and size which contrasts nicely with the n/silver guard and black and aluminium spacers. With Randall Made Knives having a waiting list of between 5-6 years this is a great opportunity to beat the queue ! Both knives complete with original sheaths.
Mint, unused cond. £725 Each, inc. UK p&p
SOLD KEN RICHARDSON. USA. "FRONTIER HUNTING Set".
I originally thought that this set was made by 'Silver Stag', USA but there are no makers mark on either blade. However, it is very much in that style with handle of Mule Deer antler. Who ever made this set, it certainly is eyecatching and would be a great talking point in a Collection, with scrimshaws of a Deer and Bighorn sheep on the stag crowns. Brass guards, which show a few light scuffs on one side from being inserted into the sheaths. Large blade: 8-1/4". Oal: 14". Small blade: 3". Oal: 7-3/4".
Excellent, unused condition. Commission sale. £195 inc. UK p&p.

Mint, unused condition. £275 inc. UK p&p SALE: £250 inc. UK p&p
SOLD KOJI HARA. JAPAN. "AIR STEP Small Belt Knife".
One of Japan's foremost Custom Knife Makers, this high quality Integral knife has Koji's 'trademark' carved "Air Step" handle, representing the terraced rice fields, common on the mountains in his homeland. It is not often I get to offer knives from Japanese Knifemakers and whoever buys this will not be disappointed. Complete with a leather 'swinger' sheath.
Blade: 2 inches. Oal: 5-1/4 inches.
Mint, unused condition.
SOLD GUY STAINTHORP. "POCKETPAL".
A lovely knife from Guy showing off his superb grinding skills. Not only that but Guy has used one of the "super" steels - LC200N. For those of you who like a more 'Tactical' style knife this will tick a lot of boxes, with a 'scalloped' G10 handle and a very well fitting kydex sheath. Also includes a large 'Tech Lock' for belt carry. Blade: 3-5/8". Oal: 8".
Mint, unused condition.

SOLD 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".

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 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.
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 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 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 ! ).
