UTILITY KNIVES + OTHER KNIVES FOR SALE -

BK&KABAR. USA. "BK-7".

A super "no frills" knife designed by Ethan Becker, who originally produced a range of knives of his own design but is now working with Kabar, who now make these knives to an excellent standard. A great knife to throw into a backpack or pickup that will take a beating and come back for more. Blade:7 inches. Oal:13 inches. Complete with the original nylon, stiff sheath but no box - hence the very nice saving on the RRP.

Mint, unused condition. £95 inc. UK p&p.

JIM FISTER, MS. USA. "FILE KNIFE".

This knife was forged from a File by Master Bladesmith, Jim Fister around 1997. Still showing some original 'teeth' from the file, this would make a great using knife made by someone who knows his way around steel. According to his catalogue details - which is included with the sale - Jim would now be in his early 80's so I don't know if he is still active or not ?

Unfortunately, there is no sheath with this knife but on the positive side, I am pretty certain that the handle material is Oosic bone !

Blade:4". Oal:8-5/8". A great opportunity to own a knife by a USA Master Smith for not a great deal of money. 

Mint, unused condition. £230 inc. UK p&p

RANDALL MADE KNIVES. USA. "Model #8 - TROUT & BIRD".

A super example from this world famous, legendary knife maker. This is the Trout & Bird model, which is a very good size for a working knife here in the UK, although the truth be told, most owners of Randall Knives are simply happy to have them in a collection. This one will not disappoint, with extra cost features of n/silver guard and aluminium buttcap with thong hole plus a gorgeous 'Commando Shape' handle of Maple.

Blade: 4 "-01 steel. Oal:8-1/2".

Complete with original leather sheath and separate stone.

Mint, unused condition. NEW PRICE: £520 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD RANDALL MADE KNIVES. USA. "MINIATURE Model 25".

Details in HIGH END KNIVES.  

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.

SOLD BARK RIVER. USA. "BRAVO -1.5 LT"

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.

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 £365 inc. UK p&p

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. 

J. BEHRING -TREEMAN KNIVES. USA. "SCAGEL HUNTER".

please email for details.

New price. £425 inc. Uk p&p SALE: £395 inc. UK p&p

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".

Pre-owned in nr. mint cond. 

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

Excellent, unused condition Laminated VG10 steel example from this Swedish manufacture known for their superb knives. Zytel sheath.No box.

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'. 

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".

 

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 ) 

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 ! ).

So sad to hear that Knifemaking Legend TONY BOSE passed away yesterday.

The word legend is often used but in Tony's case it was entirely justified. More than anyone, he rekindled interest in the 'slipjoint' genre and was generous with his time and knowledge to other makers of this type of folder, including his work with W.R. Case.

I am proud to say I knew him and met him and the Knifemaking World will be a lesser place without him.

RIP
