Sales enquiries

This is one of the rarest WW2 Allied commando knives you can hope to own. An alloy hilted commando knife made in the style of the US marine raider's stiletto, this one blackened "parkerized", so almost certainly for a Canadian Airborne officer. The knives were believed to be private purchase items but they are so rare that very little is known about them (you can read something about them here). This one clearly saw active service as the leather sheaf has a period metal protector added; this was to prevent the knife from wounding the wearer. The 6 1/2 inch blade is in good condition, the point a little rounded which suggests period damage / use. Unlike the Camillus made USA marine raider's stiletto which deteriorated with age, the hilt on this knife is sound and solid. I doubt we will ever see one again, so the price has to be a bargain at only £800. Further / full-sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number C79 - Box 665-0.5.
