SOME NEW LISTINGS
NEW: MATT LAMEY CUSTOM FIGHTER This is a never carried, never used fighter by Matt lamey. Matt's work is spectacular! I own several other Bowies and fighters by him. This one is a fast handling fighter forged from 5160 steel with a stainless guard and micarta grip with a lined thong hole. The 9 inch blade has a beautiful long clip point that is semi-sharp and a primary edge that is razor sharp. The swell at the end of the grip facilitates a technique which increases the blade speed in a cut by pulling with the little finger. Hard to explain but it does work. It comes with a very high quality leather sheath instead of the ubiquitous plastic and kydex found prevalent today. The forward slope of the elegant guard makes for a comfortable thumb rest. This is a very high grade fighting knife that would be hard to upgrade at any price. Price shipped CONUS is $525.00 obo Shipped in a free zipper pouch. Matt's knives are selling for well over $1,000 now. (I made a price correction on this knife)
O Tanto: A Custom large tanto (almost a wakizashi) by my old friend Gary Bradburn. It took three tries before he got a blade that didn't crack on quench. This magnificent tanto is the result. Stark simplicity with dyed red ray skin and epoxied black ito (wrap). It is water quenched hi carbon steel using the traditional clay coating to develop a genuine hamon. The one side has a very detailed sterling silver dragon menuki. The blade is 12.5 inches long with an overall length of 16 inches. It has been a safe queen all its life. Gary has passed and I am keeping all of his smaller tanto, but I am selling this one, and this one only. He was a master of the Shobu style tanto.
Gary was famous for his Shobu style Tanto and taught many aspiring bladesmiths his craft. I have debts to pay or else this would not be for sale. I am asking $650 OBO shipping included in CONUS. You won't find a custom tanto of this size and quality for any less. It comes with the fitted kydex sheath as shown.
I am selling off some of my Bowie collection to pay for a new addition to my Commando Knife collection. Hate to see them go but I can't afford to keep everything.
No. 1A STAG BOWIE: Another high quality custom Bowie knife. The ricasso is stamped "Byrd". The highly polished blade is just over 9 inches flat ground and very sharp. The long clip is not sharpened. A brass habaki (collar) is fitted to the ricasso. A beautiful german silver guard is expertlt fitted. The handle scales are genuine stag with no cracks and held in place by three nickle silver pins. its original brown leather sheath is included. I am asking $350 NEW SALE PRICE OF $325 shipped CONUS
No. 1b This is not a Brandsetter Bowie, That would cost you over $800 HALF HORSE HALF ALLIGATOR BOWIE: This is a nice older Brtish style Bowie, from probably the 1960s. No makers name but really good quality.The 9.75 inch blade is sharp and has a nice long clip on the back edge. The leather sheath has german silver mounts and is very well made and a perfect fit. The scales are tight with no cracks, made from bone, with German silver pins, guard and shield escutcheon. An excellent choice if you are into cowboy shooting or reenacting. I am asking $325 shipped CONUS.
NO. 2: This unusual French dagger looks like a flolder and indeed there is a folding model. The hilt is metal painted black with some loss of paint. It is tight with no wiggle. Unfortunately there is no sheath for it. The blade remains unsharpened and is a full 10 inches long with a 5 inch hilt. The crossguard is integral. Price CONUS is reduced to $90 $110 including shipping. It is a very unique piece. It would be easy to remove and repaint the aluminum scales bringing it back to new condition.

Two WW2 vintage miniature daggers each 8 3/4 inches long. They have nicely made stacked leather washer handles. They are fitted with brass guards and pommels. They are tight with no wiggles.

There are two very detailed and high relief floral menuki under the wrapping. It is not a cheap knife, but the quality is tops!! $450 shipped CONUS
Unusual, flamboyant? Yes this is a custom knife I had made as an experiment. I wanted a bigger version of my Cobra, and I consigned two makers on the USN site to make their version. It certainly looks more like an Al Mar Warrior than my Cobra. The color of the grip is USN bile green. It comes with a nicely made kydex sheath. The blade is about 5 3/4 inches and overall length of about 11 inches. You will never see another one like this anywhere. price is $350 shipped Conus.
VietNam Era Garcia Survival Knife: These were produced in South America during the Vietnam era and sold by Randall in their sheaths. The pommel screws off revealing a cavity for fishing line, hooks, etc. The grip is stacked leather washers and everything is tight. The guard is designed with holes for lashing the knife to a pole to make a spear. The sheath has its original sharpening stone in the pocket. The "Randall Made" stamp is clearly seen on the sheath frog. A war horse of a knife. Asking only $250 shipped CONUS
Tine Dagger: A modern adaptation of the WW-II SOE tine dagger. It is not very accurate, but it is a better knife than the originals. SALE PRICE $175 $225 shipped CONUS The maker charges $220 for this very knife.
