    Yeah, thanks RC.

    Thanks for helping in your small way to increase my competition in buying one of my favorites and thereby increasing prices.:evil:

    Of course, greater enthusiasm following greater awareness might get more out there on the market for me in my continual quest to increase the quality of the ones that I hold. And further, more folk wanting them means more money for my trade-ups.

    So... Yeah, Thanks RC!

    You are welcome.
    Thank ya! Thank ya very much!

    I just hope I helped in some small way.
    In saving another great old WWII knife from the bench grinder sharpening routine.

    So somebody can use / lose it as a dandelion dirt digger in somebody's junque collection in the garage! :D

    That and maybe it'll lead to a few more of those left handed sheaths being saved.

    Sharp Pointy Things

    I have a 'folder' with that title.

    Its about to be enlarged.

    Thanks rc. Best to you and yours.

    (The 'Sharp Pointy Thing' term was stolen from a Terry Pratchett 'Discworld' work.)

    Thanks,

    Well it came in the mail today. It has very little if any blade wear as far as I can tell and the handle is tight. The back of the sheath has a man's first and last name written on it. I am going to see if he is the veteran who carried or a person who acquired it after the war. Thanks again guys for prompted more knife purchases.

    Well dang!

    All I can see is a red X in a box.

    But it looks like a real nice red-X in a box.

    Thats a nice one right there, with a good sheath too!

    How much did you have to pay, if I might be so bold as to ask?

    You done good then!

    I don't know exactly what the going rate is now today.

    But I paid more then that, more then once, just trading up to better sheaths for my dads old knife.

    Anyway, what other new knife could you buy today for $75 bucks that compares to that one historically, or heavy-duty user-ly??

    That's how I justify impulsive purchases. I may have done better with research and comparison but that would have required time and effort, plus new knives of the same quality are easily as expensive and they don't come with the built in character and history. I just purchased a Robeson Sure Edge fix blade by chance, I'll be sure to post pictures when it arrives. Thanks again rc for all the inspiration, just don't tell my fiance it's coming out of the wedding fund.

    Get her a WWII Camillus USN MK2 for a wedding present.


    PS: You might want to dull it a little with a grinder first.
    There will be days she shouldn't have a real sharp USN MK2 close at hand.
    As you are about to find out shortly after the honeymoon is over.

    Naw! I was just joking. :D
    Really!

    I was actually thinking of giving her a v44 of one manufacturer or another as the price tag is rather large. Good luck on your bidding Jim.
