Hello,

 

I was born in a little village near Bastogne, one of the biggest battle for US Army in WWII, and till 10 years old, I collect items from battlefield.

My first piece was a german helmet found in a german foxhole.

Twenty years ago, i changed my focus and only collect US WWII knives.

I prefer non official knives as John EK, Baker, Richtig... but also have M3, MK1, MK2 and more.

Here are a part of my collection

I will post more pics later.

Happy to be on the place where I can learn more about knives and more.

 

All the best

Hello and welcome to the forum. Great collection, like the "civilian" knives. Would be great if you could make some pics with the sheaths.

Hi,

 That is a super collection.

I see not 1 but 2 V-42's.

Knives have always been a favorite of mine as well.

Thanks for sharing.

David
