Purchased this from a forum member a couple years ago as I hadn't had a example of the Robeson manufactured USMC marked knife.
The pommel was missing but it was in such overall nice condition(and a scarce knife)that I saw some great potential to be there.
I had sourced a knife on line as a donor for a pommel but it has gone MIA here.
I contacted member Steve S here and he agreed to take on the project.I sent it off to him and couldn't have been more pleased with the results.
Steve's work is top end.He knocked this out in no time at all.I don't think it was even two weeks and that was with me sending it off and his returning it.It arrived this morning and I'm a happy camper to see this old knife once more with a completed handle.
Steve ended up fabricating a pommel from round stock.Extendng the tang and adding the upper red spacer.He finished the pommel with a weld like the originals and worked it down.
I highly recommend Steve as his work is quality and detailed.A true craftsman.Anyone who has a knife needing work shouldn't hesitate to contat Steve.Hes talented and also a collector so he does the work it like its his own.
Anyway here are the before and after shots.
The above knife by another original I have showing the broken pommel and tang.
