  1. I believe that knife is also in Cole's books. Yours is in nice condition.
  2. I have a black helmet with a first class crow painted on the front. It is very faint but you can see it. I also have seen pictures of helmets stored in the berthing area during WW2 which makes sense. They wouldn't be destroyed by the salt air as fast. Also they are easy to find if GQ is called while you are sleeping.
  3. I payed around 500.00 for my smatchet and sheath a couple of years ago. Don't see a lot of them for sale.
  4. I have the same knife. The blade on mine is more like a butcher knife but has the exact same cross guard. I thought a GI made the cross guard for the knife.
  5. I picked up one of these M-5 leather sheaths the other day. I thought it was a fantasy piece too. It came with a WW2 Case knife. I just wanted the knife. I may put it up on the trade forum. Rick
  6. Really liked the book. Just love knuckle knives. Rick
  7. Crossguard looks like it is thicker in the one the Marine has in his sheath.
  8. I tried to order the back issue of the Knife World article on the Stone Knives. So far no luck the electronic version is not listed in the site. Sent an email to them but didn't hear anything back.
  9. Never have seen one. I do own a lot of home front made knives. Theater knives too. But there are a lot out there. I will keep a look out for any information.
  10. I have one with a matching swagger stick. Both have the Captains rank and name on them in gold letters. Mine is more of a sword. I also have a few medals his selective service medal and his pistol and rifle qualification medals. I picked them up for 185.00.
  11. I have the same sword. It is a USN version. I did a lot of research on it after I purchased it. Common to have on the ships back then. I have a picture somewhere of a couple of Marines with one.
