  1. Thanks for the responses guys.....With the Renaissance wax do you apply it to the leather of the metal?
  2. The second knife down is a pal USMC knife and the finish is almost perfect and the handle is solid.....There just seems to be a powdery/dusty substance all over the blade and in all the little books and crannies......I know if I could clean it up it would display great.....also this is just a temporary means of displaying the knives....I’m fairly new to the collecting game........
  3. The single red spacer models all had thin pommels to the best of my knowledge and the spacer is actually 2 pieces......

  8. What do you guys think about this trench knife? I don’t have any red flags about it being authentic but I figured a second opinion couldn’t hurt...Thanks in advance.
