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

The flag display with NOK dog tags from each state is fantastic.  Must have taken some time to get them all. Well done!

Hi, and welcome to the forums. I live just down the road from you, in northern Lorraine, where France & Luxembourg borders meet. Like you, I am an avid knife collector, including dozens of "knucked" blades as well as more traditional GI specimens. I am also an avid collector of F-S, Gerber and Randall pieces - the Gerber and Randall from 'Nam era and later. Also several other 'Nam era fighting knives, i.e., the usual CIA / MACV-SOG hardware, but also several LF&C "theater-modified" (ie, guards cut down) for use in 'Nam. I was stationed @ Ft Benning and Ft Bragg in the late 1970s and it was @ these locales that I found most of my pieces via garage/yard sales put on by guys still in the USArmy who'd been @ theater during 'Nam and some even during Korea. Got a lot more than merely fighting knives from these fellas; lots of other weapons, field gear, and maybe best of all stories of their careers and experiences. My own "theater" time was spent as a FAO in the USSR for several years, so my "theater" was Afghanistan, on/off, during the early 1980s, the really "dirty" campaigns.
