A lady was on Antiques Roadshow from Tulsa Monday evening with a Camillus USMC Raider stiletto.

Very nice condition with a nearly full, very legible etch.

The program can be viewed on-line at PBS.org. I think the knife makes its appearance at about 25:50 in the video.

Be prepared to deal with long, non-skippable commercials.

A nice pair of Robesons Mk 1, navy marked knives.

One is as new as issued, one a theater modification.

I'm thinking the wooden butt was easy to break.

A Cattaraugus and a Case folding machete.
A Case V-42 with a replacement handle(by me until I can get the correct leather).

Truly a nice collection, The Bayo sans connector is more than likely a parade piece. I always thought thoe big colonials were pilots bailout knives. Thanks for the info.

You could be right as to the bail out knife description;my mind isn't working very well this week.It seems to me that I was told by a friend of mine who was a big military arms collector that it was a fireman's knife but that was about 30 years ago when I got it so he could have been in error as well.

Nice knives but the Kinfolks has been blued by somebody other than the factory.
