Ok, how is my question ? I didn’t get it thinking it was real but am curious on possibly it origin and why as some thought definitely went into making it. The D.R.P to me was an interesting add on a fake? No
Thx

Posted this in the General Discussion forum and figured it would go here as well. A Robeson Shuredge Mk2 with original sheath. The blade is full and unfortunately some idiot decided a grinder was the way to sharpen it. Luckily the grind marks aren't too deep and are slowly being removed with the help of 220 grit wet-or-dry paper and Marvel Mystery Oil.I didn't have a Robeson in my accumulation and this one makes a nice addition;especially since it was only $10.
EDIT: Upon trying to do some research I am now questioning whether this knife is in fact a military item.Although it has all the appearance of a Mk2 the blade length is only 6 inches and I thought the Mk2's blades were at least 7 inches. It is stamped USA and not USN or USMC. Any thoughts on this? I'm not really well versed in military items.

Some items that were in an estate auction I recently conducted. Thought some of you may enjoy seeing them.

Nice SA Dagger and bayonet with frog/hanger. There's a missing shield on the dagger but from your picture it looks authentic. Lots of reproductions of this knife out there, both new and old.
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

They were brought back from Europe after the war by the deceased person. He had a lot of other really interesting war related items that provided an opportunity to learn some new things.

EWMailman :
You could do your knifing community a heck of a favor by letting it be known what the military knives at your auction sold for. There is such a fluctuation between real prices and those suggested by books and the net that determining what to list at is getting tougher by the week. If for some reason you decide not to show them that is okay also.
Thank you and God Bless,

Mossdancer: Being somewhat new ( 8 mo. ) to AAPK, I am not certain of when I may be and do not want to be guilty of crossing the bounds of propriety regarding content of posts. Since you asked, I will be more than happy to share that information.

*SA Dagger missing shield and button---$350.00

*K98 Bayonet and scabbard with matching serial numbers---$130.00

Hope this is helpful

This one brought back by my Dad from WWII. No sheath. The empty diamond shaped hole in the handle once held a red inset with a black swastkia. It fell out and was lost probably 50 years ago, dadgum it. 5” blade, total length 9”. Very well made. Can anybody point me to info on this model?

That is a Hitler Youth Knife. Below is a link to a site that I always find to be helpful for identification of military items of all nations (i.e., does not endorse or promote any ideology):

"The following markings were often found on the HJ weapons, especially the HJ Fuhrer daggers. They generally appeared above the RZM marking or the maker's mark with the RZM number below. They were indicative of the HJ Group Command in which the weapon was issued."
