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 AC
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.
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, moss

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?
