I have never seen an L76 or that Aerial dagger before.
Thanks for taking the time to share your awesome collection ::tu::
Thanks. I’m just a temporary custodian, like all of us are. We can hope the next caretaker appreciates them too.

How do they feel in hand with those handle contours?

They are VERY comfortable to grip and hold.
At least to me they are. ::tu::

WW2 PAL-RH36

This is a variation of the bright bade one I showed earlier. This one has a swedged blade w/ original parkarized finish; red and black spacers, and has a slightly longer handle than the bright bladed knife.

The original sheath is toast so I made a new sheath for it. I usually carry it when I’m walking around my neighborhood or in the woods.

My favorite ww2 knife. Hopefully it will soon have an original type handle to replace my fabricated one.

Mornin' guys and sorry to be late to the party. Here are a couple of mine. First is a un-cut AFH Bayonet dated 1943. I still have the original brown plastic handles and I believe this is an uncommon one.
Second is a USMC Bolo, Chatillon, NY with original sheath. I bought this one from the Abilene Army-Navy Store when I was about 10 or 11 years old. The man who owned the store was a man by the name of Leonard. I'm 83 years old now so that was over 70 years ago.

I only have a few of these, but the "type 1" model with the phillips screwdriver bit attached to the bail is my favorite. Apparently the bit is quite prone to coming detached with any real use. ::teary_eyes::

I think that bayonet attached to a Garand would scare just about anyone.

Did you ever use that bolo when you were a kid?
