It has the traditional burl grip topped in brass, and a nicely tooled leather sheath. The wide blade is etched with the maker (historic J. Marttiini Knife Factory - established after WWI) and a village scene with reindeer. It is a much better than average Pukka, in very good condition.
Lot # 206 (Sale Order: 7 of 361)
A RARE US Army Special Forces Presentation Pukka Knife, commemorating the Finnish/US Spec-Ops hero Larry Thorne/Lauri Torni. The commemorative puukko was made by Iisakki Jarvenpaa Oy in Finland. On the right side of the blade is "Larry Thorne USA 10th SF" on the left side it says "Lauri Torni SA (in a box) SISSI". On the nickel silver bolster it has his service time in both the Finnish and US Army "1939-44-1952-69". The sheath has the US Special Forces shoulder sleeve insignia (patch) and the Finnish Sissi insignia. The butt is serial numbered "15". The blade is about 5" long, has a curly birch handle and is near mint. Only about 140 were produced, and were given to distinguished Spec-Ops personnel. The last one sold years ago went for $725! Larry Thorne was a Finnish WWII Captain who extensively fought the Soviets in the Winter and Continuation Wars, mostly behind enemy lines. He trained and fought with the SS until Finland expelled them. Dissatisfied with post-war Finland, he moved to the USA and eventually joined the US Army Special Forces. Stationed in Europe, Iran and later in Vietnam, he was highly decorated. He was killed on a clandestine mission in 1969.
Lot # 207 (Sale Order: 8 of 361)

This British Military Sykes-Fairbain Fighting Knife is unmarked except for "Sheffield, England" on the guard. It has a blackened brass ribbed grip, is 11" long, has a 6" blade, in very good condition except for some wear to the blade tip. No sheath.
Lot # 209 (Sale Order: 10 of 361)
A modern made copy of the rare US 1st Special Service Force WWII V-42 Combat Stiletto. It is in very good condition and is complete with leather sheath. A very authenic looking dagger of an elite US/Canadian unit.
Lot # 210 (Sale Order: 11 of 361)
This very rare US Marine Corps WWII issue Raiders Fighting Knife is in very good condition with intact guard. Based on the British Sykes-Fairbain and issued to elite Marine units like the Raiders, it was designed solely for knife fighting. They are seldom seen as the zinc handle often deteriorated - making it one of the rarest of WWII daggers. It came from an estate collection where the collector owned it for 45 years as a prized possession. It is complete with a WWII leather 2nd model sheath in very good condition. Even though it does not have the "USMC" logo on the blade (and small numbers didn't have them, or they wore off), it is the consensus of opinion of most of the local experts that this is an original Raider's stiletto. Small numbers of these were also issued to the 1st Canadian Paras in WWII, and like this example were unmarked. Blade is 7" long.
Lot # 211 (Sale Order: 12 of 361)
This original US Navy WWII issued Robeson Shuredge Mk-II Fighting Knife is in good condition, with wear to the blade. It is complete with original grey plastic sheath.

Lot # 213 (Sale Order: 14 of 361)

Lot # 218 (Sale Order: 19 of 361)

Lot # 220 (Sale Order: 21 of 361)
This war souvenir Type 94 Imperial Japanese Army Officer's Shin-Gunto Samurai Sword has a sword-smith handmade blade with a temper. Much higher quality than the later arsenal made swords, this Shin-Gunto is in very good condition with some tarnishing and slight nicks to the blade. Standard tsuba, menuki and wrapping are in very good condition, and it has a frayed Army Officer sword knot. The blade is 29" long and the 40" overall. Scabbard is in very good condition, and has a faded owner's "return" tag attached. Tang has many characters (see photos), but we have yet to ID the Sword smith. Appraised at $1100, it is a much better that average sword and you get to decide the price!
Lot # 221 (Sale Order: 22 of 361)
This 1840 dated US Military Waters M-1836 Percussion Conversion Pistol is in fair to good condition. It was converted to percussion using the Belgian style nipple in the barrel conversion. It is missing the hammer screw and swivel ram-rod, and the nipple is a modern replacement. The metal is worn and the butt-stock is cracked, but the action still works. A fairly rare pistol that could stand some TLC.
Lot # 222 (Sale Order: 23 of 361)
An Imperial French 19th Century Percussion Conversion Pistol in fair condition. The brass furniture and wood stock are in good condition, but the steel parts are rusty and lightly pitted (no legible markings on the lock). Ramrod seems to be stuck and the action is a little weak.
Lot # 223 (Sale Order: 24 of 361)
A very good condition civilian Colt Model 1860 .44 Caliber Percussion Revolver (serial number 88735) that was purchased ten years ago as an original Vermont Civil War era Colt for $1800. Checking it out with our list of experts, it look like an authentic 1860, though it is in near immaculate condition except for finish wear. All lettering, cylinder scene and markings are sharp and correct, and all screw heads look unmarred. Rifling and nipples look near mint, action is tight and there is only a little wear and scratches on the wedge. Grips a crisp with no wear to the finish. There is about 65% bluing wear to the metal, and some mixed tarnish/patina to the brass (but no pitting). Everything checks out and it looks like a good Colt, but minty examples are hard to find! Look at the photos and bid accordingly.
Lot # 224 (Sale Order: 25 of 361)
A nickel-plated Colt M-1877 Lightning "Store-Keeper" .38 caliber Double Action Revolver is very good condition. Nickel is about 60% but blends nicely into the steel. Hard rubber grips are worn but not cracked or chipped. Looks to be all matching with a good bore, and though the cylinder "floats" and trigger hangs up, the action does work in the single and double action mode. This is the rarer "Store-Keeper" model without an ejector housing, and barrel markings are very faint.
