Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

US M7 Bayonet and USN Mark2 fighting knife
Don't mind the condition, they are a little dirty. The lady I bought them off was actually using the bayonet to cut vegetables out of her garden!

how much did you get that for as it looks to be a fixed bail version with a decal on the side ???????
Hi Turbodan , that`s a nice fighting knife by Camillus you`ve picked up there , congrats . How did the lady come by them ?
Hi, there !
Swapped two German "Patrouillendolche", ("Patrol-Dagger´s"), of World War One.
They´re looking like, they were forgotten in some dark cellar or attic over decades ...
The condition of the "F.W. Backhaus" is not so good, but the "Gottlieb Hammesfahr" looks much better !
Both blade´s were heavilly greased.
These are "honest", not overworked or "restaurated" items and IMO they´re still quite collectible.
