    Default Theater Knife, Post Your Favorite(s) here

    Hello All,

    In the field of collecting we all have our favorite areas, and one of mine is theater knives. I find them interesting, as some can be a work of art or a tool for killing. I'm going to show a few of my favorites and ask you to do the same, and lets see what interesting comes up. The first is a USN mark1 with a altered handle, done by my father, while aboard ship andsent to his brother in the ETO. Nothing fancy just practical. The second i believe started as a 30-40 Krag bayonet.

    Take care, Mart

    Here's mine, got it last year from eBay, no background story to it. It's possibly a Kabar or USN MK2 blade, named with USMC. Other members have suggested that the sheath is probably not the original one. There's also a faint LF&C that had been ground off. I've got a thread somewhere in here. nice knives!

    Default Berlin by Xmas

    Mart,

    Nice.

    I picked up one a year or so ago. High quality engraved "Berlin by Xmas".

    I've been trying to determine the origins of the blade...looks slightly similar to yours....

    Hi Michael,

    Interesting knife, is that a faint "U.S" under those grind marks?
    Thanks for sharing!
