    Default Recent Flea Market Find: Gravity Knife!

    Greetings all,

    A buddy and myself took a trip to a little known flea market in Kentucky to meet a guy with some Civil War relics. He wasn't there yet, so we looked around for a bit. I noticed a booth with some other military items, so naturally I wandered over. Sitting in one of the display cases, I see this VERY nice first model gravity knife! I talked to the guy for a bit and asked for a little info on it. He told me that he got it from a local vet in the 80s and it sat as the center piece in his collection since. I won't bore you with the rest of the days details, but, as you can see, I ended up taking this beauty home! I couldn't pass it up for the price. I'm not going to disclose what I paid for it, but I can say it was a great deal! I also picked up a Nazi marked Radom barrel from the dealer across from this guy. It's safe to say that it was a good day!

    Cheers!

    PS: I will try to post some more pics later.

    Thanks guys! I was excited to get it home and put it in my collection. As far as value goes, what are these currently worth?
