German Post WWII Survival Knife with Scabbard and Webbing Frog. 8881:20. Survival - 8881:20
knives are knives intended for survival purposes in a wilderness environment, often in an emergency when the user has lost most of their main equipment.

This post WWII German example has a blackened 17 ½ cm blade (20 ½ cm overall) with a single sharpened edge point and tip with a ¾ serrated edge and integrated wire cutter is in excellent condition. The hard ribbed plastic grips are held with a locking mechanism above a finger guard. The accompanying plastic scabbard with metal throat and integrated webbing frog and wire cutter attachment is in equally good condition. The price includes UK delivery. 8881:20. (Survival Knives)

WWII Dated British Military Mark I ‘Tommy’ Helmet with Original Liner and Manufacturer Marked Rubery Owen & Co Ltd of Leeds. HE 848. - HE 848
The first delivery of the Brodie to British Army troops took place in September 1915, at the rate of 50 per battalion. Initially, there were far from enough helmets to equip every man, so they were designated as "trench stores", to be kept in the front line and used by each unit that occupied the sector. From 1936, the Mark I helmet was fitted with an improved liner and an elasticated, sprung webbing chin strap. This final variant served until late 1940, when it was superseded by the slightly modified Mk II. This example is dated 1939 and has the ‘I’ to signify Mark I with the manufacturers name RO & CO (Rubery Owen & Co Ltd of Leeds who manufactured helmets between 1939 and 1943) to the underside of the rim*see images*.

SOLD SOLD (22/03) **QUALITY**LARGE**19th Century Spanish Navaja Folding Fighting / Utility Lock Knife With Sharp Scimitar Form Blade, Tortoise / Turtle Shell Form Polished Horn & Mother Of Pearl Section Scales. Sn 21540 - 21540
The Navaja is a traditional Spanish folding-blade fighting and utility knife. One of the oldest folding knife patterns still in production, the first true Navajas originated in the Andalusian region of southern Spain. In Spain, the term navaja is often used to generally describe all folding-blade knives. The etymology of the word navaja is derived from the Latin novacula, meaning razor, and the Andalusian knife known as the navaja is thought to have derived from the navaja de afeitar, or straight razor used for shaving. Like the straight razor, the navaja's blade folds into the handle when not in use. In Spain the navaja epitomized the concept of a defensive knife to be carried at all times on the person. The design is thought to have been first adopted by the working classes - mule drivers, teamsters, artisans, and sailors as well as by the majos, the "gentlemen of the lower class" of Andalusia. Its association with barateros, pícaros, jácaros and rufos (gamblers, rogues, ruffians, and thugs) comes from its frequent use as a weapon of the underworld, where it was often used to enforce the collection of gambling debts or to rob innocent victims. This quality made example has the form and characteristics of those made in the 19th Century and is large. The flamboyant razor sharp steel blade in scimitar form is 9 ½” in length and tapers to a pin sharp point. It has light staining consistent with age. The knife measures 20 ¼” overall length when open. The knife has Polished Horn & Mother of Pearl section scales secured by brass pins. 2 of the sections of polished horn have been polished until almost translucent and stained, giving the appearance of tortoise or turtle shell. The bolsters are German silver and the ball shaped lower bolsters has a small metal lanyard ring. The upper bolsters are recessed to accommodate the locking catch which operates as it should. The price for this impressive fighting / utility knife includes UK delivery. Sn 21540 (drawers office)
