Welcome Home

Many consider "U.S. Military Knives - Bayonets and Machetes - By M.H. Cole" To be the holy grail of military knife books. It is, at least one of if not THE, best military knife books ever written. I am glad to say I still have mine. I have see them going for $180.00!

If you have one, you know how excellent it is. If you don't have one, is it worth the high prices now asked? If you love military knives, I say yes!

I can't believe the incredible quantity of information in the 220 pages!

I don't have a photo handy, but the issue knife of the US. Navy looks like a civilian hunting knife to me.

Yeah, I've seen a bunch of pictures too of WWII Soldiers and Marines and you can see their knife and it's a common civilian hunting knife!

This is very true. What's more, it wasn't uncommon for Uncle Frank or grandpa Jo to mail a knife to one of the fighting men.  When you consider the soldiers and marines were really going off to war and the WWI Mk 2 Trench knife was still the standard issue it shows are lack of preparedness.  Wrong knife for the wrong war.

Don't forget all the theater knives made in WWII.  There are books about those as well.

Speaking of military knives.....during WWII all the knife companies gathered up their standard production knives and sent them in to the war effort. So, some of the old WWII era hunting knives that a person might come across MIGHT have been a "military" knife!

Really Toby, the amount of information in it, all with great detailed pictures, is staggering.

Terrific!  another "Must Have" book.  Unfortunately i can't print my own money and  I'm not about to raise the debt ceiling.  Fortunately their are about 20 libraries worldwide that have it and I have access to all of them!   Hopefully someone will ship it my way for perusal!
