Was going through the Rock Island Auction site and saw these knives for bid. Est price is $1400-2500. Thought some of our knife enthusiast would be interested.

Interesting. Looks like three 3rd pattern knives, one 2nd pattern "Fatman", and I'm unfamiliar with the one that has a stacked leather handle. Have to do some digging.

Cool find, Koz!!

I have 2 that I am posting here. Any comments on the leather handled one?

Where did you get those? The leather stacked one was a knife made in the 70's if I remember right. Got one on a plaque some where from the 5th SFGA.

Either one would look good sliding into Ayman Al Zawahiri's eye...
