I'm looking for one of the ├╝ber rare FS daggers made for the Americans. I've never had a really nice FS, and someone always ends up offering me too much money for me to refuse selling it. I had an original Smatchet years ago, but another collector basically gave me a blank cheque for it.

Back in the late eighties, I used to buy up WW2 issue katanas, and strip the furniture. I've found a few valuable family blades set in crappy service mountings. However, the tales of katanas chopping the ends off hot BAR barrels, and carving Lee Enfield and M14s in twain, are sadly a myth.
