You should have invested in them mate you could flog them on to a collector for a big profit after you admire them for a while, is it antique or replica mate?

and its a repro £37 for an antique 15th century would be madness lol

Yeah mate its a proper Ka-Bar USMC version its a brilliant knife chuffed with it. Yeah ive seen a few v-42's around but they weren't used that much as yanks preferred general purpose knifes (over a million Ka-Bars were issued) as they kept trying to open cans of food with the v-42 and fairbairns and promptly breaking them, and the yanks were issued with fairbairn aswell it would be great to find a US stamped one :D
