These USMC Raider knives are fairly scarce, and as they are quite collectible, they have also been reproduced.

Nats,
Like Jerry said they have been reproduced and they are pretty good. Originals if this, and from the pictures it's somewhat difficult, would be qujite expensive. On originals the handle and crossguards are made of pot metal and on many you find the crossgaurds are cracked or just missing because the metal is fragile, the blade will be etched with a sroll and USMC on it and the mfg will also be etched but the etching is very light and just about everyone you see you will have to look real close to even see it. Just alittle info for you on them. Hope this helps along with Jerrys comments.

Fritziii

For comparison, here is one I sold a year or so ago for around $1000. (should have kept it...)
