Collectors

Wanted to share this rare US navy divers knive!

Made by Imperial Co

less than 1200 made in 1961

My buddy TypeKing got it at a auction some time ago for $15.00 and it was sold for big money by him!

1st batch was made in 1961

info in book by M.H. Cole noted author of 4 books on US knives!

1st batch made cost the navy 99.67 which was more than a M'16 at the time!

Collectors Corner shows this as the US section has been empty of anyone for 2 yrs!

Did not want to waste my time on Dead section!

So here it is!

I think you have all the information on this knife already. I could not find any more info, other than they say a second and third batch were made in the early 80's, but very very few.
I only found one offered for sale on a old knife forum for $3,500.00
A very rare knife indeed.
I'm still wanting a old Morse brass one, with original strap.
