Can anyone ID this knife?

Postby HUMVEE Driver » Mon Jun 21, 2010 8:57 pm

This is a twin of the missing (stolen) knife from my Humungus Machine. I can't remember what it is, or even if I ever knew what it is in the first place. At any rate, I still have to replace it. Armorer?

Looks like a Spanish FR-8 bayonet.

Did a quick price search, Dave. You can find these on-line with the scabbard for $10-$30. They're pretty common. Just google 'FR8 bayonet'.

Thanks, Brad. But please,...no hero worship. Just throw money for my airfare fund. :lol:


Seriously, I don't know everything. I'm just a reasonably knowledgeable individual. 'RKI' for short. ;)

'RKI' my ass. You're my go-to guy for this stuff.

Thanks for your help! I've already found one that I'm hoping to get for under $15.00.

Thanks Dave. $15 is a fair price. They aren't that scarce. A few thousand FR8's and accessories were imported about 15 years ago and they weren't huge sellers. While a unique looking piece, it was still basically just another Mauser derivative in a market already awash in Mausers.

I won't make the 2010 Wasteland Weekend, but I'm planning on the 2011 event (hoping there will be a 2011 event). If you make that one too, we'll drink a few frosty beverages and talk 'shop'. 8-)
