WTB M1880 Knife

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have an M1880 knife that they'd be willing to sell, either repro or original? PM me please! :)

 

Also, alternatively, if anyone has a link to where a repro might be bought, that would also be good. My google-fu failed me.

Hey pard if you will send me your email address I will send you two pictures  (Front and Back)

of two knives,  which might be something you are looking for.

One of the knives it 13 1/2'' and the other is 14.14''

The sheath is home made and one which I made when I was in Rendezvous  shooting.

One has a bone handle with a brass  button on the end and has a hand guard between the handle and the blade.

The other one has a hard leather handle with three brass screws on each side.

I would have sent pictures, but the system would not allow it or I don't know how to do it.

(a repro)

 

The originals in any reasonable shape seem to go for about $300 and up!

Is one that still might be available.

 

Good luck, GJ

There’s a seller on eBay who sells a god repro. Keep an eye out there

They sound like nice knives, but I'm looking for the military knife from Hostiles specifically. Thanks!

Thanks- I've been able to find originals that are definitely up there in price, but the repros have proven a little more difficult to find without being out of stock.

 That's the one- I've reached out to the seller in the second link but the email bounces back. I'll see if I can get anywhere via phone. Thanks for the link, I appreciate it!

Thanks- I wish it were closer to the 1880, but the profile and handle have some differences. I appreciate the tip!

Thanks Muley Gil! Maybe I can shake one out from a SASS member or dig one up on eBay.

I would shoot Jerry Lee AKA "What Price Glory" an email.   Ask him if he would do a repro.  He has been doing a ton of Indian War era stuff...hopefully one is in  the works.
