CHECK OUT MY OTHER AUCTIONS; I HAVE LISTED KNIVES FOR THE BEGINNING AND
WWII Santelli fencing foil knife. The following is a
brief description taken from the excellent book “OSS Weapons II, Second
Edition”, by DR. John W. Brunner, Ph.D., pages 81 and 82. “The original procurement order was for 50
with pointed blades and 50 w/knife blades( 11-4-42 ). At the bottom of the order is hand
written, “that this order be doubled to 100 each”. The knives were to be
procured from Georgio Santelli, U.S. Fencing Equipment Company, 24-34 University Place, New York City. Four of the knives are now
in the North Carolina Museum of History and several are in private collections.
It is unclear if all 200 knives were made or only six prototypes? One of the
Santelli knives is reported to have been brought back by an OSS
veteran who served in China.
Therefore, the assumption is, that at least 50 of the knives are likely to have
been procured. Regardless of the number 50 or 200 these are one of the rarest
items issued by the OSS”.
This knife was previously owned by Dr. Bill Windrum. Equipped with sheath.
Condition, Near Mint.
