Military & Police Surplus

Military and police surplus are items that are sold or otherwise disposed of when no longer needed by the military or civilian police forces. When a military force or police constabulary upgrades gear or the supplying government’s contract for too many items from manufacturers, these items are often decommissioned and sold as remainders to companies and civilians to offset the costs related. We are constantly on the lookout for unique military and police surplus from not only the US military surplus, but many countries like German military surplus and British military surplus. The varied history and inventive, durable designs seen in surplus can be a real boon to collectors, survivalists, campers, teachers, and reenactors. 

Businesses often purchase these items and resell them. Usually, the items sold by the military are clothing, bags, equipment, and tools which civilians find useful, easy to use and durable, and at great savings. Individual uniform items can make for a complete faux military uniform. Occasionally, vehicles will be sold as well, like Jeeps, Humvees, trucks, planes, helicopters, and even ships. Demand for these items comes from various collectors, survivalists, and players of airsoft and paintball.

The history of military surplus in the US dates back to the Civil War; it was the first war that had proper uniforms issued for many troops. Before this, troops were basically wearing whatever they had with them or could pillage from the battlefield. As demand grew, both sides mass-produced arms and wears. After the war ended, they sold the supplies in stores to recover some of the costs. The military surplus store online as well as offline was thus born. The police and military surplus in this section are genuine and in good condition. You’ll find items from WWII to present day. The Cold War era yielded many fine examples. You never know what you’ll find here. We’ve had everything from riot helmets, military surplus boots, military surplus clothing, munitions, and shovels to canvas pup tents and safety glasses.

Review of: Victorian Era Nepalese Officer’s Kukri

Light weight knife with a deep fat belly, great tool. I assume by the overall fit an finish, a large amount were made in a rush. Looks aside the tool is well made, there are no cracks or fractures in this blade.

Review of: WWI Issue Vintage Kukri with Original Scabbard

Excellent piece !!  Came well packaged and is a great addition to the collection.   Has some "black rust" patina in areas, but that is to be expected from an original antque kukri.  Scabbard is original to the kukri.

Review of: WWI Issue Vintage Kukri with Original Scabbard

I ordered a hand-selected WW I Kukri with original sheath and was pleasantly surprised to receive a kukri that exceeded my expectations.  The blade is in outstanding condition and still has an edge.  The grip has a few chips and well worn from use but in good shape. The sheath is also well worn and the leather is in need of conditioning but fully intact and functional.  Very happy with my purchase!

Review of: WWI Issue Vintage Kukri with Original Scabbard

I have many of the Victorian Era Kukri. Quite a few I purchased from Atlanta Cutlery. I alway request hand selected. I have never been disappointed with the Kukri I received. I purchased this complete WW1 Kukri and scabbard kit, hand selected. This was one of the very best antique khukuri I have received thus far. The blade was in excellent condition with no chips or rolls and was sharp! . . . I mean paper slicing sharp. I highly recommend purchasing one of these before they are gone. . . By the way, I bought two more. Thank you ACC
