    Would all things sharp and pointy be welcome or strictly knives?

    well let's see it, and we'll tell you...

    and since we need a gratuitous knife photo on this page

    I do have one of these, and with the bone handle and blade etching is a much prettier knife than this photo shows

    along with another limited Marbles, this one for Smokey Mountain Knife Works

    Just mistakenly posted this some where else... DERP!

    This is my favorite knife. A custom made Scottish early to mid 18th century dirk. Actual Scottish bog oak was used to make the handle. Bog oak takes hundreds of years to cure to this state.


    The clan Cameron motto is etched into the blade: "Aonaibh Ri Chéile" which means "Let us unite."


    Detail on the hand carved handle.

    Not a knife but it sure is sharp.
    Scottish Lochaber Axe on a 6 foot ash wood pole or as I call it... "A big hurty on a stick"


    WW2 Italian Carcano bayonets. I love the plum bluing.

    Nice photographs guys!

    Here my Dutch East Indies Army (Koninklijk Nederlandsch Indisch Leger - KNIL) Klewang.
    There were several variations of the cutlass model fighting sabres from the late 1800's until 1942...
    All models looks the same, some differs in handgrip, scabbard and pommel.
    First models were maby by the Dutch Army facilities at Hembrug, some in Solingen, Germany, some in the East Indies (now Indonesia) and a few thousands in the USA (Vince and Milsco).
    This example is made by Milsco and was made in early 1940 as supplies from The Netherlands were cut-off beacause of the German occupation.
    These sabres were not for ceremonial duties... Used as true weapons during the Dutch colonial period in the far east. Even used up to the 60's during the New Guinnea conflict.





    Almost same models were used in the US Navy (model USN Cutlass).

    Cheers,
    Andy

    With the navy being the most tradition-bound of all the armed services it's not surprising that in many navies cutlass drill was still considered an integral part of naval training well into the early twentieth century.

    In my opinion one of the most interesting fighting knives is the Argentine commando knife with its cutlass-like hilt.
