    Interesting how one hobby or interest seems to be connected to another.

    I came to this forum attracted by the Hats connection but I rapidly found out that there are a number of other interests of mine (albeit not all in the same order of dimensions in terms of time and money investment) which seem to be shared by quite a few others.

    I have always had a penchant for edged objects or edged weapons.

    Of course this has to be limited to keeping whatever we have mostly at home since we cannot exactly go around with blades in most European countries.


    But I have a small collection which entertains me ( Others whom, as I see, invest plenty of money wouldn’t see this as much of a muchness I suppose). So I have 3 African spears , Masai, Turkana (this also has a rungu, a mace) and a Congolese Ngbandi.

    Then I have A Swiss 1957 SIG Wegner Bajonet ( beautiful but, as many bajonets cannot be sharpened because is meant to perforate and not to cut), a reasonable Nepalese Kukri and a utilitarian but still nice, Collins Guatemalan cuchillo ( short version of a machete, I had that one too but with a 62 cm blade it was way too big to be practical unless in the jungle or en the even that zombies attack the house :) ).

    My real treasure is a Dutch cutlass (Klewang) by Hembrug 1911 model, issued to the Dutch Marine infantry.

    Next to these large sharp objects a small amount of pocket knives, nothing very expensive but I like them.

    I have not received it yet, but ordered one of these, a Fallkniven 35th anniversary model, Damascus blade, desert ironwood handle inserts, gold plated screws. Mass drop has them for $149 for the next few days, a limited edition of 1000.

  12. My wife's "car hatchet". Her late mother carried this in her car and it belonged to her grandfather before that. I had to use it this morning to crack a very hard squash that I was too nervous trying to open with a chef's knife.

    ^^^ Every car should come standard with a car hatchet. It could easily be stowed in the trunk with the tire iron.

    I suppose that that would be not so highly appreciated by the police... :cool:
     
  15. In the truck it would probably be looked on as a tool. Tucked between the front seat and console maybe not. I also drive around with a chainsaw all the time as (what the County calls) the road I use sometimes has obstacles that require a hatchet or a bigger tool.

    I suppose it depends on where you live.
    Out here in the pucker brush it would hardly be noticed unless as Bob says, it was laying on the seat next to you. The bed of an average farm truck here would get you put in cuffs in a large city.

    I can tell you that, anywhere in Western Europe, having this in the car (even in the back, I don’t even have a large screwdriver because of this possibility, let alone the chance you take crossing borders in Europe that a patrol can stop and search you, it has happened to me in Germany and they specifically asked if I had anything like this in the trunk...) would get you arrested or at the very least the weapon would be confiscated. I am sure that carrying an hatchet in the woods would be tolerated, but in an urban context this would be an entirely different thing. We are barely allowed these things at home in the NL, in Italy, for example, my collection of “ white “ weapons would not be allowed without a specific permit to detain them at home and the permit to carry weapons.

    Interesting. So do people who work with tools such as farmers, mechanics, construction workers, plumbers, etc. have to obtain a permit of some type to transport otherwise prohibited items?

    In Italy this is a very complex question, involving many authorities, and fora dedicated to weapons collecting discuss it at length not reaching a definite conclusion because legislation is vague and open to interpretation.

    In general terms in Europe ( different legislation in different countries of the union) we have restrictions but much depends on local laws and the interpretation of them by many different administrations.


    So you may not carry an hatchet but you may very well have a kitchen knife or a cleaver ...
