Thank you for your answers!

Rick, that is indeed a match!

It seems to be factory made after all. Could it have been a simplification of the process at Milsco?!

MILSCO klewang

Hi, I bought this MILSCO klewang today. Strange is that it differs from other Milsco klewangen that I have seen before. First and particularly striking is that the wooden grip scales are attached...

"mongolian" mace

Hi there,

Bought this mace this week. Not sure what it is but according to the seller it would be a 19e century Mongolian mace. Does anyone have any idea what it really is?
Thanks!
