Hi Fernando,

Hi,
Europe has a long tradition of depicting scenes of the hunt and of trophies of the hunt on weapons that are particularly designed for hunting. Perhaps it may be the case in other cultures?...

Hi Cathey,
Not just bladed weapons, here is a chiselled steel shield of mine, 45cm across, also with hunting scenes. The reverse has some kind of pitch on it probably as a fixative for...

Hi,
Along a similar vein, a late 17thC early 18thC Indian Tulwar and a mid 19thC Austrian cavalry sword with an earlier, probably 18thC, Austrian made blade in the Ottoman style. Not too...

I found a Wostenholm catalogue page from the late 19thC which shows the one you posted, third from the left, but not the one I posted. I think this would put mine well into the 20thC so I...

Hi,
Does anyone have a copy of I*XL Means I Excel -A Short History of the I*XL Bowie Knife by William R Williamson that they could reference for me?
