This is a photo of the interior of one of the many cutlery shops in Chania, Crete. On the shelf, on the left, you can see numerous modern Cretan knives, sold as souvenirs: some are very bad (plastic handles ...,) others very well made, with better materials.The coins that always accompany these knives are mostly reproductions , but it cannot be excluded that there are also originals. On the top right of the shelf, note a series of WWII helmets (Italian and German, I would say), as well as swords, sabers and bayonets. The Cretans are still very proud of their tenacious resistance against the Axis troops, a resistance in which Cretan knives play a not secondary role ....
