When I started this section, I was waiting to see where it goes.

I'm ready to see what you have in Pandora's box.

My old Bayonet

Postby BrokenolMarine » Fri Jan 12, 2018 9:21 am

Here is the post for my Civil War Bayonet. This link takes you to it....
It's special, a gift from an old friend who has passed. It might be worth a good bit of money and a couple folks have tried to buy it. Not for sale, to me, it's priceless.

You can tell a lot about the character of a man...
by the way he treats those who can do nothing for him.

A few blades...

Postby BrokenolMarine » Wed Jan 17, 2018 11:02 am

I thought I would drop a few pics in the SWORD section, just to prove we have an interest. ;)

As a former Staff NCO in the Corps, of course I have a Marine NCO sword. THIS isn't it. Mine is locked in the gun safe in it's velvet bag, in it's shipping box. Too expensive to hang on the darn wall. It has gold trim, my name on the blade and all the bells and whistles. It's a magic sword, the leader of men.

This is a copy, ordered by a good friend of mine for me so I could hang one on the wall. :) Looks good, and It'll do, Don-keh, it'll do.

THIS, is a copy of a Calvary Saber. I didn't want to mortgage the house to buy a real one. :roll:

A young friend of mine knew I collected Guns and Knives...Swords, sharp letter openers.... and he needed to do something with this. His nephews kept messing with it. HE believes it's a Philippine knife or short sword, but now it's mine. I liked it immediately, have never seen one. (Gang, any input here?)

This was another instance where Karma came back around. We had given the young man a place to go to get away from his Brother's house for a while for a couple days, several times a month. He would come out and fish with us, sleep over, sit and read on the deck, we'd grill on the grill and just relax. His nephews were good kids, but never left him alone. He wanted to pay us back for our kindness. He also gave me a battle lance he bought at the same time.

Another friend gave me THIS copy when she was moving. A collectable..... Braveheart Sword.
It's heavy, huge, Chest high when the tip is on the floor.
