As time goes on, more and more publications are digitised and become freely (and legitimately) available online. Not finding any threads dedicated to listing such resources, here are some, courtesy of the Smithsonian:
The corrugation in African sword blades and other weapons
A study of the boomerang
Distribution and use of slings in pre-Columbian America, with descriptive catalogue of ancient Peruvian slings in the United States National Museum
Means, Philip Ainsworth
The Long Sword and Scabbard Slide in Asia
The Collection of Primitive Weapons and Armor of the Philippine Islands in the United States National Museum
Krieger, Herbert W.
Egerton, An Illustrated Handbook of Indian Arms (1880)
This is the 1st edition; the Dover reprint is the revised and expanded 1896 edition.
W. Hough, Primitive American armor (1895)
(Same book, two different digitisations.)
O. T. Mason, North American bows, arrows, and quivers (1893)
R. F. Burton, The book of the sword (1884)

Always handy to access Eggerton of any computer!

But it doesn't seem to point anywhere existent at the moment (at least for many people including me). Currently working links for the Smithsonian items are:
I found a working link for the Krieger Philippine book that allows for a free pdf download.
Feuerbach, A.M.; (2002) Crucible steel in Central Asia: production, use and origins. Doctoral thesis, University of London.
