I usually try find blades in fairly good condition, but I bought a really pitted rapier from Hermann Historika some years ago - just because it was so pitted:


The grip was fairly nice, with the...

Many thanks for valuable help. The short one is of course a carbine. Both these guns are marked Suhl, but are close to identical to the ones I believe were used in the Danish/Norwegian army (mainly...

Dating a matchlock & a wheellock

I recently was lucky enough to get hold of a couple of muskets for my collection - the two first ones on the picture. Literature on weapons used before 1750 in the Danish/Norwegian army is almost...

As mentioned before, my knowledge on DkN muskets and rifles is not too bad, but I have only collected edged weapons the last ten years and axes only the last few.

None of my axes have the original...

I still call them tessaks - no I'm aware that almost 16 % av the tessaks had straight blades and that the one on the previous tessak probably is a tessak blade, I'm just not sure that this is the...
