Nice one, I have the correct reference somewhere. Even such repros are rare.

Sorry to say it does look like a prop, nice wood though. I would have tried to check if it is hardened (need some feel & experience).

The halberd is late, but could be a sign of rank, flag-top and such. Mind that halberds were made and carried as part of many west european churches regalia, as late as the 20th c.

I agree with Jasper, this saber is totally out of context to the 18th c. and is much earlier. The distinctive pronged pommel and matching bars of the cross guard are good signs of the 16th c. however...

Aaaahhh, I collect them too. They may be found even with a legit aluminum head, that can be tell by the white tarnish and crude finish.

Very, very nice khanjar. Though I think the horn parts are not rhino but probably bovine, it is not to disrespect the item. While the form is clearly Syrian/Majdali, the work looks Armenian. I've...

Sure, from my collection: 1st one looks exactly the same (in working condition), check the 2nd photo to see its cross-section.
2nd axe (3rd photo) I sold recently. I had more in the past.

A stone soft enough to be drilled with a simple bow drill and such a small diameter hole, would likely be prone to...

Punjab has some area in modern Afghanistan. The blade is actually slightly wider than common Afghani axes, but the overall appearance is alike, including the back strap.

I see no problem - not an auction, the seller is active here and a personal friend. If you check the description you'll see he noted the two speculations (we even discussed it today :D ).

What do you think about this item here: http://www.oriental-arms.co.il/item.php?id=5683

Personally, I think it is much too elaborated to be ammunition, and not too heavy to be thrown by hand.

Have seen one or two axes in the past, I'm afraid it's not European at all, but from north-west India (Sind), as evident from the polygonal socket and decoration. Thin blade means it IS a combat axe.

2. this pommel type is just wrong to that kind of...
