Rumpel9.

Your thread has run off course. I hope you have been able to salvage some knowledge here. However, it's time to move on. This thread is closed.

Mahratt,

I can read Mr Yarom's text as supporting either you or Ariel in your different views--it is a little ambiguous. As I noted earlier, I think he may have changed his mind over time about...

Exclamation Moderator's warning!

Gentlemen:

This is deteriorating into another "it is/it's not" argument about names. These discussions are tedious and unattractive. I will close the thread and issue suspensions without further...

Gents,

We are again getting into the frustrating game (for observers) of "what's in a name." If you want to know Artzi Yarom's opinion, ask him. As best I can tell, Artzi numbers his items...

Hi Bryce:

This one may get more informed responses about British swords in the European Armory, so I'm transferring it over there. The Gill family, including Thomas Gill (II), were prominent...

I agree with Kai that there have likely been a number of changes to that area of the hilt, which does look unusual compared with the decorations seen on many kampilan. However, Charles has come at...

Very sad to hear of the loss of another esteemed colleague on these pages. Knowledge and wisdom in our areas of collecting are hide to find, and Mare Rosu had an abundance of both. His contributions...

Hi Thomas,

Just to follow up on my post above. The comment that I referenced is as follows:"The true Kachin sword is now rarely seen south of Myitkyina and Mogaung. The Shan article is in common...

Gustav:

Lovely sikin! The folding of the blade is well shown and I like the pattern. As far as widening of the blade towards the tip, I have not seen this before. In my experience, the edge and...

Some personal observations about this topic

Gentlemen:

This has been a very interesting and wide ranging discussion that Thomas' weapon has generated. I fear, however, that this thread has strayed somewhat from the object of discussion, and...

Hi Charles:

Nice kampilan and a well done repair. The use of whale bone is entirely consistent with the culture, particularly on Maranao kampilan, and I like the overall effect. Best I have been...

As you can see, several experienced people have noted that your example seems to be the norm with regard to the relative lengths of Kachin sword-dao and their open-faced sheaths. This...

Hi Rick. Thanks for that info. I think the OKC has been around a while, at least into the 19th C. I found online pics of similar knives described as Shipleigh butcher's knives made for OKC in the...

Old knife set from Ontario Knife Company

This is a set of seven knives in the "Old Hickory" series from the Ontario Knife Company. I have had the set since 2002 and it has just been lying around since then. It came from a friend's...

Hi drac:

I enlarged your image and it appears to read "Lucban." That area should clean up once you get it, and you can read it more clearly. Picture attached.

Hi Charles,

Truly unusual kris and scabbard. I'm inclined to agree with Kai that the blade may be early 20th C. The fullers are atypical in form and the blade seems unusually wide for its length,...

Actually it might. As you know, and Fernando correctly pointed out, current items for sale cannot be referenced in Discussions. A July 4th item is more likely to be an active sale than one...
