Ever seen another like it? I have searched quite a bit and not found one. Artzi has sold about 40 of these and all had chopsticks.

Brigands

I would like to invite comments on the portraits/caricatures on the brigand’s dagger (with a 14.5 inch blade, I would almost consider it a short sword). The pictures on the two sides appear to be...

not a plug indeed

I agree that these are not suitable for use as plug bayonets. It is surprising how pervasive this misconception is. One supposition about the brass inserts (albeit also unlikely) is that they might...
