Is there anybody in this forum who is familiar with the history of flintlockpistols of the Dutch army and the VOC - United East India Company in the 18. century?

Early dagger

A very old friend of mine sold me this well conserved dagger from his collection. Because of its very short ricasso and the style of its blade I think it is a piece made around 1550, but perhaps...

Dear Pukka Bandook,

sorry no, the barrel of my pistol has no lug to set a wrench, but you are right, it is very unusual that there is such a short stock. But in the collection of the Ruestkammer at...
