WELCOME TO THE FORUM I AGREE WITH THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE FIRST KNIFE AND IT DOES FIT IN THE TRADITIONAL ETHNOGRAPHIC FIELD EVEN IF ITS IS NOT AN ANCIENT EXAMPLE OF THE TYPE.
THE SECOND ONE IS A DAGGER BUT FITS INTO THE FANTASY FIELD OF WEAPONRY AND IS FAIRLY RECENT. WHEN YOU CONSIDER HOW OLD SOME MOVIES ARE NOW THEY STILL CAN HAVE SOME AGE AND ARE COLLECTIBLE IN THE FANTASY EDGED WEAPONS FIELD. I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS A FORUM FOR FANTASY.
THERE ARE OLDER MOVIES WITH EDGED WEAPONS BUT CONSIDER CONAN THE BARBARIAN AND RAMBO BOTH CAME OUT IN 1982 THAT'S 34 YEARS AGO. SO THE ORIGINAL CONAN SWORD AND RAMBO KNIFE THAT WERE SOLD ARE GETTING SOME AGE TO THEM. SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY TO ME DOES THAT MEAN I'M GETTING OLD.
