Hi Fernando

Yes, the chain came with the measure. (Wish I could find a source for chain like this).
The modern day versions of these measures are marked 20, 30, 40, etc. up to 120. With...

I think you did a great job on the cleaning. You never know what you might find under that dirt and surface patina.

Great looking buckles (and bracelet) guys. I've always found these buckles interesting. Here is one of mine. I believe it's Caucasian. It's in good, serviceable condition, but does show regular...

Hi Corado

I tend to agree with the other two responses. A big give-away that it was made for decoration only is that there are no side lock screws. Just two flat-head wood screws mounting the...

Sorry I can't help with the description. That is a very neat looking blade. I'm more of a gun guy, but I would have bought it too. Looks like a daily use type knife.

Good example Rick. Note the style of chisiling/engraving on both the barrel and lock are fairly consistant, and likely done by the same artist.
