HASH

About a year ago, I published a post titled Leftovers, where I showed and described some of the odd knives I had accumulated over the years. To get rid of leftovers, you chop them up fine, and turn them into hash.  This is a hash of some of the other edged and pointed tools and toys infesting our home.

The son’s knife made of glass c/w a skull in the butt.

The skull’s a bit hazy, but then, so is the photographer.

The wife’s letter openers;
$1.49 Wal-Mart special
steel blade with cast pewter hummingbird/flower handle
antique Victorian sterling silver, which someone ruined by grinding it ‘sharp’
$30 handmade c/w rosewood handles

sdc10948

My letter opener.  A birthday gift from daughter/grandson.  Miniature Eragon sword.

sdc10949

A grandson gift.  This letter opener is banded agate stone, with Scottish thistle pommel.  Blurry, as usual.  😳

sdc10952

The son’s excess work knives.  Numbers 1 and 2 were found in ’empty’ parts cases, returned from customers.  3, 4 and 5, he purchased, #3, at a Detroit knife show, #4 in Toronto, and #5 from Amazon….’cause he doesn’t have enough knives.

My EDC, (every day carry)  $100 Gerber in nylon/Velcro belt sheath.

sdc10955

The son’s assault knife, called the “Feral Siamese”.  More of a short sword c/w skull-breaker pommel & formed Kydex sheath.  Needs a big, strong hand/arm.

sdc10958

The son’s $2000 Katana, which he won for $20.  Shown with Kydex scabbard and the winning ticket.

sdc10960

The son’s ‘utility’ Katana, called the “2014 TiKat”.  A little less fancy, built by the same maker who produced the blade for the one above.  This one is made of titanium rather than stainless steel – half the weight, with twice the strength and edge-holding, with a snug wooden scabbard.  I really need to get someone else to take these photos.

sdc10961

A decorative skinner/caper with a cast pewter wolf’s-head counterbalance and wolf scene on the handle.

sdc10964

My dragon kriss, gift from the daughter.

sdc10965

A replica German officer’s dagger with cast/moulded metal scabbard.

sdc10967

One of the son’s titanium belt buckles, this one with a single skull motif.

sdc10970

Another titanium belt buckle, this one with a dragon surmounting the Earth.

sdc10979

A matching titanium folding knife and belt buckle combo, this one with multiple, smaller skulls.  (And my hands and camera sneaking in via reflection)

Not the son’s ‘falling star pendant’,  this one is a Maltese Cross, made of Damascus steel.  A knife with this patterning is awesome.

That’s about all the knife-related stuff we’ve got.  See you again (or you’ll see me) in a couple of days.

    A nice display, Archon, if a bit edgy. Heh, heh.

  4. Quite the collection, Archon. While I am fascinated with swords (I have always wanted to take up fencing) I fear that some accident would occur. Very interesting post.
