View Full Version : Old knives

Who has some old or antique knives.

I have this Japanese Type 30 Arisaka bayonet that my grandfather brought home after serving occupation duty in Japan after WWII.

I think it was pretty much brand new, he was allowed to take it from a bunch of surrendered equipment that had been stockpiled.
It has a Tokyo Armory tang stamp.

This next one is an old Spanish Mauser bayonet, I actually found this one sticking in a tree when I was about 12.

About a quarter of the handle was missing, looks like someone cut it off.
I had my father put a leather grip on it, also made a sheath for it, it's long gone now though. I used to carry this thing everywhere in woods when I was young. I thought it was the coolest thing ever, I was so proud of it. :0aSunglasses_Emoji:

Toledo Spain tang stamp.

My grandfather made this knife a long time ago, as well as the sheath. I inherited it when he passed.

Not much to look at, but he made it and that makes it special to me.

Don't have a big collection but the oldest we have is a British .303 rifle and bayonet from WWI. Pretty cool piece of history.
