I am an edged weapons fanatic! I am not sure you folks will believe me, but I have been collecting swords and knives since I was in college... I have no former training, but, I would love to find a teacher for the medieval sword, axe and mace.
My knives (non-medieval) are as follows: Cold Steel Vaquero Grande, Kukri (not sure which one, anymore. It is with me whenever I am hiking. LETHAL Weapon) Rifleman's Tomahawk and Warhawk. I have a Buck knives M9 bayonet, a KaBar Next Generation, a Western (big) Bowie and an old Solingen Original Buffalo Skinner (LOVE this knife). Plus other cheap blades. I also have a Crawford Knives Survival Staff which is excellent...
Swords and Medieval weapons: Most of these are from Museum Replicas Limited. Grosse Messer (my favorite medieval weapon, so far) Gothic Bastard sword, Medieval Short Sword (made by Del Tin, Krupp Steel - my best sword), falchion, Anelace, sword-hilted dagger. I have a Cold Steel 1917 Cutlass and a war hammer. I also have a River Thames Mace and a Pole Axe from Museum Replicas Limited, one of the best weapons I have gotten from them.
Money is tight these days and Museum Replicas quality is going down hill (steadily since I purchased my first sword from them), so I have not been able to add to the collection for a while. I hope this does not sound like boasting; I am not. I just like talking about swords and knives and sharing my collection.
Blessed be the LORD my Rock, Who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle. My lovingkindness and my fortress, My high tower and my deliverer, my shield and the ONE in whom I take refuge!
