QUALITY, Victorian Era German Silver Mounted Barrel Knife With Finnish Birch Handle Additional Concealed Blade Hinged Butt Cap With Heraldic Arms To Jones Of Caton Lancaster & Motto ‘Vince Malum Bono’ (Overcome Evil With Good), 2 Piece Scabbard. Sn 13980 - 13980
This quality barrel knife would have been an expensive purchase for any Victorian Gentleman. It s handle is wood most likely a cross-section of a fat ellipse Karellian Birch from Finland. The knife has a 3” single edged steel blade with hand tooled decorative back edge & the spine has German Silver inlay. The knife measures 7” overall and has a German Silver ferrule and butt cap with hinged lid. The top of the lid has what appears to be heraldic arms together with Latin motto ‘Vince Malum Bono’ (Overcome Evil With Good). We believe the arms and motto to belong to Jones Of Caton Lancaster. The hinged lid opens to reveal the hollowed out barrel body which conceals a smaller knife similar in construction to the larger knife but with solid body, fixed German Silver butt cap and smaller 1 ½” blade (4” overall). The knife is complete with its original 2 piece leather bound wood scabbard which has German Silver mounts. The wood is undamaged and complete but the surface of the leather has areas of wear consistent with age and use which can be seen in the images. Price for this unusual quality Victorian Gentleman’s piece worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 13980

RARE, 1990’s Yugoslav / 3rd Balkan Wars Theatre Made Personal Side Arm / Fighting Knife With Etched Panels ‘Death To Fascism Freedom To The People’ & Leather Scabbard. Sn 13895 - 13895
The Yugoslav or 3rd Balkan Wars were a series of ethnically-based wars and insurgencies fought from 1991 to 2001 inside the territory of the former Yugoslavia. These wars accompanied and/or facilitated the breakup of the Yugoslav state, when its constituent republics declared independence, but the issues of ethnic minorities in the new countries (chiefly Serbs, Croats and Albanians) were still unresolved at the time the republics were recognized internationally. The wars are generally considered to be a series of separate but related military conflicts which occurred in, and affected, most of the former Yugoslav republics. Often described as Europe's deadliest since World War II, the conflicts have become infamous for the war crimes involved, including ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity and rape. These were the first European conflicts since World War II to be formally judged genocidal in character and many key individual participants were subsequently charged with war crimes. This theatre of War made fighting knife is no doubt a personal side arm / fighting knife of one of the Militia personnel or other armed factions who fought in the Balkans Wars. This heavy knife has a 7 ½” single edged blade with deep swept top edge. The blade is 2 ½” wide at its broadest and tapers to a sharp point making it ideal for chopping, slashing or stabbing in close quarter combat. The blade has etched panels on both side. One side has a ‘clenched fist within shield badge’ above Yugoslav / Balkan Script ‘SMRT FASCISMU’ (Death To Fascism) and the reverse has a ‘death’s head skull and crossbones within shield badge’ above Yugoslav / Balkan script which roughly translates to ‘Freedom To The People’. It measures 12" overall length and has wood slab scales each inset with grooved alloy mounts. The heavy cross guard is brass. The knife is complete with original leather sheath with single retaining strap and sprung stud fastener. The price for this rare Balkans War piece includes UK delivery. Sn 13895

Vietnam Era U.S. Special Forces 'Nata' Design Fighting Knife / Machete & Sheath. Sn 13871:6 - 13871:6
This is a Japanese made Nata design fighting knife / machete. These knives were popular with U.S. troops and Special Forces serving in Vietnam. They found the 18" U.S. machetes unsuited to their particular kind of fighting. This style was so popular, that it served to influence the development of the larger Square Tip and SOG Bolo machetes. The overall length of the knife is 14 1/2 inches, the blade is 7 1/2 inches long, and 2 1/4 inches wide. The edge is hewer cut, that is bevelled only on one side. The flat side has a visible temper line and fuller. The other side is a chiselled design with Japanese symbols. The wooden handle has a ferrule and the handle is cut to accept the blade and is secured with two steel pins. The blade is very sharp. The overall condition of the knife is excellent. The scabbard is made of wood and is covered with brown leather. All stitching is intact. Riveted belt loop is present but the retention strap is broken on one side. (see 'The Military Knife & Bayonet' book by Homer M. Brett, page 327). The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13871:6
