    I mean by this, historic originals, not repros. I have acquired a few, including recently an LF&C 1918 trench knife. Obviously, some pics are forthcoming, but surely I am not the only person here who has Napoleonic and civil war swords in the office.

    Three knives all from the 1890's early 1900's
    All three are still in use as camp , kitchen and hunting knives.
    Top one is a Universal ...I won it at a shooting match and put on the antler handle
    Middle one is a Christopher & Johnson from Sheffield England..again won as a shooting prize and added the horn handle
    Bottom is a Russel "Green River " butcher...

    Given to me by my wife's late GF.

    Was given to him by a friend that brought it back from the Middle East.

    It has a wood brown handle with brass but it came out green in the pics.

    It was a user and not a show piece but was very well taken care of and is sharp as a razor.

    It sits next to my gun safe in case I need something faster then I can get into my quick access gun safe.

    Probably more so because it's one of a couple things he left just for me.

    Great old dude
