Photo's for my friends

  1. Some have noticed that i've been off line lately.
    Had to do the move, took a position as assist. manager
    for a 8 apartment unit. Had to play captain hard ...
    Took a few days to figure out where my phone line
    had been sabotaged at.
    but here is a couple of photo's for some great people
    here on the forum. Not only my peers, but my teachers also.
    And those that are student's.
    You enrich my life.

    Nice cartridge collection. I like the knife with the deer horn handle looks like you also have some "old timer" jacknifes. Bean soup? looks good. Nice purple flower closeup.

    Good to see you back, my friend... Would like to see more of the fixed blade with the (ivory?) handle.

    What kind of flower is that, love the vivid colors!

    Cartridges, soup and a flower. I dont know whose worse, you for picking them, or me for enjoying them?

    Thanks for the post, clearly a man of style.
  9. The faux handle is attached to a replica, given to me by an old friend. Luftwaffe, i'll post a photo of it and the sheath.

    The flower is called a princess plant. first bud to open. she's about 4 ft. tall.
    waiting for it to flush. not as crisp as it should be, wind was blowing.

    Here you go, a couple back at you. Cartridges including .45 Boxer (In case of Zulus), .577, .458 Win Mag (In case of efalumps) and a pin fire. Oh, the big fellers a .50 for comparison, and the cross bow bolt is for any history buff's, dug up near here. The bolt, not the history buffs.

    The paper, thats just showing off! Its a disgrace!

    Oh and a small collection of K98 bayonets, each has a reason.

  13. The bolt head appears to be designed for armor?

    The bullet set up photo was my son unpacking some of my cartridges.
    Thing was, we hadn't moved yet.
    Soons i figure out what ammo box there in,
    i'll get them set up, photo'd, and labeled.
    He had dug out a bunch of .401 sl win.
    a few h&h rounds, and maybe a .50-110
    and assorted.

    Ya always have to be prepared for Zulu's:D

    Very nice blade, Thomas...As I suspected it would be. Love the skulls as well!

    Well spotted, yes, its an early AP projectile. Its from a cross bow. Never popular in England where we preferred the longbow. Did you know King Henry VIII made in compulsory for every male between I think 15 and 50 to practice with the longbow every Sunday. Thus guaranteeing a nation of soldiers. Can you imagine the same today with shooting?

    The .45 boxer must work, we haven seen any Zulu trouble in East Anglia ever, or elephants.
