Hi guys, I wanted to share this with you. I have been a black belt for around 10 years now, and have know my Karate teacher the same ammount. Just today, I noticed he had two French berthier bayonets, a bayonet from WW1, a Russian nagant, and a 1917 trench knife. I asked him about it, and he told me he was in the military. The man is around 95 years old. He said he served in Europe (I think he is Polish, Czech) and when he came here, he got acquired them some how. He started to use them and teach with them in the 50's, 60's, like how to defend your self from an attack. To my amazement, all 4 of the edged weapons and pistol are in great condition. I just wanted to tell you guys. I might try to ask him more about his military career, or try to take pictures of his items.
