    Default A question for collectors.

    Hello Guys and Gals,

    Here is the question that I have been thinking of. If one item in your collection could talk, it doesn't matter what, whether it is a bullet casing or a Me-262, what would you want it to be? If it gets hard to decide then you can choose two but that is it. The catch is that you have to own the item and post a picture proving you own it.

    For me, it would come down between my USN MK2 Camillus knife and my WW? Lee Enfield No. 1 Mk. 3 bayonet. Sorry for 1, the crappy picture. I took it with my ipad. 2, for the "redneck" sheath for the bayonet. I got the bayonet bare and decided to make a duct tape sheath. Duct tape truly does have 1001 uses.

    Mine would be the Uchiganta made by Nagamori of Bungo in ca. 1441.
    I handle it in times of good and ask for its strength in times of need.
    I would ask,
    Where have you been and who was your master?

    Phil. Do you own it because that sounds cool. You should post a pic of it if you do own it.

    Interesting. This is the fun part about these threads. You see stuff that would normally be locked up in either a museum or with a wealthy private collector.

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
