Baskethilts and dirks weren't the only weapons being used during the 18 century. Wink the following are a few belt knives and a poll hawk, a smoothbore fowler and 2 rifles.

James,

Those are some very nice pieces. I would be interested to know who made the two knives and the pole axe. That antler handled knife is one that really caught my eye.
