Recently, I visited the Hong Kong Maritime Museum. Although small, it has a fair number of artifacts related to South China's seafaring past. One section had a few antique European arms and armour. There's not much, but just the same, I figured they might be of interest to some members on the board, particularly because it is unlikely that you will have seen these pieces before, unless you visit the museum yourself.

The photographs are not as good as I would have liked, but c'est la vie. The first photo shows all three weapons as a set: a flintlock pistol, a dagger, and a small sword. The second photo is a close-up of the hilt end of the small sword. The third features the dagger, while the last gives a better view of the flintlock.

My favourite piece in the set is the dagger.

Enjoy!
