Hi everyone,

I thought a thread on folk's favorite item from their collection might be fun

Here is mine!



And here is the review here on the site`. . .

http://myArmoury.com/review_tod_inlayseax.html

It's not the most expensive item in my collection but I just love everything about it. I love the handling, the aggressive angle of the blade when gripped, the inlay, the sheath- everything is spot on.

Thanks so much to Leo Todeschini and Owen Bush for making it for me.

Anyone else want to share?

Jeremy,
This is a tough one. Happy I could go lots of different ways. I'd probably go with my Davis Reproductions Notation Knife:



I'm a professional musician with an interest in early music. That's a couple layers of nerd-dom right there. Happy Add in being an arms and armor junkie and that's just super nerdy.... This piece combines all those things. It's not military and it's outside the typical period I collect, but it's such an interesting piece.

There's also something cool about knowing I'm likely the first person since a 16th century Italian nobleman to get something like this brand-new. Happy

Happy

I'm split between two. I carry a tiny patch knife with a Pakistani-made blade which is... sufficient for most light-duty jobs, so that's what I get the most work out of. It's the upper one in this picture:


But when I need to do more serious woodcarving, I'm reminded that the Finnish Lauri blade is WAY sharper.


My collection of swords and daggers is still mostly theoretical.

It is hard to choose a favorite, but my Peter Johnsson sword edges out the rest. Everything about it is perfect. There's a reason Peter has the reputation he has!
