Vic Hays Tomahawk Axe

I picked up this tactical axe the other day. It is marked Hays which I think was made by Vic Hays. I have not been able to find anything recent about the values of these…all the threads are form like 2002-2006. Any help would be appreciated. Phil

Help with a switchblade

I picked this up the other day. The only marking is the 440 stainless. Does anyone know who the maker may be? It is a good heavy knife with a wicked strong spring. It opens by moving the top of the handle sideways. Thank you

What is this automatic weapon called??

I picked this up with a bunch of Balisongs the other day. There are no markings on it. It has a very strong spring probably strong enough to pierce skin but have not found someone worthy of the experiment yet. Closed it measures 6" long and open 9" long. The point is razor sharp.

Help to ID a Maker Please

I purchased this knife a few days ago and am tying to ID the maker. There are 3 lines of writing. The first one ends in a “RO. The second ends in an O or zero. The third line I am pretty sure reads MADE IN ITALY. It is a parts or repair knife and does not work, I think the spring may be missing as w...
