Freaky Deer Hoof Poker w/Leather Scabbard

Any ideas? Looks newer, but has to be pre-1985ish. Origin? Name of this sort of knife? Value?

Re: Rizzy Confusion...

They are both legit. The one on the left is likely from the 1960s and the other one was probably made in the 1970s. Although some collectors are critical of these knives because they are cheaply made, they are old enough now that there is a high interest in them. The Rizzuto was in many movies and ...

Re: Rizzuto estileto milano knife

I remember seeing a few photos of Japan made Rizzutos with green and blue handles. Anyone else see them? Charlie am I correct they were made in those colors? I know the Korean made lever action ones came in several colors. Black, red, ivory, white, two different greens...JimBrown knows of all of th...

Re: CORICAMA Transitionals/Swivel Bolsers / South America?

Those are very beautiful, Mr. D. I know my grandparents were in South Africa at least once, but I didn't find any knives with the Coricama stamp. Had I found one, by all means, it would be yours! I'll be in southern Florida next week and plan to plunder estate sales and random unsavory establishment...

Re: Elusive trench dagger stamped "R" only?

That is a WW1 M1917 Austro-Hungarian Sturmmesser fighting knife. And from my research the "R" stands for the factory in Resicka where it was made. Being Austro-Hungarian, there should be a small eagle proof mark stamped into the underside of one side of the guard (example below). But it's easy to m...

Thank you, natcherly! It does look "touristy"

Re: Elusive trench dagger stamped "R" only?

I read somewhere along the way that the "R" could stand for George Roth.

Lebanon? Dagger....is it valuable?

This was in my father's collection. Can't find many with sheath online...also this one is pretty big. Thanks for any info. In a couple of the pix there appears to be a wonky wing - it's the sheath on the counter in the background. This dagger (?) is perfect except for one little missing red dot fill...

Elusive trench dagger stamped "R" only M1917?

It appears to have been well-used. I had a grandpa who was in Korea and one of the WWs...but that's all I know. He was actually on my mom's side of the family, and this was in my dad's collection. Any help greatly appreciated! IMG_2778 Medium.jpeg IMG_2770 Medium.jpeg IMG_2775 Medium.jpeg IMG_2772 M...
