    A lot of us probably watch Curiosity Incorporated on Youtube already. This was today's live feed. Lots of old knives and my guess is most of them are Mediterranean or West Asian. One ... was a No Freakin' clue knife. He even posted a "What is this" thread on Facebook. Just thought someone here might know or just want a good look at the metalware.

    I have a fairly decent accumulation of blades now and I don't even collect them.
    All recovered from house clearances.

    Daggers, divers knives, penknives, Swiss Army, bayonets, fighting knives, kukris, lock knives etc.

    I have about 20 jungle machetes too but they are in storage.

    You clear a house and the knives just follow you home. They make puppydog eyes and off they go!

    Some interesting pieces. Of course, all I recognize are the swiss army knives.

    I only watched about ten minutes but haven't seen anything that looks 200 yrs old to me. In general the guy doesn't know much about them and neither did the person who labeled them.
    I must say I know nothing about the supposedly Spanish knife. Other than that, some mislabeled old Moroccan koummiyas, an antique Algerian flyssa, always good. An 'Indian' dagger which I've seen many of in Middle Eastern souvenir shops, nothing exciting or high quality except for the flyssa, so I stopped watching (ADD).:(
    Please don't tell me the good stuff came last.:arghh::playful:

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    You could start your own YouTube series... after you retire. :)

    Timestamp 10:38 was the one they really knew nothing about - not that they knew much about the rest of them. (I knew the North African ones were North African, but that's as far as I get.) Even posted it on Facebook hoping someone knew. I figured he'd have a better chance with this bunch.
