Mr Bossy has some very old knives which are kept in a locked box in the garage. The knives belonged to his grandfather who died around 4 years ago aged 94. One of the knives is a samurai type sword ( not a manufactured ornamental thing ) complete with sheath. Some of the others are apparantly Ghurka and Burmese type knives. I was wondering if any buffs out there could tell me something about their value and / or perhaps just what type of knife they are and what they would have been used for. Or just any general info with regards to old military knives. As soon as i am able to take and upload pictures i will do ( however i am a complete mong at putting pics on the PC so please bear with me ) Many thanks to Part_ time _Pongo for his help so far.
