Review of: Flechette Darts 1 lb pk - US Military Surplus

I have no idea what I will do with these. None of mine came rusted. The vast majority are collated in opposite directions in a two-threaded coil. I think I'll try to see what weapon they might have been used in.  Another reviewer said they might be good as blowgun darts. I'm thinking I might try that.

Review of: Gurkha Officer's Patch Knife

The knives are as described and part of the history of the palace armory at a fair price.

Not even playing, I bought 2, and they are absolutely beautiful.  You can't go wrong, these things are worth every penny.

Review of: Gurkha Officer's Patch Knife

My experience is much like Dan's. Atlanta cutlery is a great outlet for antiques and odd items. They are also usually the cheapest and pack well. These knives and such when gone they are gone forever so buy what you can.

Review of: Gurkha Officer's Patch Knife

I'd ordered two of these back in June of last year, they'd been on backorder since. It was well worth the wait, these are in perfect condition! I have an original Bhojpure kukri and scabbard, and these are going to be as close to the original karda and chakmak as I'm going to get. Very pleased with them!

Review of: Gurkha Officer's Patch Knife

Very nice antique patch knife.  It came covered with a cosmoline type preservative and it was placed inside a small plastic bag.  Put it in mineral spirits for about 1/2 hour to take the cosmoline coating off the knife.  Took some steel wool to the brass bolster and end cap and wow!!  They both shined up like new.  The blade was a little more difficult to get to shine up.  It arrived very "grey" looking, but after some work with a wire brush and steel wool, it also shined up.  I sharpened the blade (the point was dull, so I took a fine file to touch it up) and this now looks like a brand new item!! Also, as a side note - I like the balance of this small knife (it balances about 1/4inch behind the bolster). I can put this antique knife on display, or I may actually use it as a letter opener sitting on my desk!!  Once again, I have to say it - thank you Atlanta Cutlery you do not disappoint!!

Review of: Gurkha Officer's Patch Knife

Ordered one when they went on sale over the July 4th weekend. Arrived totally greased up, but on cleaning it's in like-new condition. Can't believe these are over 100 yrs old! Not sharpened, but think I'll leave it as is. Maybe order another if they go on sale again.
