    if you ever want to sell any of the long pull spear points, please let me know! I'm hunting that exact Barlow (bottom row, second from right) right now, and I'd love to get my hands on one of the capped 15 spears in the second row!

    Take a look at my avatar and picture that sad puppy dog face begging for a charlow! :p ;)

    Okay, my inner history geek has now taken over from the knifeaholoc. Forget the knife, that coin is awesome! Is it Greek? If so, where from? Is it connected to Alexander the Great?

    Dude, you nailed it. It's from the Amphipolis mint (Macedonia), dated between 305 - 297 B.C. during the reign of Kassander, one of many generals who struggled for power after the death of Alexander III (the Great).

    Good eye!

    Thanks! I've always liked history, but fell in love with it after reading the book Alexander by Theodore Ayrault Dodge. In it he includes hundreds of ink sketches of battlegrounds and battle plans, arms and armor of the time, statues and coins. I recognized your coin from the illustrations in that book. The book is one of the best I have ever read, and is part of a series of five others written by Dodge, who lost his right leg in the battle of Gettysburg, and later became an author and professor. If you'd like I can PM you some more info in the books.

    Stay safe out there man. I hope you never have to use that knife or the aforementioned spitter of fire.

    One day maybe but not right now. I don't really need another folder plus I don't really like green scales & as far as I understand the scandi version doesn't come with the black scales. I am curious about it, but I'll just keep in the back of my mind for now.

    Holy heck, that is one awesome cake as well, I don't think I've ever seen one like it :eek:



    Isn't that suppose to go the other way around; give someone a coin made out of copper when they give you a knife? That's the way we do it over here anyway.

    You give the coin with the knife so they can pay the knife back to you.

    Ah, that's something different than what I was thinking of then. I was thought by my Indonesian grandparents to give someone a copper coin when they give you a knife or the knife will bring you nothing but misfortune.

    Could you explain this a little further though? I don't really get how the paying back is done/needed. Why would they pay for a gift, and if they would then why don't they use their own money/coins?
