1.1870, Brass Knuckle-Pistol Combo Apache

history classified nbsp dig 1 1870 brass knuckle-pistol combo apache

The Apache gun was an actual weapon produced somewhere between 1870 to 1900. As we all know, advances in pocket technology only reached their stride sometime after 1915, so before that time the only way a man could carry all three of these weapons at once was to combine them into a single contraption known as the Apache.

2.US Army Knuckle Fighting Knife

The knuckle trench knife was issued to US troops during WWI and carried over through WWII. The knife was used during trench warfare. The handle had built in knuckles, which were very useful for hand to hand fighting. The handle was made of brass and had the date 1918 stamped in it, along with the letters "US".

The scabbard was made of heavy duty brown leather. Strong leather stitching was applied to the perimeter to ensure its durability in combat.

This type of fighting knife design has become very popular among the collector community.

It is also a compass and a watch - only 10 cm in diameter. Made in Germany, in 1590...imagine that

Consisting of a round powder flask made of rosewood with inlaid and engraved rosette-shaped ornaments of brass and bone. A small clock with 1-12 hours twice situated on the outer ring. The small funnel of bone is closed with a springy lid made of brass. Below the center under the engraved lid with a transversally placed hinge, there is a horizontal sundial with indication of the hours from six o'clock in the morning to six o'clock in the evening. A small compass with north-south indication but without correction for the magnetic pole. The string gnomon is stretched by opening the lid and is only valid for one latitude. On the side of the flask, there is an opening to a funnel-shaped small pipe which is placed in the socket and allows for filling up the powder flask. Diameter 10.8cm

    My grandfather gave me this 1900s Miniature Pistol made in Austria.
    It had small shells that had bullets the size of half a grain of rice and would shoot out the barrel and go through 1/4 inch cardboard, lol.
    Not leathel, more like a bee sting, but could put your eye out, lol.
    Wish i could find some of the bullets today, but I doubt anyone makes them anymore after over 100 years, lol.

    Some cool guns for sure .I don't know if I'd like to get a drink from the flask gun, lol, might shoot myself. Pistols nowdays are a lot smaller too ,and the new pocket pistols are neat too. 1865 four barrel derringer .........I've got a mid 1800's four barrel derringer somewhat like these, ans it was for left handers with the fancier grip on that side. eighteen hundred twenty shot french revovler pistol .......A TV show called "Sons Of Guns" showed ,and shot an 1800's twenty shot pistol almost like this one ,recently.

    I'm kind of bordering on wishing I didn't read this.
    It is really cool, but I'm kind of the kind to lean towards "Ignorance is Bliss" when it comes to deadly weapons...

    Just as an example, didn't know any other way to describe my "kind-of-wish-I-didn't-see-th... feeling. And when most of your friends are the geeky type that spend a lot of time talking about flamethrowers, dynamites, swords, bazookas, etc. to plan for 'zombie apocalypse,' (seriously, we've had arguments about whether or not a flamethrower is a rational weapon to use on zombies - apparently it isn't by the way) one really does want to take a break from it.

    Guess my final point is:
    I hope my friends don't find out about these or else, they'll probably start scouring the web for them and I'll be hearing about them non-stop for at least a week...

    Interesting history lesson... but my favorite carry weapon is still my trusty Kimber Ultra Carry .45

    Its smaller than a snub-nose .38 and packs six .45 cal 185g Federal HydraShox rounds in the mag and one in the tube...

    Sometimes the smaller weapon can be more deadly because of its concealability
