Guns and blades...what a thread!

These two are on me every day. Sig Sauer P238 & S&W Automatic knife.

Interesting to see how things change over the years... still have the knife and the gun but don’t carry either as much as I used to. These were on me today.

Put this together a few years back just for some retro fun.


There's nothing any newer than 1948 except for the tortoise shell comb which is late vintage European reproduction and the towel which looked "period," but is of unknown manufacture. Oh yes, and the coffee, sugar, and cream was from August 11, 2017 when the photo was taken

Each of the coins and notes were selected to have been of a type which was actually in circulation in 1948.
The doily beneath the money, pocket knife, watch, and comb was Watsy's, a pre-war neighbor from my mother's childhood.
The Bible dates to 1909 and the Thomas Hardy book shows a 1918 publication date.
The cased Gillette razor dates to 1946-1948.
The Old Spice shaving mug dates to 1940, the Old Spice cologne to sometime prior to 1950 (a still full bottle).
The Ever Ready C40 shaving brush dates to between 1940 and 1960.
The dresser platter on which the shaving items sit was Mrs. BMc's grandmother's, a wedding gift from 1934.
The Case red bone two-bladed jack knife dates to the 1920-1940 period.
The Omega 30T2 watch dates to 1944. Watch strap is 1940s new old stock pigskin.
The Mayer china cup and saucer with a 1930s style makers mark on bottom was my paternal grandmother's (I drank coffee, tea, and chocolate from those as a kid. All the grandkids did.)
The Wallace Rose Point pattern sterling silver spoon from 1934 is from Mrs. BMc's grandmother's set.
The photograph is of my dad aboard ship, a Patrol Craft Escort and was taken in summer of 1945.
The watercolor of the little kid caught on the fence with the barking puppy was painted by a great aunt in 1924.
The box of Winchester .45 ACP ammunition could be post war production but is likely pre-war.
The leather Heiser 1911 magazine pouch is immediate post-war.
The Brill 1911 holster is undated but of pre-war style.
The Colt Government Model is from 1947. I think I had its original magazine installed for the photo.
Oh yeah. The sideboard on which the menagerie sits is of oak, English made from the second half of the 19th century.

Sig P239, Zero Tolerance 0566, CRKT Arcane, Leatherman Wingman and Streamlight MicroStream USB. I have quite a few knives in my EDC rotation, but only a couple with ambidextrous pocket clips, the Arcane being one of them.
