    fortapache
    (2748 items)

    My old display had every piece hung to the wall with its own hooks and or nails. Everything had to be rearranged and more holes in the wall. I had at least a half dozen pieces just sitting around waiting to be displayed. Actually maybe 9 or 10 items. I came up with this new system with chains on the wall. The knives and bayonets are hung from the chains and now I can just slide things around.
    Photo 1 is an overview.
    Photo #2 features WWII German bayonets and various others.
    #3 a couple US WWII machetes and machine gun ammo belts.
    #4 is WWII US combat knives and bayonets.
    With luck tomorrow night will be a new Mini-Plane

      Remember Talleyrand-Perigord's words to Napoleon: "You can do anything with bayonets, except sit on them !"

      What a collection!
      Did it take long to acquire so many, being antique? I would assume so.
      Your work paid off, looks great!

      Thank you very much Golgatha. I don't know about the British spike bayonet though.

      Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. Been collecting since I was a teen in the late 70s.

      I might start thanking everyone individually soon! I have become lazy.

      I like the chain idea. It suits the display.
