What are collections?
Fixed Blade Knives
Tools and Hardware
Looks like an old pipe smokers knife.
For wire fence repairs? Pull the sections together and locks in place for mending?
That's a Ladies knife with what looks like buffalo horn handle. Possibly Victorian era and some came with cases. Good find!
Fillet knife with a gut or roe spoon.
Transmission shifter out of a very old truck or tractor?
Made cutlery from 1848 to 1983. Yours looks like WW11 military issue.
Called a Cat Skinner made by Frost Cutlery. Try searching Frost /Chipaway Cutlery fantasy knives.
Go to ' Collecting Snap-on'. Under Resources it tells when tools were made. Every year since 1927 tools were stamped with a letter, number, or symbol. Great website!
It's labeled as an "angle head obstruction wrench".
Under "Alloy Artifacts-mystery tools" there is one similar with the W stamp produced for the military during WW11.
Old Bolo, possibly from the Philippines.
Carving fork for holding a turkey, roast, etc. for carving.
Axes stamped Alexandria Ind. were made from 1897-1904.
Made in Canton Ohio, 1871-1875.
That's a Ceremonial Ghurka Kukri from India.
Hot air balloon anchor?
Left one Is Knipex Made in W. Germany.
And spoke adjuster. (at one time)
Old shoemakers ruler.
Looks like a Ang Khola style Kukri issued in the Indian Military.
Those are called Cape Chisels used for cutting keyways in machinery.
From the 1950's.
Second picture looks like the S for the Stiletto Axe Co.
It's from Thailand. I've got the matching letter opener stamped SIAM. (formerly Thailand)
My guess would be Lebanese.
R H Buhrke Co. made an assortment of canvas and leather products, golf bags, saw guards, climbing belts, tool cases, etc. starting around 1920. They were bought out by Klein Tool Co. in 1968.
Old threshing machine wrench, I believe.
That's called a Harvard Half Hatchet from the mid 1900's.

That's a cavalry sword from India. Probably 1940's or 50's.
Look up old Mongolian Ceremonial Daggers and Swords.
You have a "Funny Folder" made by Executive Knife Co. which was part of Colonial Knife Co. They were made mainly for advertising in the late 40's up to the 70's.
Very similar to some of the Mongolian Ceremonial Daggers I've got.
'Collecting Snap-on' is a great web site that will help narrow it down to approx. year of mfg.

Irishcollector is right. Circa 1880-1900.

Mongolian waistband knife.
Either Mongolian or Arabic ceremonial dagger is my guess.
Pakkawood handles are typical of Frost Cutlery. They have numerous styles of blades as well.
Vaughn & Bushnell Manufacturing. Est. 1869

Looks like a carpet knife. Orcon utility/carpet blades should fit it. They have a square punched in the center of the blade instead of round but should work.
There is one similar at antiquenavigator.com listed as a Medical Drill.
