Traditional weapons from South Africa.
The battle axes are forged from one piece of steel by traditional black smiths.
The shield is made of cow hide and has a spear, hand forged and an axe.
Also the Okapi, loved by Gangstas and Tsotsis.
A couple of close ups for detail.

Nice African stuff!

I seem to remember my dad having a hide sheath and a war club made of a very dark looking wood,
he either got them in Zambia or when we lived in Mozambique.

Anyway, FWIW here are my traditional blades.





I've also got an Opinel no.8 that I've made a small mod to but I don't have a picture of it yet.

Here is my Ontario Rat5.This blade is super thick.Great for chopping wood for fire wood in the field and secondary role as a tactical fighting knife for defensive purposes.

I think traditional knives are something like 100 years old designs and knives like Opinels etc. are rather classic knives.
From Wikipedia: "The Opinel knife, or simply Opinel, is a simple, inexpensive wooden handled pocket-knife, manufactured since the 1890s in the town of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne in the Savoie region of France."

Hehehe...I know what you mean though, buddy. ;)

I don't know if mine counts as tradional but I need one more post so here are a couple pics:

Id say the bottom two look traditional but the top two don't,also a bit of information would be nice as traditional knives have a history,the Puukko or Nessmuk for an example eveyone knows that these are traditional.
