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.

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 think traditional here should mean a knife/axe made and used in a particular country by the people of that country as the blade of choice.

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.
