Edged weapons from Kingdom of Serbia/Kingdom of Yugoslavia


Recommended Posts

Please take the lead and post some of your collection and with a little luck the edge weapon collectors may follow suit.

I for one would be quite interested in seeing a thread featuring this subject.

Next sword is the same as the first one, however was used in the period between 1920 and 1922. The difference between the two is the first sword has three stars above the crescent moon of the slovenian coat of arms, this sword has only one. There are other differences from sword to sword. This one in particular has the floral designs and Kingdom of Yugoslavia coat of arms on the blade, whilst the first one does not. The designs varied from one maker to the other.

Wow, you aren't fooling around, these are a couple of really great swords.

I hope other members will be encouraged to post their material.

Very nice specimens.

Here's another officers sword, post 1922 type. This one has the etching on the blade along with the stamp Stojan Simic and Brother, Beograd. As always, Solingen made blade. Enjoy.

Here is another nice example of a bayonet. Sword bayonet for the 8 mm Yugoslavian M1924 Mauser Short Rifle, AT3 marked. The bayonet has been reworked with a nice blue finish. The blade would originally be a nice white steel colour.

Sorry for jumping far ahead in history, but I tought you are going to like this.Daggers from the Kingdom of Yugoslavia

From left to right, first, second and third are from my collection :) Unfortunatelly the catalogue from the exhibition Official Dress in Serbia in 19th and 20th Century is out of print for very long time. It is still by far the best book that I participated so far.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
