The Kila Phurba dagger is a three-sided knife, or nail-like ritual item traditionally associated with Indo-Tibetan Buddhism in which the knife is used to symbolically penetrate and break the earth. Like many of the traditional Tibetan metal instruments, the kila is often made from brass and iron (sometimes of meteoric iron) and often features three faces of Vajrakīla, a deity manifestation of heroic power. The three faces are often featured as one joyful, one peaceful, one wrathful (not in this case) and the blade is usually composed of three triangular facets or faces, meeting at the tip. These represent, respectively, the blade's power to transform the negative energies known as the "three poisons" or "root poisons" of attachment/craving/desire, delusion/ignorance/misconception. This Tibetan Kila Phurba dagger we have for sale in in very good condition and is probably from the mid 20th century. Length: 28 cm (11 inches)

This is an early American sword known as the War of 1812 Eagle Head Five-Ball sword or spadroon. A spadroon is defined as a light sword with a straight-edged blade, enabling both cut and thrust attacks. A spadroon sword is in between a small sword (which thrusts only), and the heavier-bladed broadsword and they may have single or double edged blade. This American 1812 spadroon has the characteristic eagle head on the pommel and the distinctive five ball cast into the D-shaped guard. The handle is most likely made of animal bone and it is a bit cracked on one side. While the five-ball pattern hilt faded from fashion in England and France in the 1790's, it remained popular in the United States and several patterns of this sword were made for the various American military branches. The major differences were in the shape of the eagle head as some had its beak turned down, open, open with tongue, or closed pointing upward. The blade is stained but the beautifully designed etchings can still be seen. Don't forget that this sword is over 200 years old! Length: 94 cm (37 inches)
