Sorry, but you need to wait for GhettoRacingKid to say you were right before posting a new picture. He will hopefully be on in the morning.

Since GhettoRacingKid hasn't come back on, and since you found that picture, we should go ahead with your picture then.

I wonder where everyone has gone. This was always such an active thread.

Well, it looks like some kind of sword. Does it have a military use?

I was thinking more on the lines of ceremonial use, like weddings and such. When we get back from dinner I will check it out.

I don't have any more guesses yet (was pretty busy last night with laundry), so I hope one of you has it. I won't be on again until we stop for the night at our next hotel.
