Combination weapons usually were made as technical novelties and showpieces and therefore, often are highly decorated. The finely etched strapwork pattern on this example also is found on the best German firearms, edged weapons, and armor of the late sixteenth century. Before firing this dagger-pistol, the tip of the blade had to be removed, revealing the muzzle of the gun barrel.

You have no idea about what you just said!
I swear to you, one of the guys I was with had the katana umbrella. No kidding! I told him the story and why I was practically rolling on the ground in tears.

I currently need to get data for a project and to figure out a user demographic. It would be super great if everyone who sees this to fill it out. It takes about 3 minutes to complete.
Please reblog this so I can get a larger survey result!
Detail stuff for my illustrations for the Infographic.
Working on edits now, so I’m back to fiddling around with pixels. xP
