I'd keep the knife and display it. I could teach my grandkids to avoid prejudice when they notice it and to learn from history.
Nice hunt Dirtydog.
You are a smart man. You get it. Use the bad to teach the younger not to repeat the mistakes of the past. I have no children so no grand children. But great idea. Thanks for stopping by.

We find some strange stuff. The false idol worship finds are what freaks me out. Sad the chain was junk. But i learned to call most of them these days junk until they pass. Just got a large Italian 925 necklace and was shocked it looked so good when i cleaned it up. Gold luck Dawg!

Ugly part of history, but the dudes on the knife look so friendly, guy on the right is waving hello and the dude on the left is pointing out "Where da white women at"

Question

When you put the knife in the safe deposit box I would suggest you put a tag on it stating it was a metal detecting find and the location it was found and the date. That way if something happens to you, the person going through your stuff in the box won't think you are a member of the KKK. Just a suggestion.

Every knife but two that I have found at the beach have been very rusty or corroded beyond use. The other two were very recent drops. since that knife looks like it is not rusty I suspect that it was a fresh drop.

Bummer. It looked good but it's plated.



Joe,
I said it was not meant to offend. I didn't make it. I don't promote it, I just found it. I put on the US Army uniform to defend the right of all Americans. Those I agree with and those I diagram with. As far as Karma goes. I think the pepole that try to erase our mistakes will only cause us to make them again. I agree we may have a differant view on Karma but my suggestion is study the history of America, put on a uniform and you'll see history through the glasses that prvoided you the freedom and right to be wrong. Thanks for looking and commenting. Good hunting.

Thanks Felix. It's become almost the norm around here that everything that looks gold is plated. But a good hunt anyway. Thanks Cat Man.

All I said in my last reply was first that you made a valid point..and in the end that I don't know what I would have done with it..the bad karma meant that it was owned previously by someone who may have had bad intentions..not that you possessing it was a bad thing..only meant it had its own bad energy..it's a relic..we find relics.. I see that I was not clear and that you misinterpreted my meaning of bad karma..you did nothing wrong...

Thank you for your service to your country..and your brothers in arms..

I took the asvab and almost signed for a $5000 bonus..but my mother was too much against it.. I was the only surving son.. I got her point..
7 generations ago my far great grandfather Albertus Bartholomew Joy fought to free this country from the British..My father Charles Joy was a 50% disabled Marine veteran of WW2..
This is a picture of my brother..Richard Dennis Joy KIA June 20 1969..SGT CoB 1/61 1st Brigade 5th Div (M)

Let's bury the hatchet..and let this misunderstanding go.. I didn't serve..but I sure as hell understand the cost of freedom..

That's funny Scooter. I never noticed that.

My family know what I believe. And it ain't the kkk.

Thanks Kap. The bad news first. It is plated. I used a jewelers file on it and did the acid test and it's plated. Oh well! Thanks for looking friend.

Hey Joe, no hatchet to bury as far as I'm concerned. Thank you for the history of service in your family and I'm very sorry you lost your brother. I know he is a hero and you carry a lot of pride. Thanks for including the photo. My response was not indented to insult you or your family. I meant it in a general since. Best to you and good hunting

Thanks for taking you time to look Slim. I admit a little disappointed but as much plated as I have found ,I'm not surprised.

My greatest respect goes to you and your family. Your brother is a hero and my promise to you is that I meant not disrespect to you or your brother. AS for the delay on my response to you, the only excuse I can give you is I have been with my mother who has been on hospice and they called the family in. Please except my apology for the lack of a fast response and any thing I said that caused you anger or pain. My best to you and your family. My olive branch is given to you and a hero's salute to your brother.

Apologies accepted..thank you for your respect to my brother and family...My brother truly was a hero..among his awards were 3 Bronze stars with 4 oak leaf clusters and 4 Vs for
valor... standard issue was 140 rounds and 2 grenades..My brother always carried 300 rounds, 6 grenades..and 4 canteens of water..plus the radio telephone..about 20 years ago I got a phone call from a man who asked me if my brother was SGT Richard Dennis Joy..I confirmed the fact ..he then identified himself as serving with my brother..apparently he awoke in the hospital and was told how he was wounded and that my brother had saved his life..but before he got a chance to thank my brother he was KIA..he had been looking all his remaing life to find my brothers grave so he could go and pay his respects..we eventually met at the next yearly reunion of the 1/61..thank you again for your service to this country..my condolences on the health of your mother..you are a brother in arms to my own brother..we are all good as the saying goes

Well stated Cat. If we don't acknowledge history, we will repeat history. The KKK is just one of those things we should never forget. And never repeat.

Good finds.

Perhaps because he's a responsible adult that wouldn't want to get a kid hurt or worse.

I was either in the 4H or some pre-cub scout group when I, and ever other member, got our first knives, under 10 years old. Not one of us "got hurt or worse" from the knives. I've given pre teen nephews knives and not one of them have ever been hurt from them. I guess we had better parents who took the time to teach respect and safe knife handling...

The wussification of this Country is shameful...

I think you're missing something here. It's a KKK knife! Do you want your kid to have a KKK knife?
