Default A very unexspected knife a first. A gold looking bracelet

I went out in the light rain for a 3 hour hunt today. I found the usual trash, bottle caps, 4 pennies, two quarters. I dug a lot of holes in the wet and dry sand and no more than I get out these days was happy to find anything. About and hour in the hunt I was in the wet sand and heard a nice mid tone. One scoop and it was out. It was a gold looking bracelet with the lobster clasp missing. Picture added but I haven't tested it yet. About 20 minutes later and I found a not on my bucket list knife but yet one I was surprised to see and don't think I'll ever find again. Showing the knife is not intended to offend anyone. It's just a unusual thing to find.

Good luck on the gold test. That could be a very nice score. The knife? Well, um, interesting find alright, but I guess it's a good thing the original owner lost it...'cause it ain't cool.

Nice bracelet, don't carry that knife around too long, could get you in trouble with having that in your possession. Might be better to put it back where it came from.. LOL

Fun find. Not one I'd make my normal carrier though.

Those are both cool finds! That Klu Klux Klan one is probably a pretty rare find. Definitely a conversation piece. I think if we can show condom tins, Nazi relics, bullets, and nudi tokens, I think that this ought to be a safe enough place to show that knife. I've even posted a few pot pipes.

I'd sell that knife..get rid of it.. it's bad karma in my opinion.. nothing I would keep in my house or ever put on display.. people will make assumptions if you show it off outside of this forum..

Great score on the bracelet! Did you look for any markings on the bracelet? There might be a tiny one hidden somewhere. The KKK knife was a cool find as well.

Thats a really sweet looking bracelet! Gotta be 14k! Yes, and a knife of the likes we have never seen...

Just to play devils advocate, if it's bad karma, why would you sell it and not throw it away?

On another note, I was trying to get an idea of age, googled it, and I can't believe the amount of knives there were. Some Barlow knives those would be 1970's-1990's. Just scratch my head that there is still enough members to produce knives and other propaganda.

Those are some awesome finds. Thatís an interesting knife. Hopefully that knife is old. I couldnít imagine a knife maker making something like that now.
