Unusual Gifts

A friend came round with a couple of unusual gifts today. He brought me this Roman helmet:



And a replica Confederate American Civil War sabre.



The sabre looks quite plain, but the blade is beautifully engraved for almost two thirds of its length. It's bloody sharp too as I discovered.

Nope, just a chair. A surprisingly comfy one too.
