This is a rare Model 1853 Austro-Hungarian Pioneer Short Sword. You can tell this weapon was privately purchased by the lack of regimental markings and the fact that it has custom goat horn grips instead of the standard ones made of wood. In overall very good condition with minor period wear to the blade and scabbard and it has a nice natural patina.
Overall length is 24 1/4 inches long, the blade is 18 5/8 inches long
These come-alongs were made in Germany by Kayser, probably between WW I and WW II.

This particular set has a chain that is heavy and quite long at 10 inches, the overall length is 13.5 inches and they would have been able to control a ...

This blackjack dates from the early to mid 1900's and is a small, easily-concealed weapon consisting of a leather-wrapped lead weight attached to the end of a leather-wrapped coil spring. The strap on the end opposite the weight wraps around the wrist.
It works by storing kinetic energy in the dense core when swung, this stored energy then spreads the impact over a larger surface area; the leather covering lessens the chance of lacerating the skin and the chance of breaking bones. A blow...
