    I hope you are having a good day, whenever you get a chance to read this.

    I created a post in the antique military and sword forum that you moderate, and it seems the post isn't there anymore. It might have been moved. My actual question was - where is the appropriate forum section to post such a message.

    I've written a fantasy book that I am attempting to make very accurate. I've done quite a bit of research but I have several specific questions regarding the time around the Bronze/Iron age transition. I believe my total list of questions is 8... is there a sub-forum where these types of questions would be appropriate?

    I understand not wanting to muddy up certain sections with off-topic posts.

    Trying To Date My Sword
    I have a sword that has been in my basement for some time and just recently pulled it out and am trying to learn a little about it. On the top of the blade it is inscribed "P. Knecht in Solingen" in script. After searching the WWW I believe it is what is called a Blucher. Since it was made by Knecht and looks much like a British M1796, I am guessing it might be an M1811 or later. As I understand it, there were two P. Knechts - a father and a son. How do I determine the age of the sword? It was given to me by my grandmother over 50 years ago and she said it was used by the Confederacy in the Civil War. Based on what I have been able to learn, this sword might be too old to have been used in the Civil War. Can you educate a neophyte to some degree. Will attempt to attache a picture. Thanks!

    I posted my monthly Rick Barrett in W2 offer to the wrong forum. I'm not sure how to delete. Can you assist?

    Hi Mark. Can you explain how I can go about advertising my new website selling Weapons? I know forum rules usually dont allow advertising in posts so thought it best to ask.
    Many thanks

    Hi Mark, I've just posted a For Sale message advertising the same thing twice as I wasn't sure the first message went. The second message is better so please disregard the first one.

    Mark. When I originally signed up for Sword Forum I put my full name down but would like to change my first name to Rob (which is what I am called) rather than Robert, which seems a little formal. How do I do this?

    Please see comment from my friend below.

    "Hi Ray, the numbering you are referring to is only for UNION of South Africa swords, in other words between 1923 - 1960. Before1923 the swords were not numbered. This one does not have the number but instead some markings which looks like a crown, with the lettering "T5 E" on the blade edge.
