Is it a knife or a pistol?
Well, incredibly it is actually both.
Ian from Forgotten Weapons tells us all about this really odd Norwegian 1846 Postførerverge Knife-Pistol.
This weapon looks like something that Hollywood came up with for the next pirate movie. It certainly is a real and a possibly potent weapon. It was made for the Norwegian Postal Workers to guard against attacks.
The Norwegian 1846 Postførerverge Knife-Pistol is one of those dual purpose weapons that is made to serve many purposes. Back in the past when reloading pistols was extremely slow a back up bayonet in hand would come in handy. Well this weapon is just that. Fire off two shots and then you are left with one formidable blade. How is that for a dual role?
Ian from Forgotten Weapons actually feels this weapon is actually pretty handy. There were only 152 of these weapons were ever made. Take a close look and see how intricate everything works together in this epic edged weapon.
