Gun and Knife Fans? What are the coolest items in your collection?

So here's something y'all might not know about me- I've been collecting guns, knives and weapons since I was about five (my dad thought it was a worthwhile endeavor for me). I love gun and knife shows, if anybody here in michigan is ever interested in going. ANywho, my favorite items so far are:

1840's colt cap and ball replica revolver (.34 cal I believe)
Wakazashi from Japan (circa 1550's)
Two officer's daggers (both airforce) from Nazi Germany. (don't get me wrong, its just nice to have a piece of history, and my graps was there).

What's your best finds?

My favorite knife is the one that my Mom had a guy make for me when she was in Mexico. It has my name engraved in on side and a deer in the other. It is made from the leaf spring off of an old car. She even brought home a video of the guy making it.

A Finnish Mosin Nagant with matching numbers on the butt plate, bolt and receiver.

A huge Bowie knife of unknown origin. Not a chaep flea market version, this one's old and well made.

A rusty old Colt .45

A Ruger Super Blackhawk

A Danish Krag Model 1888/10.

That's about it.

Either my Savage 99 303 saddle ring carbine, 22 highpower model H, or 250 Savage model F takedown. I love old Savage lever guns!
Knives are just tools to me, but I do have an old Nazi officers daggers that my dad passed down. I would love to bring it in to show the kids when I teach WW2, but you know the atmosphere in public schools today.

Jessie James (the real Jessie James) .45 was supposed to be handed down to me thru my family in Oklahoma, but was instead given to a museum back there. Dang....................I really wanted that gun. I was always told I would inheirit it, but I guess when the family moved to Ca. (long time ago) they decided to keep the gun there.
Marlin 30-30
14 Gauge shotgun
old military .22 single shot survival rifle

I not a collector but, I have my fathers Colt .357 Detective Special. He retired after 25 years of being a police officer. When his cancer got to the point of no return, he selected certain items that he wanted each of us kids to have, My item is the revolver. I haven't gotten a chance to take it out and exercise it yet......

It's beat to hell and doesn't shoot very well any more but I have my Dad's Winchester Model 1903 .22 Semi-Auto. My Great Grandfather O'Brien bought it new in 1903 and gave it to my Dad when he turned 10 in 1920. First year of production with a very low serial number and uses it's own unique .22 WRF ammo that has been out of production for a good 20 years. It is styled like the larger Winchester saddle guns but isn't a lever action. Loads through the stock and it has a "Mother of Pearl" button embedded in the LH side of the stock. It's strictly a mantle piece now, it was WELL used over the years and of all my dad's guns was his favorite. Dad had it pretty rough as a kid but I think Grandad O'Brien was pretty good to him hence the attachment.
