A Tiny "Viking" Sword
The last couple of mornings it has been frost and sub zero degrees but today the temperature was back up to a "normal" +4 Celsius, so it was time for a small trip to the forest. I wanted to check out a place so I detected my way through the forest. On my way I found a pick axe with the handle intact, some buttons, a ski binding, a gasmask canister with mask inside, a box missing its lid and a bunch of k98 casings. I came across a small area with lots of good signals and there I dug out a Norwegian 25 Øre coin from 1943, part of a Esbit burner, a stripper clip and a small "viking" sword letter opener, marked "Norge 1941". Sadly it had been broken in three parts and I didnt manage to find the handle part. I also found a couple of small ashtrays. Then I found the place I wanted to find. It had stood a couple of German barracks there and the whole slope next to them was full of signals, metal poking out here and there, and a few ovens visible through the undergrowth. I checked a few of the signals and there were buckets, oven parts, horseshoes, casings, and trash. Here might be some good stuff hiding, but I became aware of some hunters coming in to the area, so we greeted each other and I withdrew as I was unarmed and their season for hunting is shorter than mine and I wouldn`t disturb them or their prey :D Definately a spot I am going to come back to though, but that might not happen before next season..
Pickaxe with the handle still intact.

Too bad the lid was missing from this one,,couldnt find it anywhere around either.
