  1. Awesome job bro. I want to send some vintage things to restore. Where can I send you it?

  2. That thing probably didn't even look that good when it was issued to the Vietnamese soldier!!!

  3. هؤلاء يهتمون بكل شيء من تاريخهم ، و دونهم يبيعون تاربخهم .

  4. great video 😀. the restoration was beautiful . I like people who give new life to old and rusty objects.

  5. "Former government," meaning the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, verses what it was after unification, The Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

  6. I saw plenty of those when I was there in 70 and 71. My military occupation of skill or MOS was 05K teletype intercept operator

  7. Take Walther Weapon oil that's much better than this WD40 stuff, to open such things.

  8. What would be really nice is that you gave it to a Vietnam museum or a US one for everyone to see. Respectfully.

  9. That looks so beautiful now. The blue tinge on the metal against the bright shine of the medal looks absolutely perfect. Congratulations on getting it spot on.

  10. Hey dude! Not sure if you can see this comment, but I have fairly rusted old hunting knife that my grandfather's father (can be my father's father.. forgot which.) I wonder, can I send it to you to restore it?

  11. Esse tipo de item não deveria ser restaurado. A história por trás da sujeira e ferrugem vale mais que qualquer brilho.

  12. My father brought Gun oil. I used to put it in bicycle chain and sewing machine. It was never used in guns. After some time father asked about oil he got a shining empty bottle only😂😂😂

  13. Watching your restoration videos is like smoking crack. One hit & you're addicted! 😉 I say you're more than an object restorer. You're an artist!

  14. I have to disappoint you, gentleman. This is not a Vietnamese gun oil bottle. This is a Soviet Army gun oil bottle from assault rifle AK-47, SKS carabine, Mosin's rifle or machine – gun PPSh.
    There were using two kinds of gun oil bottle: one-head and two-heads bottles for different kinds of gun oil.

  15. Please tell me you're going to restore that pistol you rested the oil bottle on 😍

  16. Perfect restoration , perfect video , you have really raised the bar here……very tough act for anyone else to follow !

  17. This is the Vietnamese medal "cross of valor", but it is very similar in style to Polish medals.

  18. This is only for Ngo Dinh Diem, but the Vietnamese People's Army does not have this military equipment.
