SAS killing knives, swords and cut-throat razors are among the weapons handed in to police during a month-long amnesty.
More than 160 offensive weapons were surrendered to police in steel bins in three locations around Ipswich town centre.
The most unusual of the haul, including a num-chukkas, used in martial arts, are being examined by Ipswich museum.
Inspector Peter Haystead said: "The weapons amnesty has undoubtedly been a success, each knife taken off the streets of Ipswich has potentially saved a life.

The steel bins, on loan from Bedfordshire police, are now being used in three locations around Haverhill until the end of August.
