Handmade Artisan Knives and

Knives and Swords


If she seemed on edge, it may have had something to do with all the swords and knives on her walls.

Hernando County Sheriff's deputies paid a visit to the Brooksville, Florida, home of Nickole Dykema after her neighbor, Dorothy Clagg, complained that Dykema slashed her window screens and air conditioner with a large knife.

Investigators told WTSP that Dykema refused to let the deputies into her home, so they forced entry. There, they found more than 3, 500 machetes, swords and knives hanging on her walls, along with Halloween props like rubber masks and fake body parts.

Photos show some of the weapons arranged around a shrine.

Police said Dykema took a machete and slashed at a deputy with it, narrowly missing his head. She then ran and hid under a blanket in another room, waving a long sword in front of her, according to WFLA.

Dykema, who is on probation after being caught shoplifting knives from a Dollar Tree store in December, isn't allowed to own weapons, WTSP reports. Police used a bean bag gun and a stun gun to subdue Dykema, then took her into custody.

"The person was obviously dangerous to the community, ” Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis said in a statement. "It amazes me that these deputies were able to take her into custody without anyone being injured."

Her neighbor, Dorothy Clagg, says she's glad Dykema is in jail.

"She had a habit of banging on the inside of her house all the time on the walls, and screaming and hollering, " Clagg told WTSP. "I was just petrified all the time."

Dykema was held without bond on charges including probation violation, property damage, criminal mischief and assault on an officer.
