No, not blades... Found this today in a junk shop for $2. It is a Pollocks of Manchester clay pipe, c.1880, with the 17th Lancers emblem "Death or Glory" represented by the distinctive skull and crossbones. It is listed as #95 in the catalogue, and there is an even nicer one listed with the same skull and crossbones, with motto, as #58.

The 17th was the cavalry regiment involved in the Charge of the Light Brigade, Crimea, 1854. Traces of tobacco still, cough* cough*

Sorry about the poor shots.

Looks like it was made in a mold perhaps?
Edit
Upon closer look, and think; it's more than likely carved.
