Re: Older Hubertus slimline in stag or foux stag with tang stamp.

I have one but it is a newer model in real stag that has the etch as opposed to the stamp. The good news is that it is pristine. Let me know if you want photos.

Very nice group - thanks for sharing. I agree with Terry, the one at the top is a knife we rarely see.

Re: 13" Mauro Mario

That is a gorgeous picklock - many thanks for sharing. Love those old thick 13s. Tydy was mentioned, has anyone heard from him lately? He helped me much during my early switchblade education some 20 years ago. I always thought of him as a great guy and I believe I bought some knives from him. Jim

Re: The Tonight Show

Shortly after my daughter was robbed there was a $500 charge at Footlocker on it. The fact that the charge was at Footlocker didn't surprise me, what would have surprised me was if the charge was at a bookstore. :lol:

The good news is that she won't be liable for the charge.

Re: The Tonight Show

I have been staffed in Mass. for the better part of the last 9 years which meant flying there for the workweek, every week. I know the repressive self defense laws you have to deal with in Mass. and have heard and read about the ludicrous charges people face for simply defending themselves or their ...

Re: 9" "Topless Bolster"

I was going to mention the term "derby bolster" but didn't because the photos do show the derby type top bolster but the bottom bolster looks to be standard, as opposed to yours Jeff, where the bottom bolster also appears shorter.

My Baby when pissed off is scarier than any pair of our town cops. :shock: Then it seems it would be best to ensure she is not pissed off at you :lol: Speaking of pools, a lot of homes around mine have pools.

Re: Boker 712R

I haven't seen any in horn, not to say that they don't exist. I have seen them in a few colors of bone, both smooth and jigged. Does anyone know the significance of the "R"? My only example is one of the newer ones in jigged delrin, and it is etched simply as "712"

Re: Curious

It appears to be a Robert Klass Kissing Crane leverlock. These are well made desirable knives. The bad news is that from the photo is appears that the blade is "down" a good bit which means much of it has been ground away from sharpening. This is actually common among vintage German leverlocks as th...

Outstanding group - thanks for sharing. I especially like the light horn and what appears to be white bone.
