Many of the manuals are marked that way.

Re: Anyone seen of of these before?

The bolsters appear to be nickel-plated steel. The lever design. The tang stamping.
Not all Indian-made knives were particularly crude or cheap.

Re: Anyone seen of of these before?

I have not seen that p[articular knife.
However, the construction makes me think it was made in India.

Re: Red dot safety...?

Modern knives just use paint. Red fingernail polish will do.
Some older picklocks used a plastic inlay.

Re: Whats the cost

Most springs rub one of the liners. Oil the side that rubs.
LMK if that helps.
There are other reasons that it may not open properly, but the spring is probably OK.

Re: Royal

Nice knife. Quite obviously made by the Coricama consortium.
I have not seen the "Royal" stamp.

Re: Anyone heard of Oreste Dibone

Dibon, not Dibone.
Do you have a picture of the knife?
