Re: Hubertus Shell Puller Restoration Required!

Hi Dan, If you do find someone here in the USA to fix it, you might have a hard time getting it back to the UK! :cry: There is a member on this forum (good guy, or should I say bloke) “gravknife” A.K.A. Ian and he lives in the UK. I could be wrong, but I recall he was having one hell of a time getti...

Ganzo took a crap.

Hello Bill and the Gang, My EDC. Ganzo finally took a crap on me. I have to say I got my moneys worth out of this knife and hate to toss it in the junk drawer in the kitchen. Does any one know where I can get the coil spring spring for it? Also I'm sure there are a multitude of springs to choose fro...

Re: Counterfeit Leverletto or not??

While tang stamps are a good tool to use for identification, learning what specific knives are supposed to look like is a much better tool. Yes Bill I agree, however in my opinion the more resources you have at your finger tips the more bullets in your gun. For Example, there is a eBay listing for ...

Re: I need help identifying this knife

Looks like an old imperial, maybe made in the 60's I think sammy is correct on the Imperial, I had one with yellow scales in the 70s? And the other only difference was mine was made in Ireland. I don't think they are a big dollar knife if that is what you wanted to know. Might be worth $5.00 to $20...

Re: Counterfeit Leverletto or not??

I know this post is a little old, however I seem to remember when you went to click on “BOARD INDEX” (at the top of the talk blade page), there were the first two rows which you could click on: The 1st was “GOOD ONES AND BAD ONES” this showed all the sellers that were trust worthy AND all the seller...

I just picked up a Spanish S.B....I think?

Hi Gang, I just picked up a Spanish S.B. Does any body know the name of the maker and the age (no tang stamp)? The lock that holds the blade in the open position is a little week, you can close the blade without depressing the lock. It's a hefty little knife for it's size, about 3oz. I bought it for...

Hi Jeremy,
Good to hear from ya.

Re: 15 inch Italian

I hear you. And by saying a knife is "spring assist", it apparently passes muster for eBay. Kinda like the good old days when eBay was a bustling source for our kind of knives. Back then they usually sold for more there than on the blade-centric auction sites, many of which are no longer ...
