Re: The Passing of Pete Wehs aka Tequiza

Dear Friends, I just learned of Pete's passing a couple hours ago on Facebook! Portland Mike wrote me and said, "Hey Barb, how about a commemorative knife for the late Tequiza?" I about fell over! My memories of him were following his posts here on TB. He never did tell me what "PROSIT" meant! I am ...

Re: first mikov

If you want a beater try a boker magnum or an ak74. Good users and less money! I am a little late to jump in, but Sammy's advice is the best...I swear by the Boker Kalashnikov AK74!! It is the best beater knife, and you can pick one up at a place like Blade HQ for $29-$42 bucks. https://www.bladehq...

Re: A Sweet Pair Of 13" AGA Swinguards

Thank you, Picklocksrock! That confirms what I thought, and needed to know! So, now we know that if a 13" AGA Campolin won't fire all the way, it is a simple fix of tightening the guards. I have Bill DeShivs do it. He's very reasonable and affordable, plus you know that they are in the most capable ...

Re: A Sweet Pair Of 13" AGA Swinguards

Beautiful Barb, both of them! Now, is the only difference between these and the batwings is the guards? Identical in every other way? They are the same body shape...the 13" Bat has the different guards and NO safety switch. There is something mechanically with the Bats. If the guards become loose t...

A Sweet Pair Of 13" AGA Swinguards

Here are a couple of good-looking AGA Campolin 13" Swinguards, one in Snakewood and the other in a wood stained blue. The blue one has an oval shaped button AND safety switch! Both of these are from Robert Denisi's collection. I made time to polish these two with the jewelry wipes, but not as much a...

Re: 13" AGA Blonde Horn Bat Swinguard

When I look at the dark Bat, it looks more like Brazilian horn. It does not look like wood to me! The second Bat I showed you is also from Robert Denisi.

Re: 13" AGA Blonde Horn Bat Swinguard

By the way, the 13" dark AGA Campolin Bat has Ebony scales...I think! It is frustrating not having the knives to show you... Anyway, I bought a 2nd Blonde 13" AGA Bat. I have more pics... https://oi2.photobucket.com/albums/y26/barshoo/00%20AGA%20BL%20Bat%201.jpg https://oi2.photobucket.com/albums/y2...

Re: 13" AGA Blonde Horn Bat Swinguard

Hi Mike, He was at the dentist yesterday for a root canal and half of his face is on fire with pain, plus a migraine, so that is the reason that you haven't heard from him yet. He did see your email...I know because he told me. So hopefully he has responded by now. I will remind him... :shock:
