Re: Swinguard storage

I've only broken 1 spring out of over a hundred knives, all stored closed. That was on a Rizzy and we know how crappy they were built.

Re: please help

The Case hunter looks to be 1965-1969. Not a heavy hitter but there would be a buyer out there. Hell; pm me and I'll bite. Sentiment might be a factor for not selling.

Decent knife; you can beat that price with a bit of careful shopping.

Re: Switchblade vs Folding Knife

Have 2 old Severtechs, both tanto. They are beasts but not bushcraft knives. I prefer using an ESEE Laser strike. Just can't see a reason to beat a Severtech just to prove a point; they sell too dear for that.

Re: Could someone explain the lack of enthusiasm?

I have Italians for the beauty and American for the usefulness. I also find both beauty and usefulness in American made such as Protech Brends. For me it's the Italians that hooked me on autos as a kid.

Re: Is there a way to improve the kickspring?

Sometimes with a weak kicker; the way you hold it while opening can help. Try different grips or positions of holding. Just a thought.

Re: Belt sander recommendations

Wow; I can see why Bill uses the 2x72. Those are nice, powerful, and obviously useful for folks who are true craftsmen. For my casual, minor uses I expect the 1x30 will fill the need. Thanks guys.
