Re: ID please

Kris
There is a slot visible in the blade when partially opened ,it enables locking by a tab ,instead of the usual sear pin which engages in the hole in the blade of a usual suspect switchblade.
Hope this helps a bit.

That is an italian leverlock possibly massaro .
They came in many scale materials ,both mine have faux stag plastic scales and stainless bolsters .

I like the brass and rosewood look .These are good solid knives.

Try putting some Pus.Hair in Pine Resin ,Mr Corpse would give a glamorous effect .to said custom knife .
Just have to find the right donor for Sammy.
Its a knife I now have to see before I die .

I agree that some of the French knives lack build quality but they make up for it with panache .Heres a couple of french knives I own ,a Tarry Levigne and two out the fronts by Enee & Peylaire.
Sometimes style outweighs build quality with switchblades .
Thanks for the reply .
