Re: Imitation Horn

Tom, No slap on the wrist for her. She is being charged to the fullest extent. Plus, there is another charge that makes it a felony in NC for a teacher to have sex with a student, even if the student is over 18. That is a relatively new law so here it seems to be going in the direction of getting to...

Re: Imitation Horn

Mayberry crime update: the wild women are at it again. A 38 year old high school teacher (quite attractive, her picture was on the front page of the paper) was arrested for taking indecent liberties with a minor. She is charged with having sex with 2 of her male students, both are 17 so it is not as...

Re: Tim Zinser/RagtimeRed

Tim helped me much in my switchblade education. He also lived in N.C. and we went to local shows and enjoyed time together both at his home and Atlanta shows. He is greatly missed.

Re: Imitation Horn

Tom, I haven't ever gone to Mayberry Days even though it is close to me. I have seen some videos from it including a very interesting one by Don Knotts daughter. I should make it a point to go.

Re: Imitation Horn

Well Sammy, the wild women of Mayberry must be preparing for their upcoming nefarious deeds over the holidays as things have been somewhat quiet lately. I'm relatively certain that the upcoming holiday cheer will result in some entertaining police reports. I'll keep the forum posted.

Re: A Long and very good Story

Great story and great info about Jeremy, thanks for sharing. Oh, and for the new members who might not know, when Bill DeShivs states that a knife is well made, you can rest assured that it truly is.

Re: Due Buoi switchblade

I agree with John, I like the safety where it is, albeit rather nontraditional. Pushed forward, the button will deploy the blade. Pushed back, the blade is locked closed.

Re: Due Buoi switchblade

Here is mine from the first run which were Talkblade forum knives. I also have one in stag. I posted the pictures of the backs so you can see how thick they are. These are hefty well made knives with scales flush with the bolsters and pins flush as well. [attachnt=2]IMG_0358 (2).jpg[/attachment] IMG...

Re: Presto George Schrade Sportsman Automatic Knife – Boy Scouts of America Model

For at least one year, I believe in the 1930's the official Girl Scouts of America knife was a switchblade. It might have been made by Schrade, I don't know for sure. I remember an excellent display of Girl Scout knives through the years at the Atlanta show in 2011 or 2012 that had a pristine exampl...

Re: Due Buoi switchblade

The first run of Due Buoi switchblades was a Talkblade forum knife in 2006. It is a stiletto with guards, and is scaled in dark horn. Mine is 11 of 15.
