Re: Vintage Swinguards

Chris51P,

I have a Medici style which is the identical twin of yours except the stamp is just the letters "AKC" over "ITALY" which I bought in late 2003. I was laid off in Oct 2003 and remember celebrating my layoff by buying that knife and a few others :D

Re: Vintage Swinguards

JulesVane, Nice set! Thanks for posting. The horn on your 7 is really nice. I have a 7 with gorgeous light horn and have seen others in that size with great horn. Seems they allocated some beautiful horn for the sevens. I have a couple of really nice 11s, one in stag, one in nice dark horn. Send me ...

Re: This "Stay At Home" gets old!

Sammy - it is a reference to COVID19 and the fact that it originated in China.

Re: Buck 110 Autos

Thanks folks! I managed to avoid acquiring one of the conversions up to now, but now that Buck makes an automatic that may change. I chuckled at their product review icons - anvils :lol:

Re: Buck 110 Autos

Re: Imitation Horn

Re: Imitation Horn

The protest was calling for police to release video surrounding the death of John Neville, a man who died three days after he was arrested and taken to the Forsyth County Law Enforcement Detention Center. If the accounts of those involved are even remotely accurate, the personnel did everything they...

The following is from a local news channel's website about an incident in Winston Salem: "Before the protest started at 9 p.m., police say a lieutenant had a conversation with the protestors r...
