Re: Final piece of the due buoi line up

Very nice set - what is etched on the blade of the lever lock under Due Buoi? If I recall correctly, there were two leverlock models the "Stan" and the "Oliver"

Re: Aging Robt. Klaas LL's

Chris, According to the Kissing Crane knife company history on kissingcraneknifeco.com the "Kissing Crane brand is now owned by On The Edge Brands, Inc., a 25 year old family business in Moultrie, Ga."

Re: Aging Robt. Klaas LL's

Chris,

Yes, mine is steel lined as well. I looked through all my literature and couldn't find anything to help with the dates. An internet search yielded some interesting information about Klass as a company, but nothing relevant to your knives.

Great to see you post Steve. I had one of the colored bone Leverlettos I obtained from you in my hand today.

Re: Aging Robt. Klaas LL's

Chris, Here is all I know. I have one just like yours on the left in the photos. That model was sometimes called the "root beer" KC presumably because the translucent scales have a root beer like color when light is viewed through them. I bought mine as new stock from Knifeshop in Austria in 2003, a...

Re: DELCIMA- MANIAGO

Well Chris, apparently I forgot about it :oops: Thanks for jogging my memory. Regarding the comments about it looking German, I almost posted the same, and would have if it didn't have the swedge blade which I associate (perhaps erroneously) with Italian knives. I even went so far as to retrieve my ...

Re: Reference Book ??? Switchblades

"Art of the Switchblade" by Neal Punchard and Dan Fuller is a great coffee table book with excellent historical references. I believe Neal also authored a book on Boker published last year. I meant to buy a copy, but missed it.

Nice photo Tom! You must dine at only the finest of establishments. Having the real Mona Lisa on the wall in the dining area is most impressive :D

Re: Wandy

That's great - a nice deep Wandy stamp and n/s bolsters make for a great swivel bolster knife.

Re: Wandy

Nice, yours looks like a swivel bolster. We don't see a lot of these. From the photo, the bolsters look to be n/s. Is that correct?
