Re: Black Beauty on ebay

very few of them actually had the "black beauty" stamp ... I imagine any appreciable money to be had with this knife is in the stamp itself, rather than the functionality (or lack thereof) This is all assuming it's "real" of course... eBay is full of scammers and idiots. there's ...

Re: *NEW* Choose New Knife For Rick Giroux's

I also signed up on off-topic; non-ring Sicilian all the way! Angelo should be able to do this etch... it's simple enough might cost 10 dollars more per knife but whatever.

Re: Signups for Rick Giroux Commemorative Knives

the RUDE, ANGRY way that she treated me online this morning, is not the way to win over any customer who is trying to respectfully do business with them. Breast surgery on none, I don't accept ANY excuse! Even FRANK is not friendly on the phone! YEP! Stick a fork in me, I am well-done!!! :| :cry: :...

Re: Signups for Rick Giroux Commemorative Knives

All of Walt's most recent runs have been N/S swiveling bolsters by Frank, he's definitely got them on hand / has the tooling... I guess my question is who on earth is making huge orders through him if Walt's run is finished and hitting shelves now? Perhaps 3knives is restocking itself? Almost all Fr...

Re: Walt's 23cm

just got the beautiful honey horn 23cm and it has the blade sticking up just enough to catch the skin of my finger when I run across it. PVK was excellent on the phone and will trade it out. They recommended a 28 cm and the blade sits nice inside. So I ordered one of those in pearlex. That's so gre...

Re: Commemorative Switch to Honor Rick Giroux

Don't see why red dot HAS to be unique to picklocks, it just seems like a feature that was lost to time and then brought back to sweeten the deal when limited picklock runs were made. Hell I just uploaded a pic of a swivel with a red dot... I think N/S and a red dot would make this run more special ...

Re: Commemorative Switch to Honor Rick Giroux

I'm thinking it would be a hybrid of sorts in that it would seem to be a cross between a picklock and a classic model swivel-bolster. Hope that this adds some further confusion, LOL! :shock: Like I said, perhaps this is the very first throwback to a transitional piece? I always knew this day would ...

Re: Commemorative Switch to Honor Rick Giroux

Okay all...just to show off my ignorance here: "Classic" suggests (to me), a swivel bolster. Nickel/Silver bolsters and red dot safety suggest (again, to me), a picklock. At the fear of complete ridicule, which one? Swivel Bolster - that should keep it on the cheaper side. N/S and red dot...

Re: Walt's 23cm

Well, the QC saga continues... The French Tip Horn one appears to have yet another problem, on my way to the Marlborough, MA knife show today I heard a click and a thwack, as it deployed in my cup holder and tore through its baggy... I guess the safety doesn't work at all! When safety is all the way...

Re: Commemorative Switch to Honor Rick Giroux

An 11" or 9" classic in dark horn would be best. That was Rick's favorite. (All my commemorative knives are 9". But, I know that you guys like the 11" or 28cm better.) I will get the prices from Sara Beltrame next week. That will determine the size and the price of the knife. We...

Re: Walt's 23cm

Adjusted knives arrived! They do sit deeper, perhaps only by a nano-meter or two but I'd say it turned at least one of them into a "keeper" - being the catch-and-release collector that I am, I will probably end up selling 1-2 of these pieces that aren't "perfect enough" for my OC...
