Vintage Swinguards

My small collection of vintage swinguards in 9", 8" & 7". 3 with the desirable Made in Italy stamps. Interestingly, the 9" stag model has a full flat-grind blade with no swedge that I don't think is too common on vintage models. ...

Re: 11" Folgore Picklock

JV, Would you consider the horn Brazilian or French? Do you care? Either way it's a beauty. Thom Hey Thom! I wish I understood the terms "Brazilian", "French Tip", "Primo", "Blond", etc. better. Just my opinion that it's all just prettier cuts from the same horn, but I have no idea really. One thin...

Here's a piece I feel very fortunate to have. An 11" (28cm) Folgore Picklock.

Re: 6" Omega Shell Wrap

Is there a before picture? I probably missed it, or forgot I seen it. Bill is being modest using the term "worn" lol. Here are a few before pics from the person I acquired it from. Much like the after Bill's restoration pics don't do them justice, the following pics don't truly show how bad shape t...

6" Omega Shell Wrap

Here's a little 6" Omega Import Co. Shell Wrap Picklock that our own Bill DeShivs did an amazing restoration on. Literally brought it back from the dead. Thank you so much Bill! https://i.imgur.com/bGaBcsy.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lal7FxF.jpg https://i.imgur.com/obFMzu0.jpg https://i.imgur.com/csL0at...

Re: Before and After

Andrew Lee Adams at AIK does a great job with engraving and filework, but one thing I can't deal with is when they replace the traditional brass pins with 24K plated screws. I see they didn't do that with the original one Thom got from them, which I'm sure glad to see. The Brazilian horn was a great...

Re: EdgeCo. Knife?

Yes I agree with the differences. I have seen these sold with the exposed lever spring and hidden spring. The nail nick ones were often shipping with no spring in them and it took a three seconds to install the spring.... Thanks Tom, and who sold those that you had to install the springs yourself? ...
