Strange Picklock

Acquired this on a popular auction site. It was advertised as a non switchblade manual opener. I noticed it had a lock hole in the blade, and a safety, so I was pretty sure, something was up. Interestingly though, there were nail nicks on both sides of the blade. My curiosity got the better of me, s...

Re: Switchblade Collecting

When I was about 8 years old, my dad used to take us to a real surplus store, in the early 70’s. Back then you could buy real surplus. Stuff with swastikas on it, and nobody batted an eye.

Unusual Pick Lock Mechanism?

I picked up a parts knife , at a gun show several years ago. The locking pin appears to be a flat ended rectangle, unlike any lock pin I’ve ever seen. It’s similar to the old sure snap knives. I don’t have the blade that came with the knife. Any idea who made this? Thanks, Joel
