Re: Tim Zinser/RagtimeRed

Re: ATS-34 vs 440c Flat grind

Hello!

Great you have one of those ATS-34 ABs. They're not manufactured anymore and they're really great knives!

Ah, that's great for Fishtail Picklock.

I will need to take at least a couple of planes from Italy, though. Plus the Greyhound bus. :-)

Re: Looking back

Hello Don!

Ah, I miss the Eugene show so much!
I think this October there’s the Blade West as well, in Portland OR.

Re: Armando Beltrame 9 inch ATS-34 Stiletto

I'm unsure whether skm.to still actively processes order. I would send them an e-mail beforehand to ask.

With a little patience, in my opinion you could sell it for the double of that price.

Hello! Mr. Santini created Superior-Italy brand a few years ago and manufactured the knives in cooperation with some Maniago knifemakers.
