Re: Rizzuto variation

Way back in 1986 I got a 7" BO/BC Rizzuto with the "S" guards, plain brass bail and blue scales. It also had the "stainless steel" mark in a half circle. It was a get from a guy who got from a guy deal so I don't know how old it was when I got it.

Re: Baron Elite

If anyone wants, I believe Perryknifeworks has this knife with black blade for under $180. Not pushing his website, just noting.

Re: 17cm Latama "wasp" flat guard

That little Latama is beautiful. I had one that I let get away from me when I was raising money to buy a gas forge. I don't kick myself, exactly, because I want every knife and understand I can't have them, at least not at the same time. But I sure do miss it.

Re: Everyone's first Balisong?

It's hard to say, my first balisong was either a Pakistani all steel 5 inch bought at a flea market, or one of those Hackman copies you could buy at K-Mart for $3. I remember with the Hackman copy I took a spring from a clothespin, straightened it out and heated one end then jammed it into the plast...

Re: Custom Made Switchblade F/S

I watched a repair video on Youtube fixing a similar knife. The coilspring looked like it had been taken from an old windup alarm clock, and the firing mechanism was the Flylock design, but so simple! On the button side, hidden under a hollow bolster was a disc of metal about quarter inch thick, hel...
