Re: Newest additions to my collection, both on the repair list

The gravity will be difficult to repair. Making the missing parts can be done, but it will be very expensive.
It may just be cheaper to buy a working specimen.

Re: Vintage rostfrei trap door switchblade?

I would think if it came from your great-grandfather, it would be priceless.
But-once you get some offers, you'll probably sell it.

Re: Vintage rostfrei trap door switchblade?

100% legitimate. Some were made with thinner handles.

Soldering is the way to go.
You'll have to use Stay Clean flux and silver-bearing solder if you are soldering stainless.
All the soldered areas should be filed to bright metal.

Re: Jowika Knife Solingen Germany B 007

Owning a piano does not make you a musician. We had a discussion. You came along with an opinion that you can't substantiate, and I explained that you are wrong. You seem to have a problem with that. So- please provide proof that these were German Luftwaffe survival knives. We'll all be anxiously wa...

Re: Jowika Knife Solingen Germany B 007

Sir- I have been studying and collecting knives for 50 years. These knives were commercially manufactured for import to the US after 1950. They are rather common. My information does not come from "some friend told me," it comes from books, contacts in the cutlery industry, other collector...

Re: Jowika Knife Solingen Germany B 007

"There was not a lot of aluminum after W.W.2 This knife B 007 was a survival knife used by the German Luftwaffe when they were downed." Completely incorrect. Someone is making up their own facts. These knives are post 1950. Most were made by the same manufacturer and marked for other maker...

Re: fake Hubertus? Italian style swivel bolster stiletto

It's not even Italian, much less a German Hubertus.
There is someone out there with a cheap laser engraver that is "applying" things to knife blades.
