Re: Gravity Knives(OTF's)

Apparently, these were made for a reseller. This was a common practice.

Re: AGA 13" Batwing Problem

Glad you were able to get it working.
That's a common problem on the Pascotto folding guard knives.

Re: Anyone seen of of these before?

The bolsters appear to be nickel-plated steel. The lever design. The tang stamping.
Not all Indian-made knives were particularly crude or cheap.

Re: Anyone seen of of these before?

I have not seen that p[articular knife.
However, the construction makes me think it was made in India.

Re: Red dot safety...?

Modern knives just use paint. Red fingernail polish will do.
Some older picklocks used a plastic inlay.

Re: Whats the cost

Most springs rub one of the liners. Oil the side that rubs.
LMK if that helps.
There are other reasons that it may not open properly, but the spring is probably OK.
