Re: Frank B Lmt Ed 9" Picklock

Me likey! That's a great "pocket protector" if I ever saw one! Drop that in your shirt, or sports jacket, pocket and it would immediately "take the worry out of being close". Strong, pointy, and mean. Yeah, I'll go for that. :)

I'm still in love with my Buck 110 Auto.

I know I sound like a "broken record" (yes, I'm that old) but the Factory Buck 110 Auto is a "keeper". It is built for "show and go"! So many automatic knives are flimsy toys with limited function, but for $150.00 (more or less) the Factory Buck 110 Auto is a "work...

That's a beauty. It is too bad that the Socialists are taking over Mother England. The stabbings are primarily due to the radical Muslim invasion.

Re: EIG Cutlery Italy Stiletto

Nice late 50's Buffalo Horn Picklock. If you clean it up and have the "blade peek" repaired, it could fetch up to $1000 on the open market.

Re: I love my Ganzo G719

.... If you buy one, you won't be disappointed. 8) I can’t recall what model Ganzo I bought. After about a week I purchased a second. I could not get the same model so I purchased one that was slightly different and I am one hundred percent agree with FT. My knives work. I use one more than the oth...

"Value Packed" is an apt description for the entire Ganzo line. I would buy another in a heartbeat!

Re: Coricama 13" Early Italian Stiletto Switchblade Model Possibly Battle Worn WWII

That's a great knife. I'll bet that it would still serve quite well in a clinch.

It's a treasure!

Re: Help with a switchblade

It looks like a Chinese scale-release automatic. It is worth about $20.00-$30.00 on the open market. It looks as if It could be useful.

Re: Frank B. Humpback

Most stilettos aren't very useful outside of their original "thrusting" purpose. The swedge blade works much better as a "multi-purpose" blade. The D2 holds a great edge and can be put to use in the field as well as personal defense. During the 2013 period, Frank Beltrame made a ...

Another user/keeper. Have Bill straighten the blade and put it into your "carry rotation".

Re: Frank B. Humpback

That's a user/keeper. I would like to carry that in a custom holster/sheath. If that has the D2 steel companion blade, so much the better. (A D2 steel swedged blade should hold a better edge under rigorous use).

Re: Switchblade vs Folding Knife

You can get by with a Buck 110 Auto for outdoor adventures if you carefully clean it with a hydrocarbon solvent and oil it after using it to clean game. My Ganzo 719 is good for cleaning fish and small game. (Hint: They work well in the field).

I love my Ganzo G719

The long clip point 440C steel blade holds a good edge and is an EDC knife that I thoroughly enjoy. It is so "user-friendly" that, when discretely opened, I routinely use inside a "fast food" restaurant to cut my hamburger so that I won't dislodge my dentures. (This can be partic...

Re: F Beltrame Switch'-generation model

They were considered the "base" model from Frank Beltrame. That doesn't mean that they were of poor construction, they were their "no frills" model.

Re: Proposal: Fish for a Facebook Friend

Nice knife. That's a "carry" knife if I ever saw one.
