From Erle Stanley Gardiner's "Perry Mason" The Tale Of The Twice-Told Twist.

Kevin O'Neil played a young juvenile Delinquent named Lenny Beale accused of murder. (By the way, the Perry Mason Season 9, episode 21, was the only episode filmed in color). Lennie (O'Neil) was charged with murder when an adult criminal confederate was found with a large Barlow knife firmly planted...

Re: Recommendation for first OTF Stiletto

An excellent "starter" OTF would be the "Lightning" (Taiwanese manufactured) knife. These are relatively inexpensive and can be had in either a clip-point blade or stiletto-style. This knife can also be a "user". (Many buy them and use them for years). If you buy an F-1...

Re: Opinions of Omerta 11" Picklock knives.

I see. Someone somewhere is selling "AGA Campolin" ring-pull, automatics that are patterned after the old "Hecho In Mexico" picklocks that were somewhat blocky and seems to have the constitution of a 1946, Dodge Flathead in-line six engine. While appearing a bit crude, they were ...

Opinions of Omerta 11" Picklock knives.

I have one of the Omerta Picklock stilettos with a 1095 steel bayonet blade and have had it for at least four years. I like this stiletto as is seems better constructed than some of my Italian knives. These are American made and proudly so.

Opinions?

Re: Self defense?

In a foreign country, I carry a cane. Being of "a certain age" gives me a "pass" among Law Enforcement officers in places such as Tijuana. They tend to ignore 63-year-old men that look as if they're in their 50's and carry a black polymer cane cut to "walking length" (3...

Re: 1950’s Shur~Snap Bowtie, Fishtail automatic

Those are great pocket knives. This was their purpose when Colonial manufactured them. These were made during the post WW2 boom for men to carry in the front pocket of their slacks. Nothing devious or evil about them, just a pocket knife that opened with the press of a button. Closing it was just as...

What a great old piece of Bell of Korea cutlery! (Talk about memories from the 1960's-1970's). Thank Jeremy for us all.

Re: Frank Beltrame Limited Edition

I love the humpback. I'd like to have one just like it with a clip-point D2 steel blade. Carrying that hidden while traveling would help prepare you any urban/rural setting. (I currently use a Sog Spec Auto II for this purpose).

Re: A.G.A. Campolin Piccolo

Even if it is a dagger blade, it looks as if it could be carried and used. Is it useful?

Perspiring minds want to know (It got up to 100 degrees this afternoon).
