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 ...

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.

I have one that I bought in Ciudad Juarez in 1982. It is red and dubbed "Super Automatic".

Life is hard.

My friend called his wife a b!tch, and she called him an ambulance!
