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).

Beautiful collection, but not worth the asking price.

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).

Re: Cracked Ice/ Pearlex

I have always had a "soft spot" in my heart for the "Cracked Ice" look on a pocket auto. I had a number of folding pocket knives with the Cracked Ice polymer scales when I was a kid, I truly enjoyed them.

As many know, Iam a multi-talented performer.

I've been working on Randy Newman's 1999 tune "Every Time It Rains". This is a sad tune about a man pining for his lost love every time the summer showers soak the ground. (In the event that you are unfamiliar with the tune you can listen to it on YouTube). The number was on his 1999 "...

Re: I adore my Panama (Toquilla Palm) hats.

Excellent! The intellect of the ancients is, indeed magnificent. You likely know more than I concerning the subject. I enjoy listening to those that know more than speaking. While I possess a broad spectrum of knowledge, my study of the ancients hasn't kept pace with either you or that of the profes...

Re: Found this on Ebay

This reminds me of the old "false button" knives that were sold in men's magazines during the late 1960's and early 1970's. They specifically stated that "if you push the button, nothing happens." They went on to state that it is really a fine knife used by sportsmen and fisherme...

Re: I adore my Panama (Toquilla Palm) hats.

In the "real world" you can "virtue signal" all you like, but people judge you by, a) the way you dress, b) the words you use, c) the manner in which you carry yourself. I prefer to be viewed as classy, erudite and articulate. It isn't snobbery, but educated portent, and proper s...

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

Believe me, you won't regret your purchase. I also have an Aftermarket Buck 110. It is excellent but has no "Forever Warranty" as do the Commercial offerings. If you're smart, you'll invest in a Buck ballistic nylon belt pouch. This help keep the brass from tarnishing and pitting. The Comm...
